That's why I commented about a metal snake run through the toilet
scratching the bottom of the bowl. There are some grey scatches inside
that toilet now which won't scrub off, even with a Brillo pad.


Have you tried Bon Ami Cleaning Powder /Comet/Ajax to see if it will
remove the marks? Remove the water, then scrub with damp powder.

Matter of fact I did try that, after sucking the water out of the bowl
with my shop vac. Scrubbing with Ajax using one of those kitchen sponges
with a Scotchbrite" pad on one side just didn't do it.

They're not really terrible, but I can still see them.

The speed of light is 1.8*10^12 furlongs per fortnight.

Some kitchen pans will leave metal on the sink, occasionally. It
cleans up with the powder cleaners.

Not a suggestion, but I might even try Muriactic acid and see it
helped. Maybe a half cup poured into the bowl.
