Ways To Free Your Toilet From Being Clogged

Have you ever experienced how annoying it can be if your toilet gets clogged? It is an unpleasant thing that you need to take some actions about it immediately. Otherwise, it is bothering to see the water keeps spinning over the toilet’s basin rather than falling into the drain. The clogging is because the sewage in the toilet. The first immediate action to overcome this problem is by getting the plunger and fishing it into the bottom of your toilet.

Toilet clogs that are caused by semi-solid objects, such as hair or a toy, creates resistance in the auger as it grabs hold of the object. If you feel this resistance, retrieve the object by rewinding the cable. If the clog is made up of accumulated objects, such as toilet paper, try passing the coil of the auger back and forth through the clog to break it up.

You will then need to plunge the plunger into the drain so that you can remove the blockage. Most people hate to do this because the dirty water might splash into their bodies when they are plunging the toilet. Therefore, many people prefer to stand in the sink, bathtub or other fixtures to make sure that they are far enough from the dirty water. Unfortunately, some dirty splashes will always spill out into their bodies, no matter how careful they try. It is even worsted that after all, you still cannot dislodge the blockage.

It is always better to avoid such inconvenient circumstances. Here are some simple preventive steps that you need to apply if you want to free yourself from dislodging your clogged toilet:

1. You should dispose any toilet paper into the toilet basin after you are using it. You should not dispose them into the toilet, especially if the toilet paper you use is excessive. Otherwise, you will create a sewage blockage that causes the toilet clogged.

2. Similar to toilet paper, you should never flush in any paper towel into the toilet. The paper tower can absorb liquid in a large amount, but it cannot break down quickly. Therefore, you should avoid flushing them into the toilet at all cost. Otherwise, a big problem has been waiting for you.

One great way to prevent the clogging is by applying a drain cleaner on a regular basis. You should get a cleaner that is strong enough to dislodge the sewage. You can use an industrial drain cleaner to give the best result. This cleaner will dislodge any sewage so that it will not block the drain.
Conclusion
You can use these tips to make sure that the toilet will be free from any sewage and clogging. You should always remember that having preventive actions are always better than fixing the problems.I hope that learning on how to fix a clogged toilet is no longer a mystery to you as it was once for me.
