Do you have a blocked toilet or does your toilet not flush properly?

Sometimes through daily usage, a toilet becomes blocked and will not flush properly. This occurs because the effluent in the u-trap of the toilet exceeds the water weight used in a typical flush.

With the debris caught in the toilet’s u-trap, each time the toilet is flushed the bowl fills with water often times overflowing onto the bathroom floor. This blockage can be pushed through the u-trap allowing the toilet to cycle completely with the help of a Toilet Plunger.

Toilet Plunger

A Toilet Plunger forces water, which does not compress against the blockage. The water then pushes the blockage through the u-trap of the toilet allowing the water to flow freely. Most blockages can be passed using a Toilet Plunger. Toilet Auger If the blockage is unable to be passed with a Toilet Plunger then another option that can be used is an Auger or what is commonly called a Plumbers Snake.

An Auger sends a spring coil through the entire u-trap of the toilet down to about 3 feet, a length that should break up any blockages located inside the toilet.
