Might be fun for a second.
Just try detergent and hot water it will work.Trust me.
Ah that'd be something...
We can understand the intricacies of 19th century novels?
What about those bottles of unblocker you can get - you pour it down the offending sink/toilet - leave it for a bit and then flush the loo.
Tried them... not much joy...
I put half a bottle of enzyme stuff down it... might do the trick. If not then warm water and detergent... and maybe a shower hose.
If I were you I'd be on the phone to a plumber first thing in the morning.
Or someone like Dyna-Rod
Ha ha! you don't really want to solve this problem do you?Who would I rather have handy in an emergency?A plumber or someone or understands the intricacies of 19th century novels?I can read and interpret the novels myself.
I do... spent four days now trying to fix it and about £30 on stuff that doesn't do much of anything.
Only if the blockage is in the U?
It's 5m long
You now need to be VERY careful when using the shower hose. Cover up all naked skin and wear goggles.
We believe this was the cause of our first problem (mentioned earlier!)
plumbing problems are a nightmare!
4 days? maybe you do need a plumber but try what I've suggested first.Good luck.
I was going to suggest a hose or a pressure-washer hose but most people now have collapsible hoses and judging by your reports of previous experiments a pressure washer even without the nozzle might get messy
Thanks for the feedback, suggestions and general unrelated toilet comments... I'll keep you informed how it goes.
We had a blocked loo last year, so we booked a plumber but he said he couldn't make it for three days.
The morning after we rung him, my OH went to the loo completely forgetting it was blocked. Well, it soon came flooding back.
Hopefully down and not up
Same thing happened with my downstairs loo at my house 3 years ago, tried pretty much everything suggested here - mop and plastic bag/bendy thing from B&Q/caustic soda etc all to no avail. Had to call out a plumber in the end and the blockage was actually outside. He removed the manhole cover on the drive and cleared it that way. Was worth every penny.
