There isn't anything more frustrating or embarrassing than a clogged toilet. If your toilet clogs often, it may require costly repairs. Since nobody likes spending unnecessary money on toilet repairs, we here at The Gentlemen Plumbers have assembled some tips for your Medicine Hat plumbing, including how to prevent a clogged toilet.

Take away temptation:

If you often find yourself flushing small objects like cotton balls, wet wipes, or heavier papery products, place a trash can right next to the toilet. This should help ease the temptation to flush objects that could potentially cause a clogged toilet. By throwing away those products instead of flushing them, you could save yourself costly Medicine Hat plumbing repairs.

Use lighter toilet paper: /

If you find that you're having to deal with a clogged toilet often, it may be that you are using too much of a thick toilet paper. Flush twice if you've used a lot of toilet paper to make sure that it goes down the drain and isn't stuck, clogging your toilet.

Use a plunger correctly:

Make sure that you don't have too much water in the toilet while unclogging it and insert the plunger at an angle. When you pump with force, water should leave the toilet when you pull the plunger upward. Not plunging correctly could cause pipe damage, so be careful.

Maintain your toilet:

If you find yourself dealing with a stubborn clogged toilet often, call a professional plumber to check for serious clogs. Plumbers have tools that can help them access the pipes connected to your toilet, pulling up any materials that may be clogging your toilet. This should keep your toilet from becoming clogged too much. For Medicine Hat plumbing, The Gentlemen Plumbers are always available to help!
