What to do in the event of a choke toilet bowl?
When face with a choke toilet bowl, one of the most common reaction is to just flush the bowl again. We say stay calm. Do not flush the toilet bowl over and over again as this would just cause the water to overflow out of the bowl. You can attempt to clear the bowl if you wish using items bought off the shelves from say NTUC or other supermarket. Most of them do carry the basic items such as a plunger and chemicals (which should be used with caution if you are unfamiliar).
