What Causes A Clogged Toilet?
- Low Flow Toilets
Low flow toilets can sometimes clog up more than a regular flush toilet because of the capacity of waste it handles per flush. Not all low flow cause clogs but they do not operate like a regular flush toilet with more power.
- Too Much Waste Products
Too much waste, toilet paper, and other products can burden the toilet causing it to be unable to handle any amount of material that is put down . The only thing that should be flushed in the toilet is toilet paper. Feminine products, paper towels, flushable wipes (not so flushable), and q-tips should never be put down the toilet. This material may get stuck in the p-trap of the toilet, causing it to fail and overflow.
- Object Stuck
Objects can accidentally be dropped in the toilet, which cause a clog; hair combs, gel bottles, sponges, toothbrushes, meatballs – we have seen it all! This happens more than you think! Water will pass through but toilet paper will get stuck on the object causing it to clog.
- The Water in the Tank is Too Low
If the water in the tank is too low, the toilet will not flush properly. It’s always best practice to set the water level in the tank as high as possible. This allows for a greater volume of water per flush. This will also decrease your chances of having a clog.
If you notice your toilet is draining slowly, the venting could be an issue. It’s best to check the roof to see if there is anything obstructing the vent. Improper installation of venting may also cause a slow toilet.
- Keep a closed garbage near the toilet so that products such as Q-tips, feminine hygiene products, and baby wipes can be disposed of.
- Have a plunger handy.
- Only flush toilet paper down the toilet.
- Don’t store any objects on top of the toilet which could accidentally fall in.
- Be mindful of toddlers or children accidentally putting toys or other objects in the toilet.
