Common Causes of a Clogged Toilet

The blockage in a toilet can be caused by various objects or materials that obstruct the normal water flow and waste through the toilet. Some of these causes include:

  1. Excessive Toilet Paper:

    • Using an excessive amount of toilet paper in a single flush can overwhelm the toilet’s drainage capacity and lead to a clog. 

  2. Objects

    • Items such as sanitary products, wipes, dental floss, cotton balls, q-tips, or excessive amounts of hair can get flushed down the toilet and become stuck in the drain. This will lead to a clog.

  3. Build-up of Waste and Debris:

    • Over time, a buildup of waste, grease, or mineral deposits can accumulate inside the toilet drain or in the plumbing pipes. This will narrow the passage and eventually cause a clog.

When a toilet is clogged, it typically results in the water level rising or not draining when you attempt to flush. It’s important to address a clogged toilet promptly to prevent further complications.

There are certain situations where it may be beneficial to hire a professional technician when it comes to clogged toilets. Some of these situations include:

  1. Persistent or Severe Clogs:

    • If you’ve tried using a plunger or other DIY methods without success and the clog persists it may be a sign of a more complex blockage. A technician can utilize specialized tools and equipment to effectively clear the clog for you. 

  2. Repeated Clogs:

    • If you experience frequent toilet clogs, it could indicate an underlying plumbing issue. This may include blockage in the sewer line or inadequate venting. A technician can identify and address the root cause of the issue to prevent future clogs and blockages. 

  3. Limited Knowledge or Experience:

    • If you’re unfamiliar with plumbing systems, hiring a technician can provide you with a peace of mind. They have the expertise to handle the clog safely and efficiently.
