All I can remember of this particular episode is the monster;

  • It was a humanoid / worm-creature that traveled through drain pipes.

  • I'm pretty sure it gained access to people's homes through their toilets.

  • I remember thinking the creature was especially creepy.

    That was called the Chamber of Secrets. – Ryan Perry Aug 11 '15 at 20:41

    When I read the question I immediately thought of Eugene from Tooms. – Glen Thomas Aug 11 '15 at 21:25

This is "The Host".

The X-Files wiki identifies the protagonist as a mutated flukeworm:

Mulder and Scully investigate a body found in sewage after being reassigned to different departments. Their inquiry results in the discovery of a bizarre fluke-like man—the product of the Chernobyl disaster—that soon goes on a rampage in the sewers of New Jersey.

weird, ugly, worm-like monster

    God... Yeah that's the guy! What a looker!! – Daft Aug 11 '15 at 20:46

    This was the only episode of the X Files that I had nightmares of when I was a child. Still freaks me out. – AerusDar Aug 11 '15 at 23:31

    Great. Should not have clicked on this. I have routine nightmares of this very episode still as an adult. – Brad Aug 12 '15 at 4:45

    You folks should refrain from watching "Home" (S4E2). That makes Flukeman look like the cute monsters from "Hotel Transylvania". – JCCyC Jan 22 '18 at 17:15

It was Tooms - they made 2 episodes with the character Tooms, one with the same name, the first was Squeeze. Or possibly The Host

  • No I don't think it was. The creature I remember was much more worm-like. – Daft Aug 11 '15 at 20:39
  • Just added The Host as another option. This is The X-Files - there were a few ;) – Peter Aug 11 '15 at 20:41
  • Oh, I posted my answer without seeing that you had edited. The Host is a better fit to the question, yes. (I should have spent less time on Wikipedia, but you know how it goes.) – Mr Lister Aug 11 '15 at 20:52

In episode "Agua Mala" (S06E13, 1999) there is a worm-like creature, it changes consistency from liquid to jelly and viceversa.

From IMDb:

As a hurricane bears down on the Florida coast, the agents search for a sea monster that Arthur Dales believes is responsible for the disappearance of a couple and their son.
