Why Do Toilets Become Blocked?

  • too much toilet paper trying to be flushed away
  • attempting to flush away “flushable” wet wipes in the toilet
  • children dropping toys and other foreign objects into the toilet
  • trying to flush away disposable baby nappies
  • faulty valves in toilet cistern not allowing enough water to be flushed

Remember that a toilet is designed purely to flush away toilet paper, urine and faeces and nothing else.

What Do You Do If You Have a Blocked Toilet?

If you have a plunger at home for plumbing emergencies, then you can try to clear the blockage by vigorous plunging.

Plunging a toilet is not hard if you have the stomach for it. To plunge your toilet you should do the following:

  • insert the plunger into the toilet until you feel it seal across the toilet pan outlet
  • carefully raise the plunger up and down against the outlet creating resistance
  • plunge up and down about ten times and then remove the plunger to see if the water begins to drain away
  • if the water level has not dropped to the normal level begin another ten plunges

If the plunging does not work then its time to contact Whywait Plumbing so call now (07) 5580 4311 to get your toilet professionally unblocked and checked for the reasons why you are experiencing a blocked toilet.
