    Muriatic acid (Hyrdrochloric)is good for disolving Calcium deposits in older toilets. Often
    the fushing rim ports will be occluded by these deposits or the siphon jet will build up enough to give poor performance.
    Pour a gallon into the bowl slowly and cover with a piece of plastic to contain the fumes ( a
    large garbage bag will do very nicely), let it stand over night and flush in the morning.
    Read the danger lable on the acid container and heed the instructions.
    If the toilet stoppage is do to organic material, try clearing it with a closet auger. It may be a sewer problem if sewage is found in the bathtub or shower.
