the way to tell if theres an issue, flush toilet paper down the toilet. if it overflows, the sock has causedan issue. if you have a smooth draining toilet, i would not let it go.. this sock will be heavy and not flow down the drain, specially when wet. either call in a plumber or purchase a closet auger from any major hardware store and auger it thru the toilets topside and retrieve this sock -
Unless it stops the pipes up, there is nothing to worry about. It may very well make it's way out of the system on it's own. I can't tell you how many socks/underwear have gone through the pipes in this house. So far, no stop ups. I'm sure they are all in the septic tank somewhere, but I'm not going after them. ;)
It is probably ok. An ankle sock is small. It wouldn't break the toilet, it would clog it up. If you try flushing, and it is clogged , you would overflow the toilet. Why not try filling a bucket of water and slowly pouring into the toilet and watch to see if it starts to gain a flushing action, if so, continue to dump bucket at a faster rate, and then dump right in if confident it is going down. It probably is ok then, go ahead and flush. If it goes down, then great. There is a remote possibility it could get stuck in the sewer past the toilet, but if it does , the toilet would eventually stop flushing, or not go down at all. (after some time). If your toilet is clogged, don't call a plumber, there is a chance he may cost more than if you look up a sewer cleaning company in the phone book. The toilet in either case is not "broken" , so no need for a new one! Good luck. BTW- generally sewer cleaners work all hours of the night and might charge a little more after hours, but not as much as a plumber. Ask for a price on the phone before they come.
it is fine if it is not clogged if it dose just get a plunger or a
it is ok, nothing is gonig to happen
