Astronauts deal with flooded toilet in orbit
Everyday millions of people face clogged sewers and drains on the planet Earth. Almost all of those people know that unclogging the sewer line is not rocket science, but recently rocket scientists who happened to be in orbit faced a problem with their toilet. We can only speculate what clogged the toilet on a space shuttle, but whatever clogged the toilet, it is another proof that a crowded toilet is bound to get clogged even if it is a space toilet. Apparently the space station is over crowded and the toilet bowl could not handle the extra traffic.
(AP) — “The bathroom lines at the already crowded space shuttle and space station complex got a lot longer Sunday because of a flooded toilet. One of two commodes aboard the international space station malfunctioned, right in the middle of complicated robotic work being conducted by the two crews. The pump separator apparently flooded.”
We are offering free service to the international space station, our only requirement is that we have to be provided with transportation and accommodation at the job site.
Sewer Clog results in major damage if not taken care of immediately. In many instances a home owner has to deal with a basement flooded along with a clogged sewer. Most of the time a sewer backs up without any warning and the clog is seen as a surprise by the home owner. To avoid these unpleasant surprises a home owner can take preemptive measures, such as:
- Avoid pouring grease in the drains
- Avoid flushing napkins, paper towels and other sanitary items
- Get the sewer line electrically cleaned to cut tree roots grown in the sewer line
- Make sure you have easy access to your house trap
Can a toilet cause a clog in a sewer pipe?
Toilets use a lot of water and many times certain items are flushed down the toilet that can end up clogging the main sewer line. This is not the most common reason why sewers get clogged. Sewer clogs occur due to many reasons and toilet bowls can be blamed about 10% of time according to our mechanics in the field.
Most of the times toilets get clogged due to paper products and when a clogged toilet is unclogged the clog moves down the line and may result in a sewer clog. Paper towels, disposable and cloth diapers and feminine products cause many problems in the sewer main. These products do not deteriorate quickly. They should be disposed of in the garbage.
You might have heard of rats coming out of toilet bowls and sewer lines but might not have seen a rat coming out of a bowl. Here are 10 videos of rats coming out a toilet or a sewer line.
10) Rat coming out of the toilet and slipped right out.

2) Another rat crawled up a toilet.
1) This is not a classic rat in toilet video but this is something not many people might have seen before….
All the videos were compiled because many customers sent us emails asking whether rats really do crawl up toilets. Though it is not that common, but yes, rats do indeed crawl up the sewer line and can also crawl into a toilet bowl. Our mechanics have encountered numerous jobs where they found rats in the sewer line but almost always they found dead rats.
