Clogged Toilets: Causes, Fixes, and Prevention

Few things are worse than a clogged toilet with the potential to overflow. There are many reasons a toilet may clog, including the following:

  • Trying to flush items that shouldn’t be flushed, such as hair, napkins, diapers, paper towels, feminine products and more
  • Flushing too much toilet paper at once
  • Deteriorating pipes that prevent waste from passing through to the main sewer line
  • Not taking care of any plant or tree roots that could have made their way into your pipes

When your toilet clogs, have no fear – getting it unclogged could be simple. Follow these steps to attempt unclogging on your own:

  • Lift off the tank lid and keep the toilet from overflowing by pulling up on the float ball.
  • Cut off the water supply to the toilet by turning off the valve at the toilet’s base.
  • If at this point water looks like it might spill out of the tank or bowl, use a bucket to bail out some of the water.
  • Grab your plunger and give the toilet 2-3 good plunges, being sure to pull back from the plunge with force. Learn to plunge like a pro with our video.
  • Repeat until the toilet drains properly.

Of course, some clogs take more expertise to solve, so hesitate to call Roto-Rooter’s Atlanta clogged toilet service for help from an experienced plumber. Not only do we provide fast and professional service, but we supply you with bathroom plumbing tips to help prevent problems in the future. For example, some simple ways to prevent clogged toilets include:

  • Be careful what you flush.
  • Keep a trash can in each bathroom for proper disposal of things like cotton balls, tissues, feminine products, diapers, wipes and similar items.
  • Use courtesy flushes to help prevent flushing too much waste and toilet paper at once.

How to Fix a Leaking Toilet

Leaking toilets may not prevent you from using your toilet, but they can cause unseen damage to your plumbing fixtures. Not only that, but – depending on the size of the leak – they can cost you anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars a year on your utility bill. Yikes! In addition, fixing your leaking toilet is important for water conservation.

Not sure you have a leak? It’s easy to test for leaks by dropping food coloring into the tank of your toilet. Then, wait 15 minutes and see if there is color in the bowl. If so, you have a leak. Fixing the leak on your toilet may include any of the following actions:

  • Replace the flapper valve.
  • Replace the fill valve.
  • Replace all tank parts by purchasing and installing a rebuild kit from your local hardware store.
  • Upgrade your toilet to a newer, low-flow version. This is an especially good option if your toilet was manufactured before 1994.
  • Call an experienced plumber at Roto-Rooter for our Atlanta toilet repair services.
