Nothing throws a monkey wrench into your day like a toilet that won’t flush. Sometimes, no matter what you do, the clog remains, and you fear the next flush will cause the bowl to overflow. At Sewer Squad Plumbing & Drain Services, we’ve seen our fair share of clogged toilets and have fixed them all. The next time you have trouble with your toilet, call our experts for help.

What Causes Toilet Clogs?

No one wants to deal with a clogged toilet, but they’re a reality for many people in the greater Toronto area. The best way to deal with a toilet clog is to prevent it in the first place, and here are a few reasons why people experience toilet backups.

  • Too Much Paper:  Some people use a lot of toilet paper, which is fine. However, it’s wise to flush the waste first, then the toilet paper instead of all at once. Also, experts recommend folding your toilet paper instead of wadding it up into a ball.
  • Flushing Non-Flushing Items: Feminine hygiene products such as pads and tampons should go in the trash instead of the toilet. Also, personal wipes, even the ones that say are flushable, should go in the trash.
  • Hair: Hair is a common culprit for drain clogs. If you’re in the habit of cleaning out brushes and combs over the toilet and flushing the hair, consider putting the hair in the trash instead.

When To Consider Toilet Replacement

Maintaining your GTA home isn’t easy; it seems like there’s always something that needs doing. However, one of the most critical systems that require constant maintenance is your plumbing. A toilet that doesn’t work or is out of date can be frustrating to deal with. Below, we look at signs it’s time to replace your old toilet.

  • Constant Clogs: Many old, low-flow toilets lack the power to get rid of waste, which leads to clogs. If you have too many clogs to deal with, consider upgrading to a new model.
  • Cracks: Cracks lead to leaks, so if you see water pooling around your toilet, check for cracks in the porcelain. If left unchecked, the water can warp the floor, which is another expense to deal with.
  • Age: Many older toilets waste money because they’re inefficient and use more water than needed. Today’s toilets use less water, which saves you money on your water bill and still has sufficient power to remove waste.

How To Repair A Clogged Toilet

When your toilet fails to flush, it’s easy to panic. However, before you do, try these remedies first.

  • Plunger: The handy plunger clears away most clogs, so try this method first. The best plunger to use on the toilet is one with a flange because it forms a better seal for more effective clog removal.
  • Baking Soda & Vinegar: If you don’t have a plunger, try putting a cup of baking soda into the toilet, then after a few minutes, pour in two cups of vinegar to break up the clog.
  • Wet/Dry Vacuum: For extreme clogs, try using a wet/dry vacuum.
  • Call a Plumber: If all else fails, call a professional plumber for help.
