There are few things scarier than when the contents of your toilet start rising instead of sinking down the drain. Most of us will reach for the plunger at that point, but clogged toilets are not always as straightforward as they seem. Clogs can be caused (or worsened) by build-up that accumulates in your pipes and sewer lines over many years. If you’re having problems with clogged toilets, give Wolcott professionals a call. We’ll come out and make sure that your sewer’s in good shape.
What Causes Clogged Toilets?
That built-up sludge and debris that we mentioned before, flushed diapers, wipes, feminine hygiene products, paper towels and other non-flushable objects can all create serious clogs that require professional repair.
The Repair Process
First, Wolcott professionals will check out your clog and determine the best way to repair it. Next, we’ll explain our plan (and the logic behind it) to you. After we’re done with the repair, we’ll inspect your toilet to make sure that it wasn’t damaged during the process.
Tips for Preventing Clogged Toilets
- Use less toilet paper
- Flush twice if you need to
- Don’t flush anything except toilet paper (no feminine hygiene products, diapers, wipes, etc.)
- Place a trash can next to the toilet to discourage the flushing of anything other than toilet paper
- Install child safety locks on toilets to keep kids from flushing weird stuff
- Educate everyone in your household about how the plumbing works
