If your standard plunger or hand snake just won't handle your drain problem, then you still have other tools to use that will clear your pipes. For the toilet, consider a long handled closet auger. A long handled closet auger is a tool much like its name. You use an extended handle with a wire to get through and break obstructions in your toilet. If you're looking for still more tools to clear your pipes, consider a power snake. A motorized version of the hand snake, a power snake is a larger drain cleaning tool which will allow you to reach farther and give you more control.
