toilet clogs easily

It's pretty easy to stop up the toilet. It gets plenty of water and a good flush normally, but sometimes it will get clogged up and we have to use a plunger to get it working again. Any ideas?

you may want to run a closet auger into it a few times in case something is clogged in it.,once had one that would flush water but not solids, had a pencil stuck in it,once a toy. clean the holes under the rim out with a nail or screw, make sure the vent pipe on roof is open by running water into it with hose.

Do you have a septic tank or are you on "city" sewage?
If you have your own tank, when was the last time you had it pumped out?

That's the right things to consider. Might also want to check vent pipes, too, look for bird's nests or other clogs.

Do you have small children? If so you might have a small toy stuck in it. If something is stuck in the p trap of toilet you probably won't be able to get it out. Might be time for a new one.

Try removing the toilet and look for anything stuck at the discharge outlet on the bottom. Our kids threw a round metal lid from a can of peanuts in there once. It usually stayed in the vertical 'open' position - but every so often would flip closed.
Removing it was a ...gagging.. experience.
