At times my bathroom toilet becomes plugged. After using a plunger several times it opens up for a short time. I suspect perhaps a toothbrush is caught inthe upper part of the trap. I worked for a plumber 3 years so I know a fair amount about plumbing.
I removed the stool and using a plumbers snake with a small hook on the end tried to get it out(whatever it my be). I caught something at one time but could not budge it. I tried going in from both ends. If it is a toothbrush cuught in the upper part of the trap, other than replacing the entire stool is there anything I can do to get it dislodged?
