    That tells me you have a object lodged down there that the auger can't get past. If that's the case you must pull the toilet and go in from the bottom. This is a dirty messy job best left to us dirty messy plumbers but if you want to give it a shot click on back for directions. Regards, Tom

    How do you know something fell in the toilet, did you see ot hear something fall? If the auger is curling up you might not be using it correctly. Watch this how to use a toilet auger - Google Videos
