  • Backed up toilet rag time

    Never had such torque on My closet auger ! Finally retrieved part of a colored rag.
    flushed good about 5 times then overflowed! Took drum to 4" roof vent ran to street,
    clear. The house cleaners were there before back up. Woman didn't recognize the fabric. Kids say isn't theirs. This My 1st battle with a rag, THEY'RE TOUGH !

    I buy extra general bulb heads and pull the coil out a bit. Works great for rags, pens, and other.

        I would agree until I pulled out a used hypodermic needle! This was in the tank just under the flapper. Near miss on that one. I happened to have my screwdriver (to point with) in my hand and the mgr. was poking his head in and wanted to see what I found...thank God....otherwise I would have used my hands.

          Sounds like they need one of these:


          I had to replace two at a psychiatric facility. I was told "Replace the muffin monsters."
          I nodded my head like I knew what he was talking about.
          Spent the night doing research and got one replaced and rebuilt for spare. They were for chewing up pants and shirts that the residents managed to flush down the toilets. A sight to behold. Tested them with 2 x 4's.
