Seldom used it for #1.
That is still a huge amount of floss for any toilet. Has anyone else here
had a floss snake ever anywhere? This is the first I have seen, and I am
suspect by just the volume of material. That's enough to wear out about
twenty flushing mechanisms.

I don't know. I'll ask my wife.
Seems they could have wrapped it in toilet paper.
Probably didn't bring their purse in there with them, and wanted to
Don't have that much "strange" company anyway.
Anybody family knows better.
"Whatever goes in this toilet that's not soft enough to go through the

I'm wondering if it's really all floss.
Some of those threads look a little long maybe? I break off about 8
inches at a time, I'd guess.
But mainly, how did it get there? This is the basement toilet, which
you don't use because it clogs. So that suggests you don't put floss
But we know it's not the main line, because your other toilets don't
clog. So they are not flowing past there. You must put the floss
down your upstairs toilets, and it should go right past the basement
lateral and into the municipal sewer.
What am I missing here?
Okay, makes sense. I guess they could twist up into a rope.
But still, how do they get into a seldom used and often clogging
toilet line, when the commonly used and not clogging toilet lines
don't have the floss? The place you found the beast can't be the main
trunk, it must be a lateral.
We had a tenent once who was upset at us because we expected him to
pay his rent. Before he left, he took a ball, squeezed out all the
air and flushed it. It was just the right size to reinflate and stop
the flow into the septic tank.
Sorry, I don't have any pics but your story reminded me of that.
