Hi Carl:
The use of “balled” toilet paper could definitely clog the toilet. It really depends on the water pressure and how much toilet paper you are using. As long as they are not flush-able wipes and are regular toilet paper, you should be fine flushing it. You may have an underlining issue with your toilet line if you are continuously having clogs, you may want to have a plumber run a sewer camera to check the lines.
