Turbo Snake

This a very clever gizmo.

It wiggles it’s way down your plug holes and gathers up all the hair and detritus that restricts your flow. Anything that helps with restricted flow has got to be good!

You’ll notice however that it’s still in it’s packet. There is a very good reason for this.

I put in the plumbing in the Cliff Top Residence and made sure that there was proper access to all problem areas …… *pats self on back*.

However the apartment in Portugal is a completely different kettle of fish. The shower there is a particular problem. I have managed to get copious quantities of hair and sand out of the drains there – long dark straight hair and short grey curly hair – but I know there are more goodies to get out.

The Turbo Snake is the tool for the job! …… so later on this year, it will be going on an extended holiday and will have the opportunity to fulfil it’s destiny ….. I can hardly wait!

Many thanks to JML and Fuel My Blog for providing me with a solution to my bad-flow problem.

    I could do with one of those – since I turned into Wurzel Gummage, there’s hair everywhere!

    I’m sure Lo’TG has warned you about shaving the palms of your hands in the shower.

    daddyp replied:

    I’ll take that as a sign ……

    daddyp I don’t want to ever have to think about your restricted flow again!

    daddyp replied:

    …… and coming from a nurse as well ….. my old age looks leak …. I mean bleak …….

    sledpress replied:

    I had a nurse client whose husband had so many incidents of restricted flow she could tell the ER orderlies his catheter size…

    I’ve always liked the thought of an elderly Heathcliff running over the moors shouting “Catheter!! Catheter!!!!”

    I want to see hair clumps!

    daddyp replied:

    Hello Pixie!!!! …… Rome in August!! – blimey it’ll be hot …… I know, shave your head for coooooolth and then you can have your own hair clumps ……..

    Pixie replied:

    Good plan!! 😀 Although I’d rather see someone else’s manky hair. Have you seen the film ‘the ring’ where she get sucked into the well and is writhing around in all that excess hair? I want results like that before I’ll commit to a product that professes to be the ‘turbo snake’.

    daddyp replied:

    Note to self ……. avoid ‘The Ring’ ….. sounds scary ……

    hope it’s not the venomous type. that’d be a bad snake to have in the shower!

    DaddyP, I didn’t realize you were having drainage problems when you went on holiday…perhaps you should see a doc rather than using a snake…

    daddyp replied:

    It isn’t me!!! ….. it’s Portuguese plumbing! …… no really ……. I’m fine …… in many ways …..

    daddyp replied:

    *thinks* …. ‘doc’ isn’t Portuguese for ‘plumber’ is it? ….. *looks for dictionary*

    Carrie replied:

    Perhaps it is Portuguese for plumbing…let me know when you find out 😉

    daddyp replied:

    I could be gone some time ……. better go to the loo first …….

    Luckily they went with marketing this rather than the Placid Plunger. Does it need a mouse dropped in the drain to be primed to work?

    daddyp replied:

    Oooo – popping mice down drains ….. now that does sound fun!!!!

    I can think of another job for your turbo snake but it would be too crass to write here. Ever see those SNL sketches, “Appalachian Emergency Room?” ‘Nough said.


    daddyp replied:

    No I haven’t …… but I like the script …… my sort of level.

    Enjoyed the fireworks then!!!?! WEE ….. WHIZZZZZ …… BANG!!!!!!!

    It always amazes me how, when there are nifty biological products full of hard-working enzymes that are thrilled to eat up all the bits of hair and detritus that plugs up your hole and restricts your flow… that men would always rather do it the hard way and have to use their snake.

    Methinks they just like being able to boast about having a ‘turbo charged’ one.

    Goddesses on the other hand, would rather sprinkle enzymes and then go get a massage whilst the little buggers feast, but please don’t let this information prevent you from working harder than you have to.


    daddyp replied:

    …… but but …. but ….. if you have all the hairs eaten up you can’t use them to make up underwear …. green isn’t always good for the Jean Genie ……..

    fracas replied:

    So let me get this straight. You use old, dirty hair from a gnarly drain hole to stuff your underwear? Plumb sakes lad… have ye never heard of a sock?

    daddyp replied:

    That is soooooo passé Fracarse ….. I’m very ‘street’ ……

    Being male, I have a technical question. How does this snake see what it is doing? Does it have an eye?

    daddyp replied:

    Hang about Archie – I’ll just ask the double entendre department …… OK, apparently it’s like a heat seeking missile ….. a hair magnet.
