My toilet needs a carotid endarterectomy ... or something


This is everything I know about plumbing: Shit flows downhill.
Plumbing does not strike me as being particularly mysterious or complex. Or is it?
Can you compare toilet plumbing to human vasculature? Over the years, can toilets get plaque buildup (or *shudder* whatever the toilet equivalent is) in their arteries?
One of our toilets is a regular plugger, another a periodical plugger and the third (mine) has never plugged in the almost 8 years we've lived here. Until now.
It's now plugged twice in the last two weeks, and there has been no ... how to put this to not offend your delicate sensibilities ... no increase in the volume processed by this particular apparatus.
Is this malady of the vasculature a function of increasing age? Of physical inactivity? Poor diet, perhaps? Genetics?
How do you treat an aging toilet? Maybe I need to flush a baby alligator down there.

Ha ha ha ha!! And you say you don't know anything about science (or plumbing!!).

I agree; toilets are plumbing equivalent of human vasculature!!!

Do you see a Nobel prize for me in the future, Jas? Sadly, probably only plumber's butt...
