A clogged toilet is reason to be concerned about your pipe system, especially if your unit is experiencing frequent clogs. Contact your local plumbers at 24-7 Plumbing And Drain to get this problem solved right away.
What’s causing your clogged toilet problem?
Unlike with a kitchen sink, clogs in the toilet are typically caused by two things: excessive toilet paper or a foreign object that’s stuck in your pipes. Flushing too much toilet paper can block your pipes and impede the smooth flow of water and waste. Some of the paper may not even be saturated enough to start the breakdown process.
Foreign objects, from diapers to toys, are also common culprits. As the plumbing transitions from the toilet to the wall, pipes become progressively thinner. The object can then become lodged down the piping, requiring professional help to remove it.
A more rare type of clogging is a collapsed main pipe. This pipe carries waste water to the municipal sewer treatment facilities. If it collapses, it creates a barrier to passing water. If you notice water backing up in all your sinks, showers, and toilets then you will know something is wrong with the main pipe.
What professional solutions are available?
We will locate the source of the clog before beginning any repair or unclogging work. This way, we will also be able to see if there are any cracks or other problems in your system before committing to a cleaning process.
We use a plumber’s snake to clear most clogs. For more shallow clogs closer to the toilet, this method is fast and simple. What’s more, there are no chemicals used in the process to keep your pipes safe.
Want to avoid this problem in the future?
Avoiding toilet clogs simply requires being mindful of what gets flushed on a regular basis. As mentioned above, try not to flush too much toilet paper and make sure you are only flushing the appropriate material.

To keep the pipes clean, try this trick: Boil a pot of hot water and flush it down the toilet. The boiling water reaches all of the pipes, effectively cleaning them of any built-up debris. Only use chemicals in extreme situations. However, if you are experiencing a significant blockage, contact us so we can inspect your unit for the best solution.
