Practical blocked toilet fix

Our experienced drainage plumbers can unclog a toilet fast, quickly getting to the source of the blockage and clearing the toilet drain. Our team use a variety of methods to unblock the drain depending on what is clogging up the toilet. Common causes of toilet blockages include:

  • Too much toilet paper
  • Toys
  • Sanitary items
  • Wet wipes
  • Tree roots
  • Drain damage - cracked or broken drains
  • Hair, floss
  • Nappies

Signs of a blocked toilet

Dealing with a clogged toilet is never a great situation to be in. Things can get very messy, very fast. Catching the problems before it becomes a completely blocked drain will prevent the worst case scenario of the overflowing toilet.

Keep an eye out for these warning signs of a blocked toilet:

  • Toilet water rising in the bowl after a flush.
  • The water is slow to drain or return to the normal level.
  • Foreign objects have been flushed down the toilet drain - sanitary items, wet wipes, toys, (anything other than pee, poo or toilet paper).
  • Bubbling or gurgling from the drain.
  • Water or sewage comes up other drains when the toilet is flushed.

What to do when the toilet is clogged?

If you have a clogged toilet the first thing to do is not make the situation worse. Avoid:

  • Repeatedly flushing the toilet
  • Pouring a chemical drain cleaner in the toilet bowl - the harsh chemicals in the drain cleaners can create a potentially hazardous situation for the plumber who comes to unblock the drain.
  • Using wire or a coat hanger to clear the blockage - this can damage the drain pipe causing further blockages
Important Tip - One thing to remember if you have a go at clearing the toilet yourself - the blockage may come back up the drain.

The second thing to do is call Brisbane Plumbing and Drainage on 0488 843 224 .

Clearing a blocked toilet

If the clog is in the immediate toilet drain our plumber will usually be able to quickly clear the toilet using tools such as a closet auger or plunger. If the blockage is further along the sewer drain, other methods/tools may be used such as high-pressure water jetting or an electric eel.

Either way, we’ll get to the problem and clear the clogged drain.
