“Many chokes are caused by people flushing things down the toilet that are not intended for it. Never flush paper towels, feminine napkins, condoms, or anything other than toilet paper down the toilet.”
It may not be fully choked, but it is disgusting to see waste on the top of the pair of water, which refuses to subside in the next ten seconds after flushing.
After pumping the water with the pumper, things got better but it is obvious something is still there, ready to create a massive flood in the toilet any time.
Has a snake crawled up and got struck down there? Who on earth would be so dumb to dump things other than toilet papers into the toilet bowl?
