Hey guys update on the clogged toilet I still haven't dealt with it. Poured in a gallon of detergent like three days ago and it looks like it busted the clot. Scared to flush. Scared to plunge or scoop the shit out (ew what if it splashes me)

For fucks sakes. Man the fuck up anon and plunge that fucker down

Why is American plumbing so shit?

>>1282172
With the laundry detergent like I suggested, it kinda does fix itself...
>>
>>1282250
Because these days they always want everything fast and cheap so they use shitter pipes that are too narrow and build houses that look expensive but only last a decade or two since every part you can't see (like the plumbing) is made of bullshit.
>>
>>1282285
WRONG
product production is highly calculated. they do it because making things juuuuuust a little too shitty and undurable, (but not SO bad that you never buy it again) they can resell products over and over again

>Because they are in the shadow of the British who wrote the book on plumbing, and invented almost every single aspect of engineering during the industrial revloution.

However for some bizzare reason they aswell as the rest of the world think they can cut corners to save time and money, when in reality you just create more hassle by over engineering things costing more time and money in the long run when it goes tits up.
Whilst also complety decimating the industry of its sense of skill so they can get any old unqualified monkey with a spanner in and pay them next to peanuts!

>inb4 not that im saying were any better as the rest of the world has rubbed off on us over the years by introducing all this bollocks and us copying it be it:
>plastic push fit pipe and fittings.
>crimp fittings
>Victaulic
>Plastic drainage
>Strap on boss drilled fittings for drainage
>Plastic duct work
>and even pipe that is secured to the celing with sticky pads that have a loop for a zip tie to secure!

>>and even pipe that is secured to the celing with sticky pads that have a loop for a zip tie to secure!

Please tell me you're kidding.
>>
>>1282250
Because everything is made to maximize profits. That means making as cheap as possible and selling for as much as possible.
>>
>>1282414
You can actually pay for better pipe and fittings, and work, but residential customer would rather buy the cheaper stuff.
>>
>>1282250
Because former president George H. W. Bush forced everyone to buy shit toilets that don't flush shit right.
>>
>>1282285
No. The plumbing code calls for pipes that are plenty big enough and modern PVC pipe lasts longer than cast iron or copper. The problem is the lowflow toilets that Dubya's dad mandated.
>>
>>1282415
Of course but that’s rarely a real option. Developers will never spend more then the bare minimum. If you actually want a decently built house you have to be directly involved in the design which is pretty rare

I wish I was but thats the reailty of "house bashing"in todays construction industry its as rough as anything and is no longer concerened about quality they only want it done quick and cheap the same can be applied to every trade and 90% of domestic side of the industry.

Hence I try and only work on industial, commerical, Nuclear and Military instailations they dont put up with any old tripe and always do things the prim and propper way; and you wont get any unqualified chancers putting wages down as its heavly regulated, and even if one were to slip through the net im sure the sight of a plant room the size of a football pitch would be enough to make them run a mile and never come back.

A welder friend of mine said that he enjoys working on parts for oilrigs. There was a pipeline for a tank that had four pipes to it. One of the pipes is going to be used ONCE to pour some weight in it, the other three are spares if this one doesn't happen to work once. Sounds incredible but I can imagine what the pricetag for a nonfunctioning pipe out at sea might be so it's cheaper to build redundancy on land. It was some important weight that is absolutely crucial for the right orientation for the rig... Interesting stuff.

Try living in a country where you can't flush toilet paper down toilet.

At least my own current toilet issues isn't that it's clogged. It's that I think I fucked it up in some ways more trying to fix it because I needed to replace parts inside of it. Ugh this thing is making me crazy. Fix this part and then shit over here wants to leak or start moving a bunch or this part wont screw on the water line right so I need a different part or something . Such a giant pain in the ass. At least I can kind of use it if I manually fill it but fuck this I'm taking a break.

when plunging don't try pushing the plunger all the way down, you just barely push it down and move it rapidly slightly up and down like fapping, not jokeing, then lift the plunger and the clog should have been broken up allowing the toilet to drain

holy fuck this thread is still here???

well so is my toilet clog. i flushed it again, thinking the clog had busted after THREE gallons of detergent. it hadnt. it flooded the bathroom. and not only did it flood the bathroom with a flush, i broke part of the toilet and the water wouldnt shut off for like a minute and a half.

my plunger is the wrong shape for the toilet so i just threw the plunger away. coat hanger was useless. it looks like all the shit FINALLY drained today so im gonna pour hot soap in tomorrow and see if it goes down

>>1284897
i ate a lot of food. and detergent. and paper.

