Tools to Clear Toilet Clogs
Drain Auger (Drain Snake)
A drain auger, also known as a drain snake or plumbing snake, is a tool used to clear clogs and obstructions from pipes and drains. It consists of a long, flexible cable with an auger head or corkscrew-like attachment at the end, which is inserted into the drain or pipe to break up or dislodge blockages, restoring proper flow through the plumbing system.
Wear rubber gloves and place a plunger over the toilet drain. Ensure that the plunger covers the entire drain opening and forms a seal. Push the plunger up and down vigorously to create suction and pressure, which helps dislodge the clog. Repeat the plunging motion several times until the water starts draining properly.
Common Causes of Toilet Clogs
Toilet clogs can occur due to various reasons, and it’s essential to understand the common causes to prevent future issues. Some of the typical culprits behind toilet clogs include:
Flushing Non-Flushable Items
Flushing non-flushable items down the toilet, such as baby wipes, feminine hygiene products, cotton balls, paper towels, and toys can cause severe clogs. These items do not break down easily or at all and can accumulate in your pipes.
Plumbing System Blockages
Deeper clogs or blockages in your plumbing system can also lead to toilet clogs. These blockages may be caused by tree roots infiltrating the pipes, mineral buildup, or other debris accumulation over time. A video camera line inspection can help to accurately diagnose the cause of persistent drain clogs. Additionally, Beach Plumbing offers hydro jetting services to clear problem lines.
Low Water Flow Can Cause Toilet Clogs
If your toilet’s water flow is inadequate, it may not have enough force to flush down waste effectively. This can result in partial clogs or repeated clogging issues.
Excessive Toilet Paper Usage
Using too much toilet paper or using thick and non-dissolvable brands can lead to clogs. It’s crucial to find the right balance to avoid putting strain on your plumbing system.
