I have a new cloakroom toilet but since it was fitted it

I have a new cloakroom toilet but since it was fitted it keeps blocking. It has a floor flange and the drain is 1 meter from the house, we have unblocked it several times but it keeps blocking up. I did see online that soe of the close coupled toilets from China have a smaller pipe. Could this be the issue?JA: What's the brand and model of your toilet? How old is it?Customer: it is 2 weeks old, I bought it from Soak.com, it was a Florence toilet. I did call them and they were happy to refund me but I am not sure getting another different type will fix the issue. The old toilet did have a bigger waster than this one.JA: How long has this been going on with your toilet? What have you tried so far?Customer: Since it was fitted. We have cleared the blockage several times. The toilet has not been used any different than the other one. I have tried several times over the last two days to clear it from inside the house with no success. (Hot water and soap, plunger - although not very successful as the waste is smaller.)JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: My husband clears it from the drain with a vacuum but he is away at the moment and I can't lift the drain
