Question by Hermie: How do I unclog a toilet when the old traditional red rubber plunger isn’t working?
I’m pretty sure it was clogged as a result of wadded up paper towels being flushed down, though, I can’t know for sure because I wasn’t at the “scene of the crime.” Is there a product like a Liquid Plumr for toilets out there? From what I read, such unclogging gels are not for use in toilets. Any recommendations?

You need a toilet auger. They are relatively inexpensive. Certainly a fraction of what you’d pay a plumber. It consists of a flexible spring coil that runs through a tubular handle with a hand crank at the end. You place the flexible end in the toilet, (right in the water) push it in as far as it will go, and then turn the crank while continuing to apply pressure. It will basically drill a hole through the wad of paper towels, and clear the clog. Available at any hardware store. Probably less than $ 20

Try dishwasher tablets or liquid. People who use recycled water systems attach their dishwasher drainage to these systems to stop blockages

Ross Nanotechnology Corporation presents NeverWet, a new line of consumer products created with their patent-pending Nanotech coating that repels water. Its first product is the Clear-n-Clean Plunger. Unlike traditional plungers, the Clear-n-Clean Plunger is superhydrophobic it never gets wet, and it repels virtually all germs and bacteria from its surface.
Keeping your family safe from germs is a major concern in every household. E-Coli, salmonella, stomach flu and SARS are just a few of the dangerous bacteria found in toilet water. Traditional plungers dipped in toilet bowl water pick up millions of these germs, drip them all over the bathroom floor, and create a hazardous object in your home. By applying the NeverWet Nanotech coating to the Clear-n-Clean Plunger , laboratory tests have shown virtually no bacteria can grow on the plunger. And because the plunger stays dry, contaminated water cant drip onto other surfaces, keeping your bathroom clean and your family safe.
Its Nanotech coating prevents water from ever touching the surface of the plunger. The unpleasant task of unclogging toilets just became a little easier, said Dan Hobson, Ross Technology CEO.
Ross Nanotechnology Corporation has invested millions in research and development into the material science of Nanotechnology. We can use NeverWet coating on any surface where water or ice is a problem, the surface always stays dry. Water rolls off the coating in a manner similar to mercury rolling on a countertop. said Vinod K. Sikka, PhD, Ross Technology Corporation’s Director of Research.
This patent-pending NeverWet coating could be used for the protection of steel products, like bridges, power lines and structures keeping water and ice off their surfaces and keeping them immune to rust, notes Ross Technology President, Andrew Jones. This major R&D investment has also opened the door for a line of reasonably priced consumer products. Ross Nanotechnology is planning a series of consumer items that will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of everyday household chores.
Ross Nanotechnology Corporation is a subsidiary of Ross Technology Corp., a materials science company established in 1962 and located in Lancaster, PA. For more information, visit http://www.neverwet.com or contact Andrew Jones at ajones(at)neverwet(dot)com.
