Oro Valley Toilet Repair Issues

Toilet blockages are the most common repair problem for our Oro Valley customers. A toilet that gets filled past its capacity to flush will clog. Partial clogs can also occur where the toilet fills to the brim but does not necessarily overflow. The most common tool to unclog a toilet is with a handy plunger. You may not know the best way to plunge that clog, so below we have put together some tips.

Toilet Repair Tips

Okay Oro Valley, as mentioned, the plunger is the everyday go-to for toilet repair and clogs. The following are some pointers to help keep the job clean and efficient:

  1. The Proper Plunger — Begin by acquiring the right plunger for your toilet repair. The funnel-cup plunger will do the trick. That’s because the funnel-cup plunger creates the optimal seal between the toilet bowl and the plunger.
  2. Wear Rubber Gloves — Using gloves is an essential part of remaining hygienic and clean when unclogging a toilet. Rubber gloves such as those commonly used to clean dishes or just regular disposable types work great.
  3. Plunge Correctly — When plunging that clog, make sure to get a strong pullback just as much as the pushdown. Many folks focus on pushing the plunger down, but the pullback is what makes the vacuum to pull the clog up.
  4. Al’s Secret Tip — To help unstick the clog, just add dishwasher detergent and very hot water before plunging. We recommend 3-4 cups of hot water and detergent to help loosen the blockage. Allow 5-10 mins before going in with your plunger.

Causes of a Broken Toilet

Clogs happen for a variety of reasons . Some of the most common causes happen simply because the toilet gets overloaded. Overloading with toilet paper is a common culprit leading to clogs. For those heavy-duty toilet paper moments, it’s best to flush more than once to split the difference. Jams can also occur by to flushing down “non-flushables.” Never flush anything that cannot disintegrate down the toilet. Even flushing large amounts of hair can cause clogs. Toilets and drain lines are designed to flush liquid, soft waste, and other materials that can deteriorate quickly. So do your best to be gentle on those drains!
