Here’s What You Need to Know About a Clogged Toilet
We’ve all been there: You flush the toilet but something gets stuck in the process. Now you have a clogged toilet and it can be a real mess if it’s not dealt with properly. Here are things to keep in mind if you find yourself with a clogged toilet. To better gauge what’s caused it, ask whether the clog happened because you used too much toilet paper or flushed down something you shouldn’t have. If this is the case, you may be able to plunge the clog free yourself.
However, if you did everything normally, then the clog is probably further down in the system and requires a clogged toilet repair plumber.
Your Clogged Toilet Might Point to a Bigger Problem
When you have a clog in your toilet that’s not caused by something you did, it could signify that you have a bigger problem in your pipes or in your sewer line. Sewer line blockages happen for a variety of reasons including:
- Hair Stuck in the Drain
- Non-degradable Items Flushed Down the Toilet
- Tree Roots Growing Into the Sewer Pipe
- Grease or Fatty Substances Poured Down the Drain
If you think your toilet might be clogged because of a problem further down in the system, it’s essential that you call in a toilet repair professional as soon as possible before the system backs up and overflows into your home.
