He has unclogged many a toilet in the San Diego area!
Tackling a Toilet Clog on Your Own
- Assess the Situation: Determine the severity of the clog. If the water level in the toilet bowl is rising but not overflowing, stop using the toilet immediately to prevent any further flooding. You may be able to just let it sit for a while and then flush again but be ready to turn the water off in the back. When the toilet paper disintegrates it might loosen up.
- Use a Plunger: A plunger is a handy tool for dislodging minor toilet clogs. Ensure there’s enough water in the bowl to cover the plunger’s rubber cup. Place the plunger over the drain hole and push down firmly, then pull up quickly. Repeat this motion several times until the water starts draining. This should clear most simple clogs.
- Add Hot Water and Dish Soap: If plunging doesn’t work, try adding hot water (not boiling) and a small amount of dish soap into the toilet bowl. Let it sit for a few minutes. The heat and soap can help break down the clog.
- Use a Toilet Auger (Snake): If the clog persists, a toilet auger or snake might be necessary. Insert the snake into the toilet drain and twist the handle while pushing it down. Keep rotating and pushing until you feel the resistance of the clog. Then, gently pull the snake back while continuing to twist, which should help break up the clog.
- Be Cautious with Chemicals: Chemical drain cleaners can be harsh and potentially damage your pipes over time. If you decide to use one, make sure to follow the instructions carefully and use it sparingly.
Prevent Future Clogs: To prevent future clogs, avoid flushing large amounts of toilet paper at once or anything non-flushable. Keep a wastebasket nearby for items like wipes, cotton balls, and dental floss.
