Common Causes of a Blocked Toilet
An excessive amount of paper is often the direct cause of a blocked toilet, but it may have been building for some time. As old paper and household waste collect in the pipes over time, they will decompose and turn to sludge, narrowing the opening and setting the stage for a big blockage down the road. Aside from paper and time, children often cause blocked toilets by trying to flush items that have no business being in there. This may include small toys, articles of clothing or jewellery.
The Importance of Quick Action
A blocked toilet requires immediate attention, and it’s wise to call your local plumbing expert as soon as you realise there’s a problem. If you want to try your plunger for minor blockages, you may find success but only a trained engineer should attempt to fix seriously blocked toilets. The sooner you call, the sooner the blockage will be gone and your plumbing system back to normal. If you decide that the toilet blockage isn’t serious or it only seems to affect one toilet and you wait to call for help, you will most likely make the situation worse.
What’s the Worst that Could Happen?
If you don’t take action quickly, the situation may worsen in a couple of different ways. First, if your pipes are older and have weakened with age, there is a risk for a burst pipe containing household waste from your bathroom. Pipes only last for so long, and if it’s been several years since you had yours inspected, there could be damage that causes a rupture. Second, the likelihood of sewage coming back up into your house is much greater if you don’t take care of the problem quickly.
