I have an european toilet (Porcher) and it has an unusual bowl geometry.
Instead of the typical sloped towards the bottom of the bowl, it slopes to a
rectangular shape then the rectangle goes down 3 to 4 inches to the hole at
the bottom then to the goose neck part of the toilet.
This means when things get stucked, I cannot use a normal plunger as the
largest plunger I can get, does not cover the size of this rectangle
opening, so when I plunge, the water just rushed out of the sliver of space
the plunger cannot really "hug" tight to.
Then I tried one of those accordian style plunger. That can reach all the
way to the bottom of the hole, and I thought that would work, but no, the
handle at the top of the accordian contraption is not "sealed", so when I
pushed down on this accordian thingie, the air or water leaks out of the
place where the handle attached to it at the top, so this drastically
reduces the effect it has.
So I have been using this 3' long hand snake. But it's a nasty thing to
store, and it gets rusted easily after a month pretty much have to get
another one. I rather use a plunger if I can find one that is usable.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
