How Do Clogged Toilets Happen?
Toilets can clog due to a variety of problems that range from the preventable to the completely unexpected. Most clogged toilet service calls can be classified into one of two categories:
- Simple clogs: This is the most common type of clog. Simple clogs occur when the pipe is blocked by organic material or items that aren’t water soluble. Most frequently, we see simple clogs happen when using too much toilet paper or flushing items such as diapers.
- Foreign objects: Some items really shouldn’t be flushed, like toys, toothbrushes, or diapers. But when the unexpected happens, the best way to clear the clog is by contacting a professional plumber at Mercy Plumbing.
How to Prevent Clogged Toilets
More than a simple inconvenience, toilet clogs can also lead to serious pipe damage that may result in needing to install a new toilet. The pressure buildup may also cause pipes to burst, which would require repiping.
The best way to protect your home from the frustrations of clogged toilets is by preventing them in the first place. Here are some professional tips and tricks to stop clogged toilets before they start:
- Install a childproof lock on the seat to prevent children from flushing foreign objects such as toys
- Place a garbage can next to the toilet for non-soluble items such as diapers and personal care products
- Use less toilet paper
