Do You Have This Type of Clog?
To most homeowners, a toilet clog is a clog, is a clog, but there are a couple of different types plumbers recognize and that require different approaches. A simple clog refers to a buildup of material, whether it is toilet paper, feminine hygiene products, diapers or other non-water soluble items. A foreign object refers to something that has no business at all being inside your toilet. Quite often, this means small toys and similar objects that young children feel like flushing down the toilet. With either type of clog, professional attention is required.
Important Prevention Steps to Take
Preventing a clogged toilet is naturally the most effective way to deal with the problem. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to help. If you have a small child that is fond of experimenting with what will flush and what won’t, consider having a lock installed on the toilet seat. Regular maintenance and plumbing inspections are also a good idea, and something as simple as placing a trash can in your bathroom may discourage flushing those larger items that will produce clogs.
