Which Toilet Paper is Right for Your Toilet?
The choice of toilet paper may not be something you have given much thought, but your choice could be causing your toilet to clog unnecessarily. You may prefer the thicker brand of paper, but this is the kind that can easily clog your system. Instead, look for the paper that feels like it is not as strong as others. In fact, the toilet paper that states it is biodegradable is the best kind for your toilet.
It is also important for you and others that use your toilet to use only the amount that is needed. Most people tend to use too much paper, which is only going to clog up the system. In fact, clogs that are caused by too much toilet paper are the most difficult to get unclogged.
Do You Need a Professional to Unclog a Toilet?
When you have a clogged toilet and the plunger isn’t working to free it up, it is time to call in the professional. The biggest mistake that you can make is to stick a coat hanger or another piece of metal down your toilet to try to get it unclogged. Metal like this can damage the porcelain or even puncture your sewer line if you stick it down too far.
The professional plumber knows the inner workings of the toilet and sewer system and will use their knowledge, as well as the right tools, to get your. The fact is that your clogged toilet may be deep down in your sewer line and the only way to reach it is with the right tools.
How Can You Prevent Clogged Toilets?
As stated above, the toilet paper you choose for your household is very important. Choosing biodegradable toilet paper will reduce your risk of a clogged toilet, but you must also be certain the correct amount is being used. By talking to members of your household, especially young children, about how much to use and what not to flush down the toilet, you will be able to reduce the need to call us for a clogged toilet. It is also a good idea to have your sewer drains cleaned once a year.
