Clogged Toilets: Common Causes & Prevention Tips
There’s no question that a clogged toilet is a nuisance. It’s a frustrating and embarrassing problem, and in some cases, it can even be a bit messy. If you’re experiencing frequent toilet clogs in your home, it may be time to evaluate some of your personal habits to get to the root of the problem.
The top three most common causes of toilet clogging include:
- Flushing items that shouldn’t be flushing
- Toilet paper overload
- Human hair or pet hair clogs (yes, this happens in toilets, too!)
In many cases, these are intentional habits that you may not have realized were harmful to the plumbing in your home. The idea that anything can be flushed down the toilet—from leftover food to the pile of dirt in your dustpan—is a common misconception. Don’t treat your toilet like a garbage receptacle. Remind yourself and other occupants of your home that this is a plumbing fixture that is as delicate as the others in your home.
Another common issue is caused by product labels that claim the item is “flushable” when it is absolutely not. Examples include baby wipes and cat litter. Regardless of what the packaging claims, you should not flush these items.
If there are children in your home, installing child safety toilet locks should prevent them from flushing un-flushable items. This is a smart choice, because unattended children have been known to wreak havoc on plumbing systems.
You may have already taken these preventative measures. If you have found them to be unfruitful in your attempt to minimize the toilet clogging issue in your home, give us a call. It’s very possible that the cause of your problem is something else, such as a mechanical malfunction of the toilet or even a tree root intrusion somewhere in your sewer line.
How to Stop a Running Toilet
A running toilet is a terrible annoyance for most homeowners. In most cases, this running goes on at all hours of the day and night, becoming impossible to ignore. Unfortunately, this issue is more than a simple irritation. A running toilet wastes an incredible amount of water, which will be quite evident in your monthly water bills.
In order to stop a running toilet, you should first know some of the most common causes, which include:
- Issues with the chain that runs between the lever and the flapper
- A dirty, warped, or broken flapper
- A float that is too high
If you have checked all of these components to ensure that they are in proper working order, but your toilet continues to constantly run, contact Tritan Plumbing to learn how we can repair your toilet and silence that troublesome sound for good.
