What causes a blocked toilet?
There are a lot of items in a normal household that can cause a clogged toilet. Problems are caused when people try to flush things they shouldn’t. In truth, the only thing that should be flushed down a toilet, aside from the usual, is toilet paper. Here are some things that can cause a clogged toilet:
Cheap quality toilet paper
Cotton cleaning tips
A little care can help prevent clogs in the first place. But be aware that sometimes flushing problems are an indication you might have other plumbing problems like low water pressure and blocked vents and drain lines that may require a professional plumber.
What to do if you have a clogged toilet?
If you experience a clogged toilet, and everyone does eventually, you can try clearing it yourself with one of a few common solutions. Normally the first blocked toilet fix that people turn to is the old-fashioned plunger. This will often work, but not always. An option for more stubborn clogs or blocked drains is a drain auger, also called a plumber’s snake. Small ones can be bought at almost any hardware store. Both can be used in conjunction with a chemical drain cleaner. But if those don’t work, you’ll need to call an expert.
What NOT to do if your toilet is blocked
Often when confronted by a clogged toilet, the first response is to keep trying to flush the toilet in the hopes that it will clear itself. This is a mistake as it will probably cause the toilet to overflow and create a mess. Also, don’t try to remove the toilet from the floor in hopes that you can more easily reach a blockage. Toilets are heavy, and you can easily drop and shatter one, requiring you to buy an expensive new one. You’ll also have to buy a new wax ring to reinstall it. Much easier and cheaper to call in a professional if one of the common solutions don’t work.
