Clogged toilets are one of the most common problems seen by our professional Orange County and Los Angeles plumbers. However, it is often an issue that homeowners can easily fix on their own without hiring out expert assistance. There are a number of things you can do to repair a clogged toilet. Below is a list of tips from our Orange County and Los Angeles plumbers.
The first thing you will want to do is turn off the water at the valve. The valve is typically located underneath the toilet tank. This is an important step because it will prevent the toilet from overflowing.
The next thing you will need to do is start the plunging. Place the plunger over the drain hole. If there is not enough water in the toilet, then we recommend pouring some water in before you start plunging.
Push the plunger up and down. Make sure that you do not break the suction. Our plumbers recommend that you repeat this a few times.
Plunging the toilet a few times should remove the stoppage. However, if the toilet is still blocked up, then you will need to continue to repeat steps two and three until the stoppage is removed. If you still unable to correct the problem, then it’s time to call an expert.
