    By the looks of that caravan (BMV deal right there ;)) this was filmed in elizabeth :D

    But toilet unblocking is a serious business and positive many landlords have been ripped off in this department :cool:
    the best way to unblock a toilet or trap is with a mop. the old school classic mop, not those high tec fancy ones. And just ram it down
    Same goes for a sewer blockage just fill the pipes with water and drive it down the IO! works a treat ;)

    Mop heads- Lost count of the ones we had to clear from drains after they got sucked off the handle.:D

    Bucket of water tipped from chest height usually does the trick. No need to get the mop involved.

    That's a minor block. Try some liquid hand soap. The mop takes on lego and barbie doll blockages!
