A toilet randomly overflowing is a nightmare scenario that we all hope will never happen to us. When a toilet overflows it can create serious problems for homeowners, not only a temporary inconvenience. Overflowing toilets create water damage in the bathroom and can, in the worst cases, leak through to the rooms beneath.
There are a couple of causes that result in an overflowing toilet, including blockages, damage plumbing and vents.
Blockages and clogs can happen for obvious reasons like too much toilet tissue and non-flushable items being flushed. They can happen suddenly or build up overtime. Some blockages are due to the flush not being powerful enough. This is sometimes a result of dual flush not being set up properly and the smaller flush not being strong enough to push away waste.
It’s not only blockages in the home but also blockages in the sewer pipes that can cause issues. Avoid flushing non-biodegradble items and rinsing food into the kitchen sink. These can build into giant blockages beneath the street.
Any kind of damage to the plumbing system or vents can also cause a toilet to overflow. When waste and water can’t get out the normal way, they back up through the nearest exit. Your toilet bowl. Toilet vents are installed to allow air to flow into the plumbing system to replace he air going out with each flush. If positioned on a roof or exterior wall, they sometimes become blocked with leaves and debris.
