There can be innumerable reasons for a blocked toilet, so first, we try to find out the problem. Experience has taught us that if your home water supply has more minerals, it might lead to clogging issues. This is known as hard water, which contains enough minerals to calcify, turning into a thick white substance that’s difficult to remove.
We have also found foreign objects like tissues, baby wipes and razors, preventing the toilet from flushing. The pipeline is naturally clogged when things keep piling up, and the water rises back up instead of flowing down.
In some cases, the problem is more serious, involving corroded pipes that need replacing. Despite regular maintenance, all pipes wear down after a few decades, so our plumbing team carries relining materials just in case. We’ll determine the extent of the damage before choosing an appropriate pipe material based on your surroundings.
Most people use a plunger to deal with a blocked toilet, but our methods are more sophisticated. We train our plumbers to use the latest gadgets, helping us quickly locate the problem. One of our popular methods involves sending a camera inside the pipe to find the substances responsible for the blockage.
Depending on the extent of the clog, running hot water down the pipe could help clear it. But if it doesn’t, we remove some water from the bowl and pour our special baking soda and vinegar mixture down the pipe.
