Richard flushed with suc­cess thanks to Toi­letsaber

In­ven­tor rakes in £340k from sales of stick

A TAL­ENTED Bea­cons­field in­ven­ter has cre­ated a stick that claims to un­block toi­lets in just 10 sec­onds – net­ting him an £340,000 in sales in the past two months.

The Toi­letsaber is be­ing used in hos­pi­tals, care homes and doc­tors surg­eries as it of­fers a hy­gienic al­ter­na­tive to toi­let plungers.

Richard Mur­phy, 33, claims it is the world’s most hy­gienic toi­let un-blocker and takes just 10 sec­onds to do the job.

The new de­vice has sur­passed Mr Mur­phy’s first goal of £100,000 and more than 600 Toi­letsabers are now be­ing sold ev­ery day.

“Even within 10 sec­onds, the user has time to thor­oughly clean the de­vice,” Mr Mur­phy said.

“If you un­block a toi­let with a toi­let plunger, eve- ry nook and cranny in­side and out will trap fae­ces. This makes plungers dif­fi­cult, awk­ward and time­con­sum­ing to thor­oughly clean.”

Shaped like a sabre, the Toi­letsaber is made in one piece from a snap-proof poly­mer which makes it vir­tu­ally in­de­struc­tible in nor­mal use, the in­ven­tor claims.

The simple de­vice is first used as a rake to clear ex­cess waste away from the hole in the toi­let bowl and ex­pose the ob­struc­tion.

The user then turns the de­vice around and in­serts it into the U-bend to push through the ob­struc­tion and clear the block­age.

The Toi­letsaber is be­ing sold at www.toi­ for £19.99.
