Steps to Fix a Blocked Toilet

Not sure if you need to call a plumber to handle your Toowoomba toilet blockage? Blocked toilets can be tricky in some instances. Try these steps to fix the problem on your own:

Make sure there is water in the toilet bowl – enough to cover the plunger head at least halfway

Plunge the toilet using a rapid up and down motion

Flush the toilet. If the clogged toilet has been fixed, the water will go down the drain

If the blockage is still persistent and the water level is rising, turn off the isolation tap next to the toilet

Is your toilet still blocked? Try adding one cup of baking soda to the bowl, followed by three litres of boiling water. Slowly pour in two cups of white vinegar. The fizz should help clear the blockage.

In some instances, simply adding hot water and a bit of dish soap can do the trick. The hot water will dissolve bunched toilet paper, and soap may help lubricate the mass and move it along the pipe.

Chances are good that an auger or high pressure water jetter will be necessary to remove any blockage that has formed in the sewer pipe itself. Our Toowoomba toilet plumbers have this equipment on hand. The problem may also be deeper in your plumbing system, and our plumbing experts will be able to locate the issue and remedy it quickly.

In the end, blocked toilets do not need to be frustrating. If you cannot handle it on your own, call our Toowoomba blocked toilet plumbers at X Factor Plumbing & Earthmoving Pty Ltd today on 1300 091 878.
