Symptoms Of A Clogged Toilet

Symptoms of a toilet clog are easy to spot (unfortunately or fortunately; depending on how you look at it)

  • Toilet overflows
  • Spontaneous refilling inside the toilet tank
  • Poor flushing or no flush at all
  • Gurgling or bubbling sound in your bowl
  • Leaks around your toilet from backup
Clogs happen…

Toilet clogs happen for many reasons, but one of the most common reasons is from trying to flush the wrong things.

Flushings dos:

  1. Human waste
  2. Single ply toilet paper

Flushing don’ts

  1. Hand Wipes / Baby Wipes
  2. Feminine Hygiene Products
  3. Paper Towels / Shop Towels

It’s all in the plunger

All plungers are not created equal. In fact there are at least four different types of plungers with four different applications:

  1. Flange Plunger: A flange plunger is typically used for toilets
  2. Cup Plunger: A cup plunger is used for sinks
  3. Accordion Plunger: This is used typically for the hardest of clogs in a toilet.
  4. Taze Plunger: A taze plunger is used for larger pipes and is not a common household item.

When plungers don’t work, it’s time to contact our Rooterologists™
