    Clogged toilet

    What is the best thing to use to un-clog a toilet. I tried a snake and that didn't help. Any ideas? Maybe our resident plumber has a suggestion?

    thx

    A plunger or hot water has always worked for me.

    Plunger and a few big pasta pots full of water to pour into it..raise the water level way up high to the top...creates a lot of weight to flush down. That..and learning how to work a plunger...can beat any clog.

    Tried a cheap toilet auger that didnt work. How did you do that hot water option. Did you have to shot off water to toilet and then what do I need to do?

    thx guys

    Did you use a good auger like this or something else?

    When the water is low in teh bowl just pour a big pot of hot but not boiling water in it. I've never shut off the water to it.

    Stop shoving dead bodies down the toilet and it won't clog!
