Common Reasons Why Toilets Get Blocked

toilet blockage

Toilets are essential plumbing fixtures in every home. Blockages in them can be tough to deal with, which can result in a significant level of frustration. While it may be possible to clear minor blockages using a toilet plunger, this is not always the best way to remove the clogs. Sometimes, the toilet blockage may be so severe that you would need to call in a professional plumber to handle the problem.

We at Everlast Plumbing offer high-quality plumbing solutions and can handle all types of toilet blockages expertly and efficiently. While we focus on providing high-quality services, we also maintain very affordable pricing. This makes it easy for you to call us whenever you are facing any plumbing issue. Just as it is essential to call in a professional plumber as soon as you face any toilet blockages, it is also necessary to understand what causes these issues.


Common Causes of Toilet Blockages


  • Low-flow toilet installations

If you have old-style toilet features on your property, they may not have sufficient pressure to clear the drains and traps, which causes frequent clogs. You must check the manufacture date of the toilet. This is generally mentioned at the back of the fixture. If it was manufactured several decades ago, you might have a low flow toilet. While it is not necessary to replace the feature immediately, you should consider caring for it properly. Avoid flushing down toilet paper or any other items that can potentially result in blockages.


  • Flushing non-flushable items

It is essential to understand that a toilet is designed to dispose of only certain types of materials. Flushing excessive amounts of wet wipes, toilet paper, cotton balls, feminine sanitary products, etc., causes a blockage that results in frequent backups. Make sure that all of your family members are aware that these products should not be discarded in the toilet. It’s best to place a dustbin in the toilet to discard all these items.


  • Clogged traps

The traps are curved installations fitted under the toilets, and they prevent the gases from infiltrating the indoor areas of your property. Whenever any non-flushable products block the pitfalls, they cause a backup, and the gases reverse from the system into your home. It is vital to make sure that the traps are clear through maintenance and cleaning them regularly.


  • Clogs in plumbing vents

All modern toilets have roof vent systems that channel the fresh air into your plumbing system. This helps to boost the flashing pressure. If any blockages form in the roof vents due to things like leaves, debris, and even animal nests that can reduce the flushing pressure and cause clogs regularly. It is best to hire a plumber to clear the events at regular intervals.
