Hi,

My toilet was clogged. Do you all have any idea to fix it?

I found some ways on the internet such as hot water + dish soap (tried but didn't work) or baking soda + vinegar (will try it).
But assume if baking soda + vinegar doesn't work so does it any physical tools for help?

Thanks so much.

Ask Grommet, he spends his time in the public toilets a lot.

There is a scene in Trainspotting that I think might lead you to the solution. Or you could just buy a plunger?

But hey, what does Sweden care about it anyway? Just dump it out on your neighbours lawn!

https://ec.europa.eu/commission/presscorner.../en/INF_19_4251

"Waste water: Commission refers SWEDEN to the Court for its failure to treat urban waste water

The European Commission decided to refer Sweden to the Court of Justice of the EU over its failure to ensure that urban waste water from a number of agglomerations receives adequate treatment, as required under EU rules (Council Directive 91/271/EEC). Untreated wastewater can put human health at risk and pollute lakes, rivers, soil and coastal and groundwater. Sweden has failed to ensure that urban waste water is subject to appropriate treatment before it is discharged back into the environment. Although there has been progress towards compliance, Sweden is still failing to meet its obligations under EU law. The Commission decided to open the EU infringement procedure by sending a letter of formal notice to Sweden in January 2010, followed by additional letters sent inSeptember 2015 and April 2017, as well as a reasoned opinion in November 2018. As there is still not full compliance by all the agglomerations in question, the Commission has decided to refer the case to the Court of Justice of the EU. For more information, please refer to the full press release."

Sweden is literally full of shit! Lol!

His toilet "was" clogged. Done deal, problem solved. Next time call a plumber and pay to get it sorted.

Support the little man...

As a serious reply, you can call Avloppsjouren to come out. If you live in a rental apartment they won't charge you they bill the landlord.

You can also try contacting the landlord too by felanm?lan.
