Common Reasons for a Clogged Toilet
Clogged toilets are one of the more common plumbing issues you can deal with in your home - they’re also preventable. By understanding what causes them, you can be more proactive about your plumbing’s health.
- Paper Overload: Sadly there are times when you need to use more toilet paper than others. So rather than only flushing when you’re done, flush a couple of times to avoid a clog.
- Foreign Objects: There are only two solid things that should go down your toilet – toilet paper and waste. That’s it. Even when things claim to be flushable, it’s best to throw them out instead.
- Roots: Believe it or not, roots can come into the pipes and cause a backup in your lines. If your home has other drains that are backed up as well, chances are that you have to have a professional come in and take a look.
- Kids: Not only can kids use a lot of toilet paper, but they also often flush things that aren’t meant to be flushed. Having childproof locks put on your toilet seat is a good idea.
As a general rule of thumb, it’s always a good idea to have a trashcan near your toilet - this helps people get rid of items that shouldn't make their way into your plumbing. Even with all the care, you may run into a clogged toilet anyways. Before getting store-bought chemicals to fix the issue, which can worsen it, trust our plumbers for all your toilet cleaning needs.
The Benefits of New Toilet Installation
Whether regular clogs have become an issue or you’re simply looking to add some style to your bathroom, a toilet installation can go a long way to fixing that. There are plenty of toilets on the market, so choosing one that works for your home needs is essential. Always choose a toilet that offers the most benefits, including water savings and comfort. A good place to start is with a toilet that offers two flush settings, which can save water and help you get rid of waste more easily.
Another thing to consider is creature comforts like heated seats, bidets, and unique style designs. At Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we offer top-rated toilet installations that can help upgrade the look of your bathroom. We also offer standard drain cleaning in case your bathroom plumbing issues extend beyond the toilet.
