What causes clogged toilets?
There are several things that can cause toilets to clog. Clogs often occur when people put too much tissue in the toilet. Sanitary products, diapers, paper towels and tissues are some of the other things that can cause a toilet to clog. Toilets are designed to only hold human waste and tissue. Children often place items in the toilet that can cause it to get clogged. Shampoos, conditioners, toys, hair dressing items, clips, barrettes and toilet fresheners are some of the other items that can potentially clog a toilet if accidently flushed.
Additionally, it is important to note that a clogged toilet may be an indication of a more serious problem. It could be a sign that there is a clog inside of the main drain. If you suspect that there is a clog in inside of the main drain, then you will need to contact a professional as soon as you can.
How can you avoid this problem?
In most cases, the things that we put inside of a toilet cause clogs. That is why one of the best things that you can do to prevent toilet clogs is to watch what you flush down the toilet. Dental floss, hair, cotton swabs, cat litter, and tampons are examples of some of the common items that some people flush down the toilet without realizing they can cause clogs.
You should never flush anything but toilet tissue and waste down a toilet. You should also flush a little bit of toilet tissue down at one time. Many clogs occur because people flush too much tissue down the toilet at one time.
Many people store things on the top of the toilet. However, this is something that you will need to avoid doing. If an item falls into the toilet, then it can very easily get clogged. Small children enjoy putting things inside of a toilet. That is why if you have children in your home, you should make sure that you teach them that they should not put things in the toilet. There are also toilet latches that you can use in order to deter children from putting things inside of a toilet.
What are some professional solutions?
Even though most homeowners are able to handle simple clogs, it is best to hire a professional if the clog is serious. Plumbers can use a device called an auger to unclog a toilet. An auger is a cable that is inserted directly into the toilet’s drain in order to unclog it. Augers are very effective for removing drain clogs. However, plumbers sometimes need to take the toilet apart in order to remove the clog.
Another popular alternative is hydrojetting. This service is ideal for stubborn clogs that do not go away despite the different methods used. It is also safer on your plumbing and faster than other processes.
