What Causes Toilets to Clog?

There’s a seemingly endless list of reason why clogged toilets occur. However, most toilet clogs occur because of two categories:

Simple Clogs
These are clogs typically caused by organic material, and are also often caused by non-water soluble items like diapers, personal products, and too much toilet paper getting caught in the toilet.

Foreign Objects
As the name suggests, this is caused when a foreign object is stuck in the toilet. These are often caused by children who put something in the toilet that they shouldn’t, like toys, shampoo bottles, toothbrushes, and even cell phones!

How to Prevent Clogged Toilet Repair?

The best way to prevent clogged toilets in your home is by following these easy and helpful tips and tricks:

  • If you have small children in your home, try installing a childproof lock on the toilet bowl.
  • Place a garbage can next to the toilet for non-water soluble items.
  • Purchase a brand of toilet paper that is not so thick.
  • Flush twice if needed.

By taking these preventative measures, you can greatly reduce your chances of needing clogged toilet service in the future.
