There's another toilet thread on this usenet group. Try google search
for "clearing toilet jets". And a couple good instruction pages came
Before doing jets, I'd suggest to use a closet auger on your toilet
Here is a not very helpful page about closet augers.
Much better, including a picture illustration of a closet auger in
Directions by Chris:
Unclip the end of the spring from the tube
Pull the crank handle as far up as possible (long shaft comes out of
the tube, and the spring retracts into the tube)
Put the curved end of the tube into the toilet bowl, so the spring
goes into the drain
Crank handle, and slide the shaft into the tube. This sends the spring
into the drain (as illustrated).
Crank handle a dozen or more times after the snake is fully extended.
Flush toilet, and keep cranking while the water is going down. This
rinses the crud down the drain, and also rinses off your snake.
Keep cranking, and pull the handle up towards ceiling, to retract
snake into tube.
Remove tool from bowl.
Slide handle into tube, and reclip the end of the snake onto the tube
near the handle.
The $9 cheapie snake tends to twist and "pretzel" instead of clearing
drains. The $25 Ridgid one is worth every penny.
