Look, it is most obvious when the Toilet is clogged. Now, the Question should be rather. Where is the location of the clog? In the Toilet ( in the Trap of the Toilet) or somewhere else?
Run water in the shower for a few minutes (Run for a Good while, Maybe FIVE + Minutes or even LONGER Like 10 Minutes. See the Pipes maybe empty or the Water May Have Drained Out Slowly.)
If nothing else is backing up like in the shower? Then it's only in the Toilet. A Reason that Toilets Backup. See Related Article.
Does flushing paper towels down the toilet have any consequences?
The Best or easiest form or method to Tackle this is to USE a Rubber CONE Type of PLUNGER (Cost $7.00.) Put the Cone in the TOILET and use a Suction Type of Method. FIVE or TEN Times and if this Dislodges the Stoppage. Great.
If Not then Use a Toilet Auger. (They Cost around $30.00 at the Home Depot.)
One More thing if the Shower backs up when running water in the Shower drain. It's in The main Drain.
The way to unclog this is to go through a Main Line Clean out. or call a plumber. With Practice is how we all Learn. Make Sure to Use LEATHER GLOVES.
Also another factor is that the toilet's usage has expired or become null & void. Basically it's used up it's lifetime expectancy.
And so you need to replace the toilet.
