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 in 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 1300 616 203.

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.

Wonderful staff and great, quick service. Jordie helped us to fix an ongoing issue with one of our toilets as well as issues with water pressure in our house. He showed up on time… We highly recommend Brisbane Plumbing and Drainage.

Plumbers eel vs water jetters

Blocked drains can be a totally nightmare! The stinking smell, backing up water, slowly draining sinks, and gurgling toilets are just some of the signs of blocked drains. Luckily the drains can be cleared easily with the help of important tools in the arsenal of a plumber like a plumbers eel or water jetter. But which is better to clear a blocked drain?

The ideal method used to clear the drain depends on the cause of the blockage and its location.

Who is responsible for blocked drains?

To find out whose responsibility is it to repair blocked drains - property owner, council or tenant, a plumber should be called to identify the root cause and location of the blockage. If the blocked drains are in your property, it is your responsibility or your tenants.

However, there are a lot of grey areas and there should be ample evidence to pinpoint which party caused the damage. If the blockage is outside your property, your local council is responsible. Contact your local plumber, they can tell you who is responsible for the blocked drains and claim the expenses from the council if needed.

Pipe Relining vs Pipe Patching

There is no one best way to fix a pipe and before your plumber would even consider which method to choose, we need to determine the cause of the problem itself. In some case, blockages can be alleviated by the simple use of a high-pressure jet rodding. In order to repair a pipe with current advanced plumbing techniques, it really depends on the type and extent of the damage to the piping in question.
