How To Clear A Toilet Clog Using A Closet Auger

Ramona’s Plumber, Greg Chick, shows how to clear a soft clog in a toilet using a closet auger. Using this inexpensive tool (about at the home store), and a little practice you can save hundreds of dollars in plumbing service-call costs with each use.

For this video, Greg created a clog in a toilet drain using paper towels. During the unclogging process there is some rust colored water visible in the bowl – That IS rust from the auger itself, not anything nastier that that.

Greg talks about how to diagnose if the plug is in the toilet, or farther down the drain; he talks about the closet auger and demonstrates its use; and how to check for a common reason the toilet clogged in the first place.
