What exactly causes clogged toilets?
There are many possibilities that can lead to your toilet ultimately being clogged, including toilet paper itself. Some toilet problems are actually due to brands that make toilet paper “too durable” that will eventually cause problems due to their inability to break down after it has been flushed. Using an excess amount of toilet paper is a common occurrence to a clogged toilet, especially with children around the house.
Speaking of children, toys ending up in the toilet is also a leading cause of broken toilets. Toys, toothpaste, brushes, and countless other items have been put in the toilet. We’ve seen it all. Items can get lodged deep in the pipes that a regular plunger can’t always reach, leading to homeowners needing professional assistance so that no other damage is made.
Toilet problems are more common in older homes due to older plumbing and pipes, but clogs are not limited to older toilets and shouldn’t be taken lightly.
How can you avoid toilet clogs?
Everything in moderation helps conserve your home in a good condition. Using toilet paper in moderation and educating your younger children about putting toys down the drain will help preserve your plumbing and avoid having to call in the professionals.
Look at the professional solutions
Professional service teams approach toilet issues differently that most homeowners. Instead of reaching for the plunger, a service company understands that often problems arise from a lot of underlying factors.
It is common for a system to simply need additional water to help flush items. It can be common to have a professional check the water tank to make sure it isn’t empty. If it is, that can be what’s preventing contents from being pushed through the system. Professionals can then use special chemicals, similar to drano and other pipe cleaners, to help break down the excess toilet paper so that the toilet can increase efficiency.
Another professional solution to a broken toilet is a plumbing auger. This is a useful tool that includes a special cable to loose and remove clogs. This is also popular in the mission to help find toys, and other items in the pipes. Some issues can lead to the main line in which a professional team can take the proper actions to make sure your issue is resolved.
