How to know if a toilet is blocked?

Most clogged toilets are what are known as “slow drainers.” That is, flush water partially fills the bowl but doesn't rush out and clean away. A gurgling sound coming from other fixtures in your home and bathroom may also be another sign that the toilet may be blocked. A blocked drain changes the liquid-to-air ratios within the drain, causing sewer gases to escape through water seals and vents within the sewer system.
