Blocked Toilet

Is your toiled blockedClearing A Blocked Toilet.

Well… Good luck! Seriously if you want to have a crack at clearing your toilet be prepared. You just might end up with a new coloured floor. Try This on your blocked toilet

  • First, make sure it is only the toilet that is blocked and not all your drains.
  • Now you might have to head down to your local hardware store to get an old style mop. (you know the one that looks like hair)
  • Don’t buy a short handled one.
  • Now use it like a you would a kitchen plunger. Up and down, up and down, up and down.
  • If you’re lucky, you might clear it.

If you can’t clear it or you just can’t face the possible outcome of the coloured floor call me on

Two warnings. You may push the blockage further down the drain. Be careful not to scratch the china bowl, if you do it will look like the wrinkles on the palm of your hand.

Also if you have a septic system installed, you may notice your toilet rising and then slowly falling, this could indicate a full leach drain or soakwell and if you are in an area that has a high water table, this could exacerbate the problem.

Using Chemical Drain Cleaners


I’m not going to tell you not to use them. The idea of the chemical drain cleaner is that via a chemical reaction with the water the chemical drain cleaner will degrade the cause of the blockage to such an extent that it will breakdown and clear. You hope! The problem begins when the chemical drain cleaner doesn’t clear the blockage. Be aware!

  • It will leave you with a shower, bath, sink or toilet full of caustic water.
  • Potentially dangerous to your eyes and skin
  • Metal tools don’t like it. (they might disappear in front of your eyes)
  • The chemical drain cleaner will more than likely settle into a crusty substance, compounding the blockage
  • Drain cleaners don’t work miracles
  • And what is your plan if the caustic water doesn’t clear away.

Sometimes chemical drain cleaners are a plumbers best friend. Anyway have a go but I’m sure I’ll see you on the other side. I’ll be waiting for your call because I really want to help you get that drain cleared 0423 854 687
