Toilet Clogs and Clogged Toilet Repair by Plumber in Alliston

Toilet clogs can result in a costly problem for any home owner if they are not able to clear a clog in a timely manner. We have seen frequently problems with modern day efficient toilets as compared to older models. Older models generally use more water during it’s flushing cycle which ultimately provides a stronger push to remove waste though your plumbing. As compared to newer model toilets that are made to be water efficiently, they typically use much less water to flush. It is extremely important to pay close attention to the flushing capabilities of your toilet and ensure you avoid flushing specific items in order to prevent a toilet clog.

It is very common to see a toilet clog due to toilet paper. Toilet paper is made so that it dissolves in water. However occasionally when too much toilet paper is used, it can cause a clog in your toilet. This is typically cleared simply by using a plunger. Often people might substitute toilet paper for paper towels. Paper towels should never be flushed in a toilet, they are not designed to be used in a toilet and do not dissolve when flushed. This results in a nasty toilet clog.

Foreign objects such as children’s toys can cause a backup in your toilet. It is very common for children to show interest in the functionality of a toilet and may place toys or other objects in a toilet just to watch it flush.
