A blocked toilet is a very common issue in houses and commercial areas in Alexandra Hills. Property owners can find it a daunting task to resolve, especially when it overflows, traps water, and floods the surrounds.
In the 20 years we’ve spent serviceing Alexandra Hills and the greater Brisbane region, the wrong thing being flushed has been the most common cause of a blocked toilet. This includes:
- Sanitary pads and tampons
- “Flushable” wipes
- Excessive amounts of toilet paper
A blocked toilet needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. You can always try to unblock it on your own but if the issue is not resolved easily using a plunger, it’s time to call in the experts.
Clearing the blockage yourself
Before you begin trying to unblock the toilet yourself, make sure you work to protect the surrounding floor using paper towel, newspaper, rags or old towels, particularly if you have a hardwood or laminate floor. It’s also best to pop on a pair of rubber gloves to protect against germs and other nasties that may be present in the toilet water.
If you can see what is causing the blockage, the best course of action is to remove the object and dispose of it appropriately. If it’s out of reach, a plunger may be enough to clear the blockage.
The process of unblocking a toilet is not particularly pleasant – and if it’s not easily achieved using a plunger, it could be an indication of a bigger issue. If you don’t feel confident resolving the issue yourself, it’s time to seek help from an experienced plumber.
