Don't even ask how this happened, but the roller the paper is kept on went down the toilette today and I can tell the flow has been messed up because it doesn't flush well anymore.

It's a plastic roller and I have no idea how far it is. I bought a drain cleaning tool and it hasn't helped. I think it's made more to break stuff up, this is hard and plastic. I'm desperate for any ideas before I have to spend a wad on a plumber. Please let me know if you have any ideas.

The TP holder is probably stuck within the toilet........

You can remove the toilet and try to dislodge it.......

Got a ShopVac......?

About the best solution, is to pull the toilet up from the floor (after draining it with a shop vac), then take it outside and turn it upside down (or inside if you want to put down a cardboard box to set it on). Once it is upside down, use an auger to push it backwards through the toilet. Once it is out, reset the toilet. Make sure you use a new supply tube and bowl wax.
