How to Fix a Clogged Toilet in Calgary
When it comes to toilet clogs, repairs can vary in both price and the equipment used to remove the blockage. We get lots of calls at Sewerheroes for fixing clogged toilets.
Fixing A Clogged Toilet
In simple cases where the clog is in the toilet trap, we can just auger your toilet and be on our way.
In other cases if the clog is in the toilet line, the toilet would have to be removed to put an electric auger down the drain and sometimes a camera.
Fixing A Toilet Blocked By Foreign Object
Another scenario that causes a clogged toilet is if something has been dropped into the toilet and become lodged in place.
You wouldn’t believe all the things we have retrieved from toilets but a few examples are: toothbrush, pen, and dentures (yes, I said dentures. 😂)
In these cases we would have to pull the toilet as well to complete the repairs…
Unclogging The Toilet Yourself
Try Waiting… Leave the clogged toilet alone for a while and make sure that no one uses it.
Gravity is your friend in the plumbing world and is the force at work in all drains. If you can, wait it out overnight and the water in the bowl will exert its own pressure on the blockage.
Gravity will often due the trick and then you can flush to see if it worked itself out.
Plunging, be gentle on the first plunge to clear the air from the plunger bell. Keep enough water in the bowl so that it is covering the plunger. Try to maintain a seal on the plunger and plunge it in and out. It may take some time, so be patient.
As always, if these solutions don’t remedy your problem, give us a call and we will be able to give you a quote over the phone and provide quick service to restore use of your toilet. (403) 354-4376