Wtf Anon why was this better than just getting a plunger trying to sift as much as possible from the top and calling a plumber/landlord. Shitting in a bag is just as low as you can go. Could have shit at public tolite and in the shower waffle stomp that.

Jesus. Do what I do since they put in low flow tolite - flush before putting tolite paper in and if it's a really big shit flush as you go. Damn Anon.
>>
>>1291626
>holy fuck this thread is still here???
>well so is my toilet clog.

Stop pouring fucking soap into the toilet. That will not work. Soap is for grease clogs in countries where you can't get sodium hydroxide. It will do fuck-all for shit. It's the wrong tool for the job.

Go rent or buy a toilet snake. Put an electrical tape flag on it 4 feet from the end. Insert into toilet, rotate and advance the tool. Rotate and extract the tool. Stop rotating when you get to your piece of electrical tape. Repeat, in-and-out-and-in-and-out. This will break up the clog. Add water from a bucket, and watch the shit go down. Leave the snake in, so it washes the shit off the snake. Repeat until the bowl isn't nasty. Repeat some more until the snake is clean-er. Pull it out and put it in a trash bag. Go hose it off in the back yard. Then fix your fill valve and you have a fixed toilet.

If you've grown accustomed to the shit smell and don't mind working with human filth then consider taking a position as a helper for a plumber. A couple of years to learn the ropes and an exam is all you need to be a licensed plumber in some states.

Why the electrical tape flag? What's 4 feet in?

>>1291862
okay im smoking weed in bed ill post in a few

>>1291869
if i left the house to get a plunger id have to clean the bathroom, then myself, then wash some clothes, and thatll take like 5 fucking hours and id rather just post online

>>1291870
it did work- all the shit is suddenly gone. there's some sludge in the bottom but the water is now clear.
i have lime but id rather not blow up my toilet

it appears to have resolved itself so im gonna pour in the hot soap to make sure it goes down and then clean my toilet

1. Don't flush - fill with water from shower head on hottest setting.
2. Temporarily seal the toilet with a ring of silicone caulk and a sheet of polycarbonate and put something heavy on top then flush. Japs made a disposable film version but I wouldn't trust it.

Dood, why THE FUCK would you think detergent would break up a clog In a toilet.
Do not use a plunger on a toilet clog unless you really want to fuck things up. 70% of the time all they do is pack the clog tighter.

You need to buy a toilet auger and slowly work it back and forth through the clog to get water to start carrying away bits of the clogging material.

Because apparently owning a toilet that is less efficient but can literally flush a pound of clay down a toilet is a bigger priority than flushing six times because I don't eat a high-fiber diet

Seriously the moment I buy a house next year I'm putting in a toilet that's strong enough to grind an actual brick into flushable dust with water pressure alone. I'm sick of taking a dump in 3 minutes and spending 15 minutes plunging and flushing the fucking 10 year old filthy toilet that has a reservoir so tiny it just spins my turd in a circle before it's empty.
>>
>>1282131
I've got a plunging tip.
Press the plunger all the way down, then instead of letting it fully reset, do really fast and short plunging thrusts.
You want maybe a total of one inch of movement.
Do it as fast as you can, don't worry there will be no splashing at all as long as you keep your thrusts short.
Think of it like how rabbits fuck. Short and fast thrusts.
>>
>>1282131
that looks fairly similar to the toilets at McDonalds
but its cleaner than McDonalds and more water
one of my brothers used to work there
one time there was this music festival a few miles away and the tirlet was seriously filled to the top with shit and mounded over the top like someone had to squat over it and not sit because the shit was already up to the top

regret not taking pictures
