Blocked Toilets

Estimated reading: 2 minutes

If not quickly resolved, blocked toilets can cause unpleasant odours and unclean conditions in addition to being a huge annoyance.

Common techniques for clearing stuck toilets include:

  1. Using a plunger: A plunger is a simple tool that can be used to dislodge blockages in the toilet. Plunge the toilet vigorously for a minute or two to try and loosen the blockage.

  2. Using a toilet auger: A toilet auger is a long, flexible tool that can be inserted into the toilet to reach and remove blockages. Insert the auger into the toilet and turn the handle to push the auger through the blockage.

  3. Using a toilet brush: A toilet brush can be used to scrub the inside of the toilet bowl to remove any buildup or blockages. Scrub the inside of the toilet bowl, paying special attention to the area around the waterline.

  4. Using a chemical cleaner: Chemical cleaners can be poured into the toilet to break down blockages. Be sure to follow the instructions on the cleaner and use appropriate safety precautions.

It is important to note that the best way to prevent blocked toilets is to be mindful of what is being disposed of down the toilet, avoid flushing inappropriate items and have regular maintenance and cleaning done. If a blockage does occur, it is important to address it as soon as possible to avoid any further damage or unpleasant odors.
