Instructions On Unclogging A Toilet

by admin on June 3, 2010 · 0 comments

Having a clogged toilet can be a hassle. Luckily, there are ways to get a clogged toilet working again without having to call a plumber and spend a lot of money. For most of these situations, all you need to do is spend about five dollars on a good plunger.

Your first thought may be to turn to chemicals to fix the drainage problem, but it is not recommended. Most chemicals that promise to unclog your toilet will not work, leaving your drain full of chemicals. The chemicals that happen to work will take forever to, so you will be without a toilet for a while. If you do decide to use chemicals for your drainage problem, remember to never mix two different chemicals together. This can harm both you and your toilet.

If a person's toilet will not drain at all then it is fully clogged, but if it is draining slowly, it is only partially clogged. A toilet that is completely clogged will fill with water and probably overflow, creating a mess all over your bathroom floor. If you are dealing with a complete clog, you will need to wait ten to fifteen minutes for the water level to recede a bit. After that, use the plunger to unclog it.

Do not try to flush the toilet again before you plunge it, or you will end up with a mess. To create a better seal, pull the rubber flange out on the plunger. When you are fixing the clogged toilet, be sure to have a few towels handy to clean up any water that splashes out. You may have to plunge the toilet several times before it starts draining again. Always remember to keep the head of the plunger totally submerged in the toilet water while you are plunging.

The best way of fixing the drainage problem with a toilet is to use a plunger. The majority of the time it is all you need to get the job done. However, if you have attempted to fix the problem and nothing seems to work, you may need to have a professional look at it.
