  • paraffin

    now this is a first. called to a house with a slow flushing toilet and nothing else going on. no backup into shower, sink drains fine. closet auger gets about 2/3s through the siphon and catches on something. auger begins to bind. remove the toilet and there is a pink mass of something just out of reach. can't get to it with tongs or a bent wire hook. drag it outside, put it up on blocks, pour a bucket of water into the bowl and it flushes like a champ. on the ground is 2 pieces of a very hard paraffin like substance. should have taken pictures but i was too dirty to grab my phone. when the toilet was reset i asked about the stuff and the homeowner said he tossed it down the hill into the bush.

    i've said nothing amazes me any more and then something like this happens
    In the never ending struggle to keep the water flowing.... The Poo Poo Cowboy rides again!!!
