Clogged Toilet Prevention Tips
Perhaps the most frequent yet bothersome plumbing problems one experiences is a clogged toilet. It can be very disruptive to a household, especially one that primarily uses a single bathroom. If you want to avoid having to call an emergency plumber in the middle of the night to deal with a clogged toilet, try some of these things:
- Try to cut down on the amount of toilet paper used
- Consider switching to a thinner toilet paper
- Flush more than once if necessary
- Don’t flush non-biodegradable items like diapers
- Install a child lock to prevent kids from flushing various objects
Following the advice above may be enough to prevent most cases of clogged toilets. If you find that your toilet clogs up spontaneously and for no apparent reason, there may be a reason to be concerned. If this is the case, contact a plumber to investigate the problem.
