This Taobao Item is a Bathroom Game Changer

Hot on Taobao is a monthly segment where we feature a product from Taobao our editors think is cool.

It’s the classic China conundrum. After living the high life in a brand-new apartment building in your fair city’s CBD, you decide a change of scenery is in order to get the authentic China experience. Now, you’re living in a much older building but saving a ton on rent. 

You think you’ve got it all figured out, right? Wrong. You made one fatal mistake (slight exaggeration) – you forgot to check the toilet. The dread sets in as you slowly start to realize your bathroom’s toilet doesn’t flush for shit.

You’ve got a code red on your hands and you don’t know what to do – Taobao to the rescue. But before you go and throw your money down the drain on ineffective pipe cleaners, take a look at the toilet gun. That’s right, plungers have gotten an upgrade in the form of high-pressure bursts of air, capable of unclogging that drain of yours in no time.

The toilet gun (not the official name, but it should be) is a hot commodity, with tens of thousands of people already having purchased their own handheld device. Between just the top three W.C. cannons listed on Taobao, over 1 million people have expressed interest in the ‘Declogerator.’

It’s quite intuitive – simply load up the device with an air pump, attach the end piece and fire away. It’s also a handy device for clogged shower and sink drains.

One satisfied customer shared his story in the reviews section, writing, “So sweet! My toilet was clogged for several days, so every day I would have to use my parent’s bathroom across the street… Once I got this miraculous tool, one use and problem solved… It’s 100 times better than those other trash products.” So, if you find yourself in this predicament, and mom and dad don’t live across the street, this might be the tool for you.

The ‘toilet gun’ is available on Taobao for RMB99-299.
