Toilet Clog

How do you know if you have a toilet clog?

Most clogged toilets are known as “slow drainers.” A “slow drainer” is defined by a partial filling of the bowl with flush water that does not effectively wash away waste.

The water level remains high, then usually drains down to normal height within a minute or two. You might not even know the toilet is clogged until you flush it.

Toilet clog causes

A toilet clog often results from materials that have been flushed down the toilet such as toilet paper, baby wipes, feminine hygiene products, etc. Toilet clogs are quite common and it is obvious if you have this problem.

Toilet clog signs

  • The toilet water will drain slower than usual or not at all
  • You can hear the toilet struggling to flush and gurgling
  • When you plunge or use a toilet plunger, the flush water will rise in the toilet bowl and not even begin to recede

How to prevent a toilet clog

There are many ways to prevent a clog. You should always be sure that nothing other than human waste will traveling through your pipes before flushing.

Steps you can take to prevent a clog.

  • Do not flush items such as soiled baby wipes and feminine hygiene products
  • Avoid overfilling the toilet bowl
  • Avoid flushing too much toilet paper
  • Be cautious that children do not flush objects down the toilet themselves
