Can You Prevent a Toilet Clog?
Toilet clogs that are caused by something being stuck in the drain are usually caused by things that get flushed down the toilet. These clogs are preventable with a few simple habit changes. Here are some tips on how to prevent a clogged toilet in the future.
Use Less Toilet Paper
Too much toilet paper can create a toilet clog. Using less toilet paper will not only prevent a clogged drain, but can also save you a lot of money on toilet paper. If you have to use a lot of toilet tissue for the job, consider flushing only half of it down the drain at once.
Don’t Flush Everything Down the Toilet
The only items that should be flushed down the drain are human waste and toilet paper. Any else has the potential to get stuck in the drain and cause a toilet clog. Items such as diapers, baby wipes and feminine hygiene products should be thrown in the trash and not flushed down the toilet. Smaller items such as dental floss, cotton balls and Q-tips can also cause a toilet clog.
