I did such a good job telling my grandchildren how to save water that the toilet got plugged up. We then had another meeting about using MORE water.
I think I would much rather dump tanks that unpug the toilet drain lines.

You can use any kind of TP you want. It does not have to be septic safe or RV/Marine. It all dissolves after some relatively short period of time.

Here is some info on dissolve time of a bunch of brands.

Brand...........................................Di ssolving Time in Seconds
(lowest is best)
Charmin Plus 1-Ply..................................9
MD 2-Ply............................................... ....9
Coronet 2-Ply..........................................12
Angel Soft 2-Ply......................................12
Scott 1-Ply..............................................1 7
Soft 'N Gentle 1-Ply ...............................18
Soft Weve 1-Ply.....................................20
Marcal 1-Ply...........................................20
Soft 'N Gentle 2-Ply...............................21
Seventh Generation 2-Ply.....................21
Quilted Northern Super 2-Ply ...............69
Charmin Ultra 2-Ply ..............................77
Cottonelle 1-Ply ....................................96
Charmin 1-Ply .....................................180

The TPs with an Excellent disintegration rating from a Aug 2000 Consumer Report article are:

Albertson's Soft Choice Ultra
Safeway Select Softly Ultra
Quilted Northern Ultra Soft
Quilted Nothern Soft Prints
Target
Kroger
Angel Soft
Charmin Plus with Unscented Natural Aloe
SoftWeve

I understand there is a later consumer Reports study out but I don't have a copy.

1st with a holding tank - water and more water is always better. There really is nothing else that needs to be added.
2nd with a septic tank - taken from people that study them, the government and people that work with them, do NOT use anything in a septic tank. When it is emptied (which it should be every few years anyway) it is already set up with everything it needs to breakdown things. Problems come in when people do things like trying to flush condoms or female products down the toliet, which happens more often than people want to admit.

I think the original point of the post was looking for suggestions for unclogging the toilet.

This is true RR, but is preventing a clog in the first place that far "Off Topic"?

Clay, I would like to see the bargain store brands(Sam's. Costco and Walmart) included in the tests.

Camping World sells a wand that attaches to a garden hose. At a blackwater dump, insert the wand into the toilet and turn the water on. The tank will fill and the pressure of the water will force the TP out along with all else. Takes some time, but it works. Have done it myself.

Seams a heck of a lot easier to prevent all this by a little proactive action than reactive.

Both our DSDP have come with built in flusing fixtures, put the hose on (NOT your potable water one) and turn it on. I've used it a couple times in 9 years, but not because I had any problems. We use Kirkland brand TP.

Sure hope you're not the reason for the 10 rig backup at the dump station and making everyoe wait while you do this.
