I haven't tried a lubricant yet - but will tonight. I figure by the lenth remaining, that it's stuck about 4' or 5' inside the drainpipe... I'm not sure if the lube will make it that far.


It all depends on the pressure you apply!!! wink.gif

Guys, you are incredible. This is the best XXX Forum on the Net!

Gamavor, how the hell did you read my mind???? We were thinking the same thing! You are the best! Here is mine...

Ok, this post will most likely suffer the faith of the Hippo link, but I just couldn't help myself and share my observation with you. This is by far one of the most hysterical threads ever. laugh.gif And to someone with a mind set for seeking metaphors in every detail it will surely appear very risque. Now I've compiled some of the phrases that has been thrown around in this thread, tell me that I am wrong to see it this way. I didn't fabricate it, it was just there whispering hidden meanings to me. I am ready to receive my warning by the way, the chance I am willing to take to show you the hidden meaning... rolleyes.gif


QUOTE
but I'm pretty good with my hands and can usually figure stuff out...

I was trying to unclog my bathroom sink drain. I plunged after blocking-off the other outlets on the system - the plunging usually works, but not this time. My building was built around the turn of the century, so the plumbing is a bit dodgy


QUOTE
push and pull gently or turn a crank back and forth while gently pulling up. Do not force the auger or you may break the toilet bowl.


QUOTE
Also in my simple thinking I also think some kind of oil may help sliding it out.


QUOTE
have tried the 'gently push and pull' part. I have tried the 'not-gentle-at-all push and pull' technique. I have a felling that I cranked the auger too much, and it has twisted into a knot.


QUOTE
I haven't tried a lubricant yet - but will tonight.


QUOTE
I remember when our toilet flooded because of excessive shower bahaviour


QUOTE
I would consider calling a plumber and getting an estimate on the cost of removing the damm thing and see which way is cheaper.Consider that you have to replace the pipes $$ and time wasted fixing it.
Try the lube first it may work.


QUOTE
I yanked, and I jerked, and then I yanked like there was no tomorrow. And I pulled the stubborn auger out of the trap.
