What is clogging the toilet???

Okay, actually, at this point I know what is clogging the toilet but for about a week we did not!  Every night Allan would plunge the thing out and every morning we couldn’t use it because it would start to overflow.  Not a lotta fun I must say.  And being down to one crapper in a house with 5 people who use the thing on a regular basis plus 2 littles that I was trying to get to use the thing on a regular basis, well it was just crappy (yep, pun intended!).

So Allan finally decided to take it apart and find out what the problem was.  He got the potty off the plumbing and determined there was no clog in the pipes.  It must be in the throne itself.  Let’s check.

Turns out, this is an interesting project so Daddy got some “helpers”.

And then, the source of the clog was discovered!  (And will be revealed in the next post, hee hee.)  It would NOT come out.  One of the helpers was even called in to, well, help.

The helper was less than excited but bless her heart, she did it.  Hopefully, the next post will also show a newly re-installed family can :).
