If you have children, you will likely need to remove a toy, toys or another object from the commode or sink at some point during their younger years. At the least, this task is just an unpleasant chore. However, if your child happens to flush the item, there is a bigger problem. Here’s how you can try to resolve the situation. If it doesn’t work immediately, call for plumbing service in Calgary.
Step 1: If the item hasn’t been flushed, pull it out. Sanitize the toy (and yourself).
Step 2: When the offending object has been flushed and even if you don’t know what it is, try using your plunger to bring it back up. If you plunge a few times and the commode flushes correctly, the object may be gone. If there is another backup, go to the next step.
Step 3: If you have a plumber’s snake, use it to try to grab the object in the pipe and retrieve it. If you don’t have a snake, call your plumber. Never attempt to use a wire or cable to get the toy. You could scratch the toilet and damage it.
