My son flushed a Dental Care gum packet down the toilet. The packet is about 4" X 2" containing 12 individual pieces of gum. The packet is a combination of plastic and paper. Ever since this occured my toilet flushes slowly. I tried snaking it and it's still the same. Is there some sort of declogger I could use that might break up the gum packet. I have a cesspool and I saw this product called Roebic Main Line Cleaner. Might this do the job or can some suggest some other method. Thanks

I ended up removing the toilet and did not find anything stuck within it. So I'm guessing it's stuck down the drain? I tried to snake the drain as well. I didn't re-install the toilet thinking I'll need to get a professional with a longer powered snake? Or can someone suggest something else?
