I feel inconvenienced and proud all at once. :cool: I keep meaning to buy a plunger but forget when I don't need one "right now". Usually borrow the one the management staff of my building have in their employee washroom, but it's locked and there's no employees about. Tried hot water pour (that works sometimes) but it didn't work today. I know everybody is thrilled that I shared that and you're all quite welcome. :) The employees gotta show up sometime .. at least I won't need to go for a while.

Edit: It's unclogged now. Thank-you everyone for your comments and suggestions. :)

I'm sure Brown will be here soon with a remedy. He has a bunch of experience in this field. :D

That is so funny, I am very proud of you too!!

I was at a friend's house for the weekend and happened to do the same thing while she was out. I tried to remedy the situation to no avail. I finally ran out of time and left for the airport, leaving the mess for her to clean up. On the way to the airport I called her at work and told her I'd left her a gift at the house:))eek:))hil:)

I'm just so glad she's a female!!

I hope you did not put any feminine hygiene products down there... those things make tom brown look like an amateur when it comes to blocking drains...


Oh yeah, I ended a marage one time by uncloging a drain... lets just say it was not her brand. :|err

Good one Cookie! hil:) I must remind you the Guru "incident" was a rumor started by the man himself. The above actually happened and it was pretty darn funny.:D
Of course the "Guru incident" is only a rumor...as far as the clogging of the toilet scenario, can't say I've done it myself...so right on girl you take pride in clogging that toliet...(note to self: don't let photochick use my toilet) :D

You win! LMFAO! :D :D :D That's great!

No feminine hygiene products were involved in the clogging of the toilet in question - it was just my shit.

Did I ever tell you about the time Tom Brown visited Rex Marine... :))eek:))

Well I guess not on this forum. I think I'll just skip it.


FM if it's shit it may soften and dissolve on its own to the point it clears within a day or so. If you are constipated like Brown tho it could take much longer. I swear that guy shits golf balls. That said however if its too much paper all wadded up you will likely not have this lucky option of self dissolution and will likely have to resort to the mighty plunger.

Now the correct way to plunge (do not inquire how I learned this): Insert the plunger sideways as much as possible to get the air bubble out. Plunge using a very quick series of strokes, basically shockwaving the stuck mass into movement. Long slow strokes generally are not as effective and sometimes will not clear a tough clog. The quick stroke method (3-4 per second) for a sustained period of a few seconds normally will dislodge all but the most stubborn clogs. I would classify the Brown incident in the "extreme stubborn" category. Power tools became necessary to dislodge the severe stoppage he left in his wake. Along with some paint, floor tile...oh nevermind.

Nope it's not paper - that stuff disintegrated and snuck past the clog when I poured the hot water but the solid matter isn't budging. Not constipated either not sure why it got stuck. ... I just tried to flush it again - bowl fills up and drains slowly but the logs just stay there. One thing seems weird though - it doesn't stink in my bathroom. I'm not immune to my own stink when there is one, either. Weird. :confused: Hopefully you're right and it'll just dissolve more given more time. Thanks for the plunging tips, Mike - guess I'll be shopping tomorrow. :D

Sounds like just a case of wedge turds. This happens when a group of turds of the proper shape and size wedge themselves in the outlet pipe. If the water is passing by it likely will be an easy plunge job, nothing like the Tom Brown scenario.

It won't stink unless the water in the toilet is brown or the turds are actually exposed. Relatively clear water acts as in insulator to stink.

Rexone = Proud owner of 2 new Elger Titans, yet to be clogged. (Tom, lose my address).

did you turn the water off behind the bowl? wooden spoon is one thing, how about a wire clothes hanger,,, break that crap up and flush again, as it starts to move then turn water back on from behind bowl...

I don't have one I'm willing to throw away. I did try using an old popsicle stick when the water level went low enough; it was ... ineffectual at best. :D

No need to turn off the water valve - there's no threat of overflow it's just the solid stuff that won't go down; the water drains fine after each flush.

In my best (which isn't saying much) Joan Crawford crazed voice, "NO WIRE HANGERS!!!" ... I don't keep wire hangers. Just as well I have neither the tools nor the finger/hand strength to untwist one.
