Blocked Toilet & Drains

All homeowners have to contend with blocked drains at some point. Although you can buy products designed to unblock drains, these products can potentially damage your plumbing. At Plumbing Alberton, our plumbers will quickly find the source of the problem without damaging your system.

Blocked Toilet

A clogged toilet is an annoying and unsanitary problem to have. The causes of a clogged toilet are typically pieces of tissue paper, foreign objects, improper or excessive amounts of toilet paper, as well as build-up over time. If a large number of items are flushed at once, it can cause clogs in the pipe connecting your toilet to the main sewer line. A clogged toilet can also be a result of a buildup in the U-bend or trap of the toilet, often caused by soap scum or soft clumps of hair. With hair and soap scum, this can collect and bind together to form a tight block, which can cause the toilet to clog. If it is a deeper clog, a plumber may need to be called to help resolve the issue. A clogged toilet is one of the most common plumbing issues among homeowners. Toilet clogs happen for a variety of reasons, from excessive toilet paper, sanitary pads, and/or wipes entering the bowl, to an object that has fallen in by mistake. In either case, you need the assistance of an experienced plumbing professional to assist. Once a professional plumber has determined that your toilet is indeed clogged, they will use special equipment to clear the clog. This may include a specialized snake tool that can be used to dislodge the clog, or the use of an auger, a device that can break up the clog.

Blocked Drain

The drain blockage will prevent water flow, which can potentially have serious implications. You can’t afford to ignore this problem for long.

What Causes Blocked Drains?
When a drain is blocked, it simply means something in the pipeline is preventing water from flowing. The drain blockage can be caused by any number of factors.

Often the blocked drain is caused by a hidden danger, with tree roots being one of the most common causes. But due to pipes being buried underground, the only time you notice the problem is when water doesn’t flow or your toilet is backed up.

Among the most common causes of blocked drains are:

Grease or soap build-up
Toilet paper, wet wipes or baby wipes
Hair or fur
Tree roots, garden waste, leaves or dirt
Collapsed or damaged pipe
Foreign objects (e.g. toys, jewellery)

A blocked toilet can also be classed as a plumbing emergency. This is because blocked toilets can pose a risk to health. And, of course, if you only have one toilet on your property, waiting until the next day to call a plumber simply isn’t an option.
If your plunger can’t break up the clog, it’s unlikely that baking soda and dish soap are going to work. If,after five or so minutes, the plunger isn’t working, it’s time to call a plumber.
The best way is to pour some bleach and washing liquid into the toilet bowl and swirl the plunger for a few minutes in the mixture.Then rinse it by flushing the toilet twice. This will also help move the blockage forward.

There are many reasons why a toilet can become blocked. If you’ve flushed anything that is not toilet paper or human waste, those foreign objects can cause a blockage.
