Don't Be Stopped by Clogged Toilets!

There are few outlets in your home more important than the toilet, for reasons we’re sure are obvious. Problems with your toilet need to be corrected quickly, and by far the most common issues faced here in Marietta, GA is the problems of clogs. Sometimes clogs are formed by normal human waste and/or an excess of toilet paper, in which case you can usually fix it with the judicious application of a plunger. But other times, the clog can be formed by more troublesome components, in which case a plumber is in order. Such components can include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Q-tips and Cotton Balls. These are commonly used for beauty and hygiene purposes, and it can feel quite natural to just flush them down the toilet when you’re done. But they can expand when wet and are difficult to break up, resulting in a clogs.
  • Feminine Hygiene Products. Similarly, feminine hygiene products are often designed to absorb moisture rather than breaking up, making them a serious problem when flushed down the toilet.
  • Children’s Toys. It sounds absurd, but we get a large number of calls from people whose kids have flushed plastic toys or other objects down the toilet as part of some innocent game and had them get stuck. Teach your kids to refrain from doing so, or put locks on your toilet seat to stop this practice.
  • Kleenex and Paper Towels. Toilet paper is designed to gradually dissolve in water. Tissues and paper towels are not. It they get flushed down the toilet, they could cause you a lot of difficulty.

The best way to avoid these kinds of clogs is to simply be mindful of what goes into your toilet and ensure that nothing is placed there that can clog it up. In the event you do experience a toilet clog, call the pros at Quick Action Plumbers to get it fixed!
