Have cleared many toilet clogs with the closet auger. And have found in some cases foreign objects lodged in the toilet that the auger would not break up or dislodge. But the most recent, not in my residence, is a paper clog that the auger would not break up nor dislodge. A 3-year old had used the toilet. The auger was moved through the clog (nature of clog unknown at that moment) at least 10 times without results. Removing the toilet revealed a wad of paper much larger than a man's fist stuck near the outlet of the toilet. Pliers pulled it out. Any particular style of closet auger or technique that might have had better results? But all the trouble for that family that resulted from this incident will certainly motivate them to "hold a school" for that child.
