Today I dropped half the roller that the toilet paper hangs on. You know - you got the little posts that screw into the wall, and the roller that's made up of 2 halves with a spring in between. I guess all these things have names but heck if I know what they are. Anyway, I was holding one half as the toilet was flushing, and the other dropped down the toilet. I heard a "clink" which is I assume the roller half hitting the ceramic at the trap and - hopefully - lodging there.

So ... my question is whether something this size would fit through the trap. If so, then I guess my only option will be to take the toilet out because I don't want it to go through. If not, I am thinking it may be a lot easier to use the closet auger and try and pull it back. I guess it all hinges on whether I may accidentally push the roll through the trap or not.

Please ... help! Thanks.

your trap could be as big as 2.25 inches. That roller could be gone for good. or clog up the piping somewhere else downstream.

my buddy just flushed a lens from his sunglasses down the toilet. We flushed a few times and it seemed ok so we tried some tp and it definitely is clogged. Can a lens make it past the trap?

I accidentally flush my glasses down the toilet , it felled off my face into the toilet while it was flushing. Is there a way I can still retrieve it?
