We’ll Find the Cause Of Your Blocked Toilet
A clogged toilet is one of the most unsanitary and unpleasant plumbing problems a home can experience. The issue will be impossible for you to ignore, but the source of the problem might not be easy for you to diagnose on your own.
That’s our job.
When you call Squeaks Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, we’ll use our expertise to find the root cause of your toilet’s clog and determine the best solution. No blocked toilet in the Boulder, CO area is too tough for us. Here are some of the most common culprits for clogged toilets:
Sometimes, people try to flush things down the toilet that aren’t meant to be flushed. Mischievous children often try to flush toys, keys, or wallets down the toilet, but adults aren’t always perfect in discerning what can and can’t be flushed. For example, no matter what the packaging says, “flushable” wipes aren’t actually flushable. Since they don’t dissolve, they can easily get stuck in your drains, pipes, or sewers. Other items people try to flush, but shouldn’t, include:
- Tissues – Like flushable wipes, they don’t dissolve and can lead to clogs.
- Cotton balls – Same issues as tissues.
- Prescription medicines – They can contaminate water supplies.
- Dental Floss – Floss may seem thin and flushable, but when it wraps itself about objects, it can quickly accumulate into a wad that creates a clog.
Your pipes take wastewater from your drains to your sewer line. When those pipes get clogged, sewage will back up through your drains, making your home look and smell like a disaster area.
If your sewer line is clogged, it will affect all of the drains throughout the home, not just your toilet. Your sinks and bathtubs will have raw sewage bubbling up through your drains, and your home will likely require repair or replacement of the main sewer line.
The Toilet Itself
It’s also a possibility that the clog is resulting not from a part of your home’s plumbing, but from the toilet’s machinery. Like any machine or appliance, your toilet won’t last forever. If your toilet has run its course and needs replacement, it’s time for our toilet installation service.
