Getting rid of toilet clog

Hi,
Our toilet has recently become quite incompetent in doing its job, and I'm thinking of trying some simple fixes before informing the agency.

Recently I solved a similar issue in our bathroom sink using Rorax products: https://www.bauundhobby.ch/wohnen-li...00-g/p/3761889

However, I really doubt they can be used for the toilet basin, as they seem not to be intended to dissolve immediately into large amounts of liquid, let alone the possibility of damaging the pipes.

Does anyone have an experience in this? What can I use to apply some basic fix and see if the issue can be solved without inviting a professional?

Thanks

How about a simple plunger? First word I learned in NYC.

Migros have aerosol cans holding air under high pressure. One push into the drain releases the air ... BBBBBOOOOOMMMMMMMMMM.

Not guaranteed to clear the pipes but it is a lot of fun ...

I have no idea what it is called in English, let alone French or German.

And when you try that our make sure you have a watertight gopro running so that we can see what happened on youtube.
You could get a spiral from the Baumarkt and give that a twirl, if that hasnīt enough humpf to free the pipes then you need a professional unclogger, cos that shit-ainīt going nowhere.
