A blocked drain is frustrating – It leaves you with a problem that must be dealt with straight away.
Thankfully, when you arm yourself with the correct information– and keep our contact information for our professional plumbers here at All Day Plumbing close at hand – you won’t have anything to worry about.
The truth of the matter is there could be a whole host of different contributing factors that have put you in this sticky and unpleasant situation.
Most commonly, waste may eventually get built up in the toilet plumbing itself causing further problems– or in the “plumbing trap”.
This will eventually slow down or block the flow of water completely within the toilet. This will shut your toilet down right away.
From time to time, objects can be dropped and flushed into toilets (especially if you’re dealing with small children in the home that love to explore and experiment) – and this will almost always lead to some kind of locked toilet situation.
Of course, you may also change the kind of toilet paper that you are using. Some are more toilet friendly than others, and some of them have the potential to stick in your plumbing, allowing debris and waste to collect, and cause a clogged situation as well.
The first thing our experienced team of plumbers will do is assess the type of blockage and where it is to figure out WHY you are dealing with the blockage in the first place.
After that, everything gets to be a lot easier.
If you want to figure out how to unclog a toilet all on your own (without having to use a plunger and without having to call our professionals here at All Day Plumbing), you want to use the details below to help you really hit the ground running.
The best method for a clogged toilet you can get your hands on without using a plunger is a mixture of baking soda and vinegar, as well as a bucket of boiling water.
Add the baking soda into your toilet bowl and then add in of vinegar to the mixture, allowing everything to fizz, foam, and create that chemical reaction we all have come to expect from this “homemade volcano”.
After allowing this mixture to do the heavy lifting in breaking up the obstructions in your plumbing, simply dump a bucket of boiling water – slowly, we should add – into the toilet so that it forces scalding hot water through the plumbing. Flush the toilet after doing this to see if your problem has been fixed.
This is not guaranteed to help you fix any blocked toilet situation, but we recommend trying this for your blocked drains if you aren’t going to call in our professionals to help you out.
This will work depending on the type of blockage you have.
If that doesn’t work, the team at All day Plumbing are always just a phone call away!
