In this household, we have two minor problems.

1- The upstairs toilet occasionally starts a siphon-cycle when flushed, with water draining into the bowl at the same rate that it enters the cistern. It's no big deal- just lift the ballcock for a few seconds and you break the siphon-cycle, allowing it to stop churning out water.

2- This household has three women-folk, all of whom put insane quantities of toilet paper down the drains. Occasionally they block the toilet. It's no big deal- I can unblock it in seconds with a refuse sack. I R practical Dad.

Tonight, for the first time, those two events coincided. The first warning was the words "Daddy? Why is water coming through the ceiling?"

We are told that the fastest land animal is the cheetah. It isn't. It's me running for the stop-cock, bellowing like a Viking berzerker with a firecracker up his bumhole.

Hmm. Squelchy carpets.

yuck.

Just out of interest - how do you unblock a toilet with a refuse sack?

Put your arm down into it, so it's like a shoulder-length glove.

Shove hand down into u-bend entry.

Make violent "fisting" action. Job done.
