Have you tried using a toilet snake?
Thank you problem has been resolved.
You can purchase a better plunger for the job. Do a search for toilet plunger on Amazon etc and you'll see several that are shaped differently then the classic toilet plunger.
Thanks problem has been resolved.
Hi Darlene, here's some info I found for you. I hope it is helpful.
Thank you Janice
Here is some info
Some of the things I have done is after the plunger not doing the job, is to pour dish soap around the water rim of the toilet and let it set at least 10 minutes, then flush. If no results, you can try this again.
Another thing to do is get some warmed water in a pail, not too hot because you do not want to melt your wax ring, position the pail of water several feet over the toilet and let the pressure from the stream of water force the clog down and out.
If these fail you, then go for the toilet snake, if no luck, call the plumber. Best to you.
Plunger, then snake, then plumber.
Hello what have you done so far? A plunger is probably the first thing to try.
Tried the plunger, I am not strong enough to stand there & plunge. We are getting a new septic system in the next couple of weeks. So, I am not going to pay a plumber.
Septic systems can be very finicky re: what you can put down them. Have you had your leach field cleaned out? Have you any idea what caused the clog? You may need a plumber if the aforementioned suggestions don't work.
In the future, you may need to be more vigilant about the products used in your home.
Not going to pay a plumber, when in the next couple of weeks we are getting a new system.
I read somewhere to pour hot sudsy water down drain. Use a soap that is septic friendly. repeat until you see results. Hope that helps.
Thank you Laura, I will try this suggestion.

Unclogging a toilet on a septic system usually involves taking care to not use chemicals that can harm the septic system. That said it can still usually be done by ...
I have used vinegar, then baking soda, then boiling water. If you are on a septic system use RidX regularly.
Plunging is the best method. It's a tedious task but if you keep at it, you should be able to move the obstruction. You could also "snake" the toilet but that would involve purchasing or renting a tool.
For the long run, use "green gobbler" products. This is what I've been using for a couple of years. I switch toilets each month and use a different one so that it helps with the pipes all the way to the septic tank. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07WMW6LR4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Once its flushable, I would start using Roebic products to maintain your septic system. They do have an Emergency additive I used once on my client's system to get it working again - saved her the $6,000 the septic guy quoted her. I use their Drain Cleaner down my toliet 2x a year.
Thank you Sharon, I was able to unclog it.
