What Do I Do With A Toilet That Keeps Clogging?

We have two bathrooms, one on the second floor above the other. The top one flushes fairly easily but the bottom one doesn't seem to flush everything down consistently. It does not empty without plunging, which makes me think that my toilet is clogged and/or our pipes need to be rooted out. What should we do?

Unclogging a toilet that is blocked that often may mean that you need to have your main sewer line cleared. To test it, flush the problem toilet five or six times in a row without leaving. If it backs up then you likely have a main line problem and you need a professional to come and clear it out.
