    I can have another go at that, but a plumber did try that 1-2 yrs ago. BTW, this has been an ongoing problem, to which our "approach" has been to depend on out 2nd bathroom for the serious stuff.

    This is Eons ago, but instead of pulling it up, you can try taking 2-3 5 Gallon Buckets, Filling them with Water and just doing a *purge fillup/flush* into the bowl.

    I did that eong ago, out of curiousity, and on my intial *dump* of water with a 3gallon bucket of water, I was surpised to see a little tissue paper float back into the bowl when the bowl was empty/clean to begin with. I then proceeded with just a succession of 5 Gallon Inrush Buckets of water, which was like a poor mans jetter....

    This sounds like something I am capable of. Now... if I only knew what an Inrush Bucket is...

    I think he means to dump the water from the five gallon bucket into the bowl from as high as comfortable and as fast as practical. The inrush of water may sweep away any obstructions.
