Is there a way to unclog a toilet that is clogged by a mop? without killing
the tubing? I have tried a draino product that cautioned me to limit usage
to under 2 times, but I have tried the product twice and the toilet is still
clogged. This is an emergency, so please help quick.
First, I'm an amateur. I would say that you shouldn't have used
chemicals as you did. Nothing out there is going to eat a mop up.
Now, if the any concentration is there yet, it will make fixing it
I think that this one is going to require a mechanical method to get
the clog opened. If the water has flowed out and you're working with
clear water I'd try a closet auger, or failing that, reach in to the
trap and see if you can pull it out by hand, preferably gloved.
Other than that, the only thing I might try would be to take the
toilet up and get the clog out that way. You'd have to get a wax
Again, I am an amateur.
There's a tool called a "closet auger" that might be of help. If it's a
sponge mop head or the traditional type, it should work very well. This is
only true if it's actually caught in the toilet itself. If it somehow made
it down the soil pipe, you might need a pro. If not, the toilet will have to
be taken up.
It turned out that I had to get a professional to do it. The thing is he
used a closet auger, just like the one I bought :(, except the one I bought
was to hard to bend around the corner. Thanks for all the help.
