Toilet paper piling up

Not sure why, not using enough flush water maybe? Seems to collect at bottom of tank and work back up pipe. There is about 3 to 3 1/2 inches between what appears to be the bottom of the tank and bottom of vertical pipe from toilet, unless it is the bottom of a 90 and horizontal pipe to the tank.

I was having the same problem. What I do is fill the bowl after #2 and then flush. It eliminated the problem.

Of course maybe we could just use big balls like the Parisians do.

Thanks to all. I suspected that might be it. Trying to be too conservative

Honestly, it makes me throw up in my mouth a little but some people don't flush the paper to avoid problems like this.

Thatís actually fairly common practice around the world. Iíve seen that in a number of countries. Also in Hemingwayís house in Cuba.

FWIW, the waste and FW tanks on a trailer are long skinny tanks. Only about 4 inches deep, 3 feet wide and 6 feet long. So what you are seeing is probably sitting on the tank bottom. Paper won't move around much until you move the trailer. Just keep enough water in the tank to keep the paper from drying out... I recommend using some Calgon or Borax as a wetting agent.
