How to Fix Your Clogged Toilet

Do you have a clogged toilet? Clogged toilets are a common household problem. Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Service can unclog your toilet and determine if there is an underlying problem causing persistent clogs. Experts at Roto-Rooter say there are several steps to take when your toilet clogs. First you need to stop the toilet bowl from filling up and spilling onto the floor. You can do this by taking the lid off of the tank and closing the flapper valve to ensure no water can enter the tank. Try lifting up the float to stop water from flowing in then reach down and turn off the water supply valve.
