Why Do You Have a Clogged Toilet?
A toilet that clogs frequently could be a sign of a much bigger problem with your sewer lines and you might need sewer line repairs. Generally speaking, toilets clog because there is something happening with the toilet itself. Here are some of the common causes of a clogged toilet.
Non-Flushable Items Got Flushed
There are several items that commonly get flushed down the toilet that do not dissolve and will easily clog your toilet. These items include cotton balls, baby wipes, tampons, sanitary pads, and Q-tips. These items should be thrown in the trash to prevent a clogged toilet.
The Trap is Blocked
Just below your toilet, there is a U shaped pipe called the trap. Its purpose is to prevent sewer gasses from flowing into your home through the toilet. If something gets caught or stuck in the trap, it will cause the toilet to clog.
The Toilet is Old
If your toilet was installed in the early to mid-1990s, chances are it is a low-flow toilet. These toilets were designed to conserve water, but unfortunately, they do not have very much water pressure, making them hard to flush. The age of the toilet could also be causing your toilet to clog. It might be time to consider installing a brand new toilet.
