    I thought clogs were usually deep inside the toilet beyond reach. Am I wrong?

    The plumbers at the airport had some kind of compressed air gadget for unclogging. Blew out a wall one time with too much pressure.

    I don't have any hard stats (sic). There's all kinds. Most I encountered on the job were paper towels stuffed down the bowl.

    Most of the clogs were in the women's bathroom, caused by tampons being flushed down the toilet. This type of thing was passed along to someone with a snake.

    The bathroom of my dreams is going to have a stainless steel commode and no wax ring. They even have some with a water fountain built in. I’m sure some of you already have seen these models.
