A blocked toilet is a common issue in any household or business and is very inconvenient, especially if you only have one toilet in your building. Disaster Blaster Plumbing has many years of experience in the various methods used to clear blocked toilets, with high-pressure water jetting being one of the best solutions for a blocked toilet drain.
Tips in Preventing Drain Blockage from Occurring in the
Regular drain maintenance and drain inspections help to prevent problems before they develop and can be useful in preventing damage to your drainage systems.
Disaster Blaster Plumbing Services can carry out regular annual drain maintenance to keep your drains clear and in good running order, including water jetting to minimise the build up of debris.
Trees or Shrubs
Don’t plant trees or shrubs near your sewer line
Environmental Root Killer
Occasionally pour environmentally friendly root killer down your drain to get rid of existing roots and prevent regrowth
Grease or Fats
Try not to pour grease or fats down the drain as it will solidify in your pipes builds up and clog the drain
Don’t clean that brush full of hair in the toilet or bathroom sink
It’s best to toss food waste into the trash or compost pile. Make sure the disposal is running when you feed it food scraps
Cotton Balls or Wet Wipes
Don’t flush cotton balls or wet wipes down toilets. They don’t dissolve and will cause clogs. Place a waste basket in the bathroom so your guests won’t flush these items
How to Deal with Overflowing Toilets
Stop Water Filling
If you have an overflowing toilet, it is possible to stop your toilet from filling by pressing down on the flapper valve and lifting the float within the overflowing toilet’s cistern
Shut Water Supply & Call Plumber
If the water level does not drop, you will need to shut off the water supply to the toilet from the mains toilet water supply valve; this is typically found behind the wall or underneath the floor around the toilet. Once you have done this, it is time to call in the blocked drain experts
