A clogged trap way in a water closet is a ticklish
problem, so be careful with whatever method you use for cleaning the
drain. Most water closets are made of vitreous china which might crack
if exposed to extremely hot water.
A plunger will normally handle simple toilet clogs.
Another method of cleaning a water closet trap or toilet is the use
of an auger with an adjustable, crank-type handle. Known to plumbers
as a "snake," the spring-steel coil is easily worked past the trap and
down the pipe. A three foot auger is inexpensive and will quickly drill
through most clogs. Use the auger carefully. Careless handling may crack
If the rubber-cupped plunger or the auger does not
clear the toilet, call your plumber.
