    I think it would be interesting...

    ...to know how well that adhesive ages while sitting on a shelf.  There's quite a potential for "explosive" results if it fails while the product is in use, with substantial lateral dispersion of "stuff."



    Traditional plungers seem more than adequate.  I'd not be inclined to purchase this new widget, but would probably find the late-night TV ad for it amusing.  :)

    Some of mine:

    I promise you that the product will NOT ever clear some of mine. Only a toilet auger will do.

    There's an episode of Mythbusters around now on this topic, About exploding toilets.

    Let the buyer beware.

    Adhesive and Pressure

    From the manufacturer:

    The Adhesive has been specially developed for adhering to ceramics and is incredibly good.

    The issue of pressure is a false one. Condiser that the pressure is created by flushing the toilet, and the gravity force is less than 1 foot. The pressure is created when pushing this down, and in this scenario if correctly fixed with no leaks it will work fine.

    I will upload a picture of a man standing on the Film. It is brilliant.

    We use wash down pans in Europe, not Syphonic as common in older systems in the USA. What the pressure would do to the symphonic seal I am not sure.

    It is very very clever. Do you Pongtu, we sure do!

    Thanks for the valuable feedback.

    Interesting

    Interesting, I doubt most American consumers would have the patience or know-how to read the instructions (even if they were in English) and operate. Even my wife knows how to use a plunger. If the plunger doesn't get it I turn to the Ridgid extendable closet auger.



    As well, if the pressure did not clear the blockage the black water would push up into the tank.

    JMHO,

    A solution....

    This looks like a solution looking for a problem.



    Anyone who has stepped in a dogturd with bare feet would be disinclined to try this one.



    I think I will stick with the plunger.

    May not work

    Unlike English toilets, our domestic varieties have a separate passage (I believe) up to the ball-cock in the tank, which allows the trap to fill after a flush.

    I am sure this will prevent any pressure from being applied to the blockage. Most of the time it is the suction stroke which pulls the debris up enough to loosen it.

    This device follows the arrangement of a well-known English practical joke, wherein some clear plastic sandwich wrap is stretched across the porcelain bowl. The next user is in for an unpleasant surprise.--NBC
