Snaking Toilet

Think I might have a partial clog in my toilet drain line. Is it ok to snake from the toilet bowl? Any idea if it will scratcht he bowl?

Scratch or break the bowl depending on what you use.

Use a toiler auger if the clog is in the toilet itself.

If its past that its best to pull the toilet or find a suitable cleanout.

A small snake down the toilet will not clear a mainline clog. To use a larger snake down the toilet, and to get around the trap, will probably damage the toilet. That is if you even get it down.
