One of the major inconveniences in life – a blocked toilet! If you thinks it’s a minor blockage grab your rubber gloves and a plunger. If you are not having any success or if you are experiencing recurring problems with your blocked toilet schedule an appointment or call us directly at 24 Hour Plumber where we aim to see you within 24 hours.
Signs of a blocked toilet include water draining from the bowl very slowly or the contents of the toilet have not flushed away and rising to the top of the toilet. Alternatively, after flushing the bowl is almost empty with no water present.
There are a number of reasons why your toilet becomes blocked. The first and most obvious is putting unsuitable materials down your toilet such as baby wipes, sanitary products, and hand wipes. Occasionally, a build up of toilet paper and limescale can increase the likelihood of a blocked toilet. This can be mostly prevented by regular cleaning and using a drainer cleaner product.
There may also be a larger blockage further down your plumbing system. This will require the assistance of a professional plumbing team to unclear this blockage.
