The Main Cause of Toilet Clogs
You might be surprised to find the number one cause of clogged toilets is actually toilet paper. Toilet paper is designed specifically for flushing, but only if used correctly.
We recommend keeping the quantity of the toilet paper you use to a minimum. Don’t flush huge wads of toilet paper, which can easily jam up in your pipes. Also, invest in a better quality paper. Low-grade toilet papers don’t dissolve as they should. Higher quality brands are tested for their ability to break down easily in water. Shop for a soft, biodegradable paper that’s easy on your septic system.
Pro Tips for Preventing Clogged Toilets
Just like any complicated piece of equipment, toilets need special care and attention to operate properly. Here’s some professional advice to keep your toilet flushing like it should:
- Clean your toilet regularly with a mild soap that won’t ruin the porcelain.
- Look for leaks, cracks and corrosion every time you clean.
- Fix running or leaking toilets right away.
- Don’t unclog your toilet with harsh, chemical drain cleaners.
- Teach children not to flush foreign objects.
- Use a toilet seat lid-lock to discourage small children from flushing things they shouldn’t.
- Choose your toilet paper wisely.
- Don’t flush napkins, paper towels, baby wipes, cotton balls, q-tips, or feminine products.
- Keep a good plunger on hand for minor clogs.

Should a Professional Unclog My Toilet?
A well-designed plunger can usually solve a minor clog. But when plunging doesn’t cut it, don’t be embarrassed to call in the pros! People try all sorts of things to unclog their toilet. But shoving a coat hanger down the drain or using harsh chemicals can wreak havoc on your plumbing. These options can damage porcelain, puncture vulnerable lines, and weaken sewer pipes.
A professional can discover how deep the clog is and address the issue correctly. Delicate work, expertise, and special equipment can solve the issue without making things worse. And, if needed, your specialist can recommend alternative options like toilet replacement.
