Is There a Blocked Toilet in Your Bathroom?

Plumber Near Me can get a local, professional plumber out to unblock your overflowing toilet within an hour of your call*, at any time of the day or night. We provide urgent repairs and long-term solutions on all of your toilet plumbing.

Blocked Toilet Repairs

Toilet blockages are one of the most annoying – if not the most frustrating – bathroom plumbing problems. Watching the water level build up in the toilet bowl after you flush makes your heart skip a beat.

Thinking about what’s gone wrong further down the toilet drain is even scarier. Sometimes it’s a touch nauseating. But here at Plumber Near Me, we never shy away from the unpleasant work when it comes to toilet clogs.

Our plumbers are proud to don the rubber gloves and clear your blocked toilet. That way you can leave the messy work to the experts who can get your toilet to flush properly again.

24/7 Service, 365 Days A Year

You can count on Plumber Near Me at all hours. We operate 24/7, every day of the year, so if you do need a toilet unblocked on a weekend or public holiday, we’ll be there. We can even be at your house within an hour of your call* – we’re certainly not in the business of keeping you waiting.

Whether it’s just general maintenance or there are more major issues with your blocked toilet, our team has the expertise to get it operating effectively and efficiently again. And there are no additional after-hours fees when you call Plumber Near Me.

When you’re facing a blockage, you don’t have a plunger handy, and you’ve tried everything from baking soda and vinegar to the toilet snake, we can fix it fast without a fuss.

What Causes a Blocked Toilet?

The cause of a blocked toilet can be both simple and difficult. In many cases, it certainly takes more than just using a plunger to get the toilet water back to its correct level. With Plumber Near Me helping you, we’ll solve the problem quickly so you can flush the toilet with zero stress.

Among the many possible causes of a blocked toilet are:

  • Too much toilet paper
  • Non flushable items like wet wipes or sanitary towels
  • Non-toilet paper products such as paper towels or tissues
  • Tree roots further down the sewer pipeline
  • Damaged or broken pipes
  • Objects like toys or jewellery which have been flushed accidentally

When you are faced with a toilet that’s blocked, it’s wise to remember that what you see in the toilet bowl is just the tip of the iceberg. Repeatedly flushing to try and force the blockage down can just lead to flooding and a nasty mess of dirty water.

And while it can be unpleasant to unclog a toilet, Plumber Near Me is not troubled by a bit of mess.

Our aim is to get things flowing again as quickly as possible so the water drains from the toilet bowl without a hassle. All of our solutions are long term so you won’t be staring at another clogged toilet a few days or weeks later.

How You Can Fix A Clogged Toilet

If you’re not completely against the idea of wearing rubber gloves and want to try and unclog a toilet with some simple DIY remedies, Plumber Near Me suggests these options.

The Classic Plunger

If you have a toilet plunger in your home, use this as your first plan of attack. Place the head of the plunger in the bowl. Make sure it’s fully sealed so it creates a seal. Hold the handle of the plunger and press it down over the drain. Move it in a push pull motion until you dislodge the blockage.

Of course, if you’re working without a plunger, you can try these approaches.

Pouring Hot Water Down The Toilet Bowl

For simple blockages that aren’t particularly deep in the pipes, try pouring dish soap into the toilet bowl and follow it up with very hot water. Avoid using boiling water as it can potentially crack the porcelain – the last thing you want to do! Hot water and dish soap alone may be enough to resolve a minor blockage.

Combine Baking Soda and White Vinegar

Add one cup of baking soda to the toilet bowl, followed by two cups of white vinegar. Wait about half an hour before you try to flush the toilet. The chemical reaction between the baking soda and vinegar may be able to break down the clog.

Use A Wire Coat Hanger

Generally a “last resort” option, and one where you’ll definitely want to be wearing rubber gloves, is to try and unclog a toilet with a wire coat hanger.

You’ll need to unravel the coat hanger and wrap one end with a rag. Secure the rag with a strong rubber band – this is the end that will be delving into the toilet bowl. Push the wrapped-up end of the hanger into the bowl until you find the blockage. Gently probe at it until you feel it loosen and then flush the toilet. Hopefully, this will be enough, and the clog clears without any difficulty!

Whichever of these options you choose, just remember to lay a generous amount of newspaper or towels around the base of the toilet, as it can be a messy process.

How We Can Fix A Clogged Toilet

If the hot water and dish soap, wire coat hanger or baking soda and white vinegar haven’t worked, it might be time to seek professional assistance. The best way to unclog a toilet without a plunger is with a thorough investigation by a licensed professional. You want to be sure of what the offending material is and that it is properly removed.

Plumber Near Me can perform a CCTV drain inspection, if necessary, so we know exactly what we’re dealing with. There’s a good chance that your blockage will be further down the pipeline, where a coat hanger won’t reach and a plunger can’t have an impact. And remember, even if you clear a blockage, most likely it will be flushed back down the drain and could get stuck further down the line. Future problems will definitely occur.

But with the help of our inspection, we can bring in the big guns like an electric drain cleaning machine or high-powered hydro jet. Our licensed plumbers have the experience to call upon when they bring out the heavy-duty equipment. The main objective is a long-term solution for you.
