There are a couple of things you could try before calling us though. As much as we want to help you, we appreciate that being without a toilet is an unenviable situation.
If the toilet bowl is full or overflowing, bail out some of the water with a plastic bottle or container. Make sure you protect your hands with rubber gloves and wash your hands thoroughly when finished though. Ensure whether the bowl is empty, full or overflowing, you get it so itís half full before trying the next step.
Place the plunger directly over the opening at the bottom of the bowl and push up and down a few times quite firmly. If the blockage is a loose one, the remaining water should now flow freely. If it does, give the plunger another few pushes then add a bucket of water to the bowl and plunge once more. Once the water has run off, flush the toilet as normal.
If that doesnít work and you have or have access to an auger, feed the tip of it down into the drain opening of the toilet. Crank and push with some strength clockwise, until it tightens up, then reverse the direction until it tightens up again. Do this until the auger is as far as it can go.
Pull the handle up to remove it. This may need a little playing to break it free, but it will come up eventually. This will either push the blockage down the drain or pull it back into the bowl. Either way the toilet should now run free.
If neither of these methods work, then Iím afraid youíre going to have to wait for us to arrive!
