Clogged toilets are stressful. Everything seems fine until you flush and the water starts to rise. The first thing to do is turn off the water beneath the tank or lift the float inside the tank. The second thing to do is try a plunger and some elbow grease. Unfortunately, that isn’t always enough to fix a problem, especially when it’s happening out of sight. When it comes to a clogged toilet, Portland home owners call on the experts at All County Plumbing. Not only do we provide fast and affordable service, we’ll walk you through the problem and teach you how to prevent it in the future.
The primary causes of a clogged toilet.
- Clogged Drains – Clogged drains can affect your toilet and may not occur within the toilet itself. You’ll know the clog is deeper when additional drain lines are backing up as well. Our plumbers perform a thorough line inspection to determine depth and cause. We can clear a clog where it lies in the system line.
- Low Flow Clogs – Low flow toilets clog much more frequently than traditional models. This is doubly true for earlier models. The technology has since been refined, but if you find your low flow toilet is clogging much more than you believe it should a replacement may be in order.
- Blocked Trap – Traps keep sewage gas from entering your home. The “S” shape of these traps can easily lead to clogs. This can happen from something designed to flush like paper, to toys and other foreign objects. If we determine this is the problem we can remove, clear, and re-install your trap.
Always hire a professional to unclog your toilet!
Over the counter clog removers are dangerous. There is a reason they come with visible warning label. Chemical cleaners release toxic fumes. Accidentally inhaling them can cause respiratory issues, headaches, and nausea. If young children are present these negative effects can be even greater. Do not use chemical cleaners if you have a septic tank. Septic systems function because of specific bacteria that break down matter. Cleaners can actually kill this bacteria. Your pipes may also be sensitive to chemical corrosion. Chemical cleaner can wear away pipes over time leading to leaks, breaks, or worse.
