I just accidentally knocked a bunch of stuff out of the cabinet over our toilet. I thought I picked up everything, flushed the toilet and heard an odd *tink*. That's when I realized I didn't have my bottle of clear nail polish. It went down the drain. I tried plunging, gave the thing a couple more flushes... nothing. This is an old house, with old plumbing. Anyone know a plumber? Is there anything I can or should do short of calling a plumber if the thing backs up?

@#$%it!!!

Do you have access to one of those snake thingies?? You can use it to push it threw. Or maybe try an old coat hanger?? Just trying to think of things to help out..

That I am aware of...............

I've had marbles, hot wheels cars, legos, a barbie head and an entire roll of toliet paper get flushed.

Probably lots more stuff beyond what actually belongs in the toliet that I don't know about.

I've always gone with the..........

wait and see what the future holds!!!!
method.


So far I haven't had to call a plumber for problems related to anything flushed and we've been in this house for 13 years. I've fished things out that got STUCK and clogged the toliet, but if it makes it down the hatch

so far (knock on wood) it's been ok. By the way, if your cell phone gets flushed, even if you get it back, it's dead.

My guess is that it will be ok. Septic? It'll make it to the field and sit in the tank until you have it sucked. City sewage? No problem, you can't clog their pipes! My guess is it went through your pipes ok.

This isn't all that helpful but my initial thought when I read the topic was "I won't be admitting it to Harvey"

My hubby works for the DPW around here and he's found some crazy things in the sewer pumps! I'd think as long as your toilets not stopped up you'll be fine. But keep an eye and if things start to go slow or stop call a plumber.

Here are a few of the things he's found! Hehehehe!

Underware

shirts

cash

roserery(sp?)

plastic silverware

pot plant

string

neclaces

nylons

soxs

misc toys... mostly action figures!

YUCK!!!!

I'm guessing its heavy enough it'll just sit in the S bend of the pipes. Unless you have way high water pressure, I don't think it'll move. I'm guesig you'll hear a clinking sound every once in a while until its settled.

Thanks, everyone. So far... so good. Jill, I definitely won't be admitting anything. LOL
