What Causes Clogged Toilets?

Each clogged toilet emergency can be categorized into one of these two types of clogs:

  • Simple Clogs: These are often caused by using too much toilet paper or when a non-water-soluble item is flushed down the toilet. Some examples include diapers, personal hygiene products, or other organic materials. Some great tips to avoid simple clogs include placing a garbage can next to the toilet, using less toilet paper, and flushing twice if needed.
  • Foreign Objects: These clogs are commonly caused by children who are learning to use the toilet, and, therefore, exploring and experimenting around the home. For some reason, flushing things like toys, toothbrushes, shampoo bottles, and cell phones are irresistible for kids of a certain age. If you have small kids at home, try installing a childproof lock on the toilet lid to keep unwanted items out of the bowl.

Are Some Toilets More Prone to Clogs Than Others?

Some people think their toilet is just prone to getting clogs while others might say their toilet is clog proof. However, the truth is there are some toilets that are more susceptible to clogs than others and those are low flow toilets. 

Now, low flow toilets do have advantages; they save you money by using less water and are better for the environment. However, sometimes certain models lack the power to effectively clear away waste. Without the force needed to push the waste through the system, clogs develop. Newer low flow toilets have improved and don’t experience these issues much, but if you have an older low flow toilet, call us and let us show you how you can avoid clogs altogether.

  • Can I repipe my home myself?
    While it is possible to repipe a home yourself, it is not recommended, as it can be a difficult and dangerous process. Repiping a home requires working with water and pipes, which can easily lead to accidents if not done correctly. It is best to leave this job to the professionals.
  • What should I do if my water pressure is low?
    If your water pressure is low, you may need to call a plumber to have your water pressure checked. Low water pressure can be caused by a variety of factors, such as a clogged water filter or a leaky faucet. It's important to address low water pressure as soon as possible, as it can lead to water waste and increased energy costs.
  • How often should I clean my drains?
    It is recommended that you clean your drains every six months. However, if water is backing up into the tub, sink, or toilet in your home when you flush it, then you need to call a plumber right away to clean the drain. If water backs up into your sink then it's probably coming from your shower and vice versa. Cleaning out the lines will prevent water from backing up into your home.
  • What is the best way to clear a clogged grease drain?

    There are a few effective ways to clear a grease-clogged drain.

    • Use boiling water and dish soap to break up grease buildup.
    • Pour water mixed with baking soda into the drain, then pour vinegar on top of it to get a chemical reaction that breaks down grease.
    • Drain cleaners can also remove water buildup and hard water scale.
    • Plumbers recommend using a water-powered mechanical drain cleaner to clear clogs altogether. These machines are easy to use and clear away any type of clog quickly.

    For a badly clogged drain, you may need to hire a professional plumber that can clear out the drain with special equipment.

  • What are the different water heater sizes?

    Water heaters come in a variety of sizes, and the size you need depends on how much water your household uses. Here are some general water heater size guidelines:

    • If you use less than 40 gallons of water per day, a 40- or 50-gallon water heater will be large enough.
    • If you use between 40 and 80 gallons of water per day, a water heater with a capacity of 60 or 80 gallons will probably be required.
    • If you use over 80 gallons of water per day, an 85-gallon water heater should provide an adequate supply.

    Note that these are general guidelines only; how much water your household actually uses may vary. To be sure you have the right water heater size, consult with a plumbing professional.

Reasons to Invest in Toilet Replacement

Replacing a toilet is not something many homeowners think about doing on a regular basis, however, there are many reasons why someone would choose to replace their toilet over fixing it. Here are some reasons you should invest in a new toilet:

  • If your current toilet is always malfunctioning and needs repair, a new unit will help save money.
  • Constantly clogging toilets should also be replaced since a toilet that always clogs is a huge inconvenience.
  • Old and outdated toilets should be replaced by water-efficient or dual-flush models to conserve water and save money.
  • Cracked porcelain is next to impossible to fix and requires a new toilet replacement.
  • During a bathroom renovation, you may want to consider a new toilet installation to match the decor of the new bathroom.
