A clogged toilet is one of the most frustrating things for a homeowner. The clog could be caused by any number of things if you have children. Having a large family share a bathroom or two causes clogs on a regular basis. We have experience unclogging toilets, and can even install a new toilet for you if needed. Our emergency unclogging services are here to help at your home or office building.
Stephens’ plumbing professionals are available 24/7 to perform toilet repair, including running toilet repair, unclogging toilets, fixing a leaking toilet, toilet installation and replacement, and toilet leak repair on both residential and commercial toilets.
A main reason that toilets clog is that people use the incorrect toilet paper. This issue can be made worse when people continuously use more toilet paper than is necessary.
People should only use as much toilet paper as needed. To flush an unwarranted amount of toilet paper in the toilet can easily cause a large clog that can take a good deal of time to dispel. The ideal toilet paper to use is soft and could come to bits very easily. If you are unable to tell which toilet paper fits this by feel, then look for the biodegradable labels on packages. If the toilet paper is made of fine layers it will be easily broken down by the water, leading to fewer clogs than bulkier toilet paper would.
You can call on us for the following toilet services:
You should call us if your toilet plunger doesn’t get through the clog. A huge mistake commonly made is attempting to remove the clog by pushing disassembled wire clothing hangers down into the drain. This would likely hurt the porcelain in the toilet as well as puncture the sewer line in the case that it is already delicate. You don’t know how deep the clog goes, so it could be solely in the toilet or further along in the sewer line.
Without being able to see it would be hard to tell if the clog needs mastery and refinement in order to be removed properly. We are experienced and have the tools and equipment needed to do so while steering clear of damaging the pipes and toilet.
As explained before, limit your toilet paper use and ensure it is the ideal kind. Ensure that children don’t attempt to flush toys or other unflushables in the toilet.
Don’t flush non-toilet paper down the toilet. Thick and heavy paper towels and items won’t break down with as much ease as the toilet was not made to adjust for this.
Having us come out to clean your sewer drain and ensure that the toilet can flush as it should about once a year is highly recommended. Preventative small maintenance tasks such as these can help a lot for preventing future clogs.
