What’s Causing Your Clogged Toilet Issues?
For most homeowners, a clogged toilet will stem from excess toilet paper or a foreign object like kids toys, finding their way into the toilet. However, there are some other reasons for these problems as well, including:
- Sewer Line Issues: Your toilet is part of a larger sewage system that helps keep grey water away from your home. If there is a damaged or clogged sewer line somewhere in your plumbing system, it may affect your toilets ability to flush as well.
- P-Trap Blockage: Toilets are designed to create a vacuum that pushes the water out of and away from your bowl. The P-trap is the curved piping at the back of your toilet. If this plumbing is clogged or slowed in any way, it won’t allow the toilet to work properly.
- Mechanical Issues: The tank behind your toilet also houses critical components that affect your toilet’s ability to flush and refill. If any of those components are damaged or stuck open, your toilet won’t operate properly.
- Old Toilet or Plumbing: As your plumbing gets older it may start to deteriorate. This deterioration can leave you with an unsightly toilet - that’s stained, rusted, or damaged - along with slow draining plumbing to boot.
- Foreign Objects: We mentioned it before and it’s one of the more common reasons your toilet will clog. Whether it’s non-flushable baby wipes or cat litter, you should never flush anything other than reasonable amounts of toilet paper down the toilet.
By inspecting these different areas of your toilet system often, you can avoid major plumbing issues in your home. If the time comes that you need reliable clogged toilet repairs, then look no further than John Henry’s.
