Your Guide Towards Healthier Toilet in 2022

Your Guide Towards a Healthier Toilet in 2022

  1. Of all sorts of trouble that can happen in your plumbing, there’s likely nothing more horrible than dealing with a blocked toilet. This problem has the potential to gobble up your budget if you don’t use it properly or you take a problem lightly. If you don’t want to have a bad day this year from getting caught up with this mess, read our guide below on how you can keep your toilets free from all sorts of clogs.
  1. #1 Make sure your tank has enough water
  2.  
  3. Whatever needs to go down requires pressure. Same goes with any waste that you need to dispose of off the toilet. If the toilet tank is not completely filled to capacity when the toilet is flushed, there won’t be enough pressure to clear the bowl. Make sure that the supply valve is in the open position. If it is, try replacing the valve. You can also check if there’s a leak. If there is, call blocked toilet repair Sydney to inspect further. 
  4.  
  5. #2 If your toilet is not powerful enough, replace it with newer model
  6.  
  7. Pressure affects your toilet’s capacity to push the waste down the line. If you have a low flush toilet, then that’s prolly the reason why you can’t clear the bowl effectively. 
  8.  
  9. Low flush toilets are a great way to cut down on the amount of water being used to flush the toilet, which keeps water bills as low as possible. However, while this helps your water usage low, we often see these types of toilets causing problems with low water pressure. Their design just lacks the necessary pressure to push waste all the way down the sewer. So if you use toilet paper, be careful in flushing them altogether as they can easily make your toilet unable to flush. Do it one at a time. If you can’t clear the bowl on your first flush, do a double flush to ensure the tissue goes deep down the drain. But if you can, you might just want to limit your use of toilet paper since they can only do more harm in your drainage and sewer lines anyway. You might also want to look into upgrading your toilet to a newer model that saves water without loss of efficiency.
  10.  
  11. #3 Clear hard water buildup
  12.  
  13. While water in Sydney is considered soft, there are still places that have hard water or have abnormal high mineral count. Minerals can accumulate in your pipe and over time narrows the gap that the water can pass through. The harder your water, the more minerals will accumulate in your plumbing system, and the more likely your pipe will have a hard time flushing and distributing water to other fixtures. If you’re not sure whether minerals are interfering with your toilet’s capacity to flush efficiently, ask the blocked toilet plumber to confirm this and get rid of the buildups. 
  14.  
  15. #4 Check the trapway for blockage
  16.  
  17. A trapway is a curving channel inside the base of a toilet that leads from the hole at the bottom of the bowl to the drainpipe. When a toilet refuses to flush and a choke does not exist in the drainpipe, the stoppage must be in the trapway. You can confirm whether a clog is in the toilet’s trap or further down in the drain by checking the other drains in your home. Bathrooms, toilets, sinks, and tubs almost always drain out into the same main drain pipe, so if the drains are working without a problem, then the clog most likely lies in the toilet’s trap. If you’re lucky, you might just be able to clear a minor clog this far up the drainline using a plunger. If not, try snaking the trapway until you’re able to dislodge the clog.
  18.  
  19. #5 Dispose of flushables wipes in the bin
  20.  
  21. One of the greatest threats to wastewater blockages is the flushing of wet wipes. In fact it’s the number one contributor of clogs in the wastewater system. While they bear the logo flushable, doesn’t mean it will dissolve on the water. And while it may also seem reasonable that whatever you wipe on your rear end should go down the toilet, but unfortunately it’s just not the case. Wipes will only cause expensive damage to your plumbing. They can easily cause a major backup, especially when your toilet is already not in good condition.
  22.  
  23. #6 Replace older piping
  24.  
  25. Failing pipes can create clog problems in the toilet as well. Usually, slow drains in multiple toilets or other drains in your home is your telltale sign the problem may be bigger. This can be costly over time and is a warning sign that it’s time to call the blocked toilet drain professionals for further investigation. If they find out that your pipes are damaged or at risk of failing, you may need to consider a complete pipe replacement to address issues with clogs not just in your toilet, but as well as all the drains.
  26.  
  27. #7 Make sure your septic system is not in bad shape
  28.  
  29. If you live in an area with a septic system, then all the more that you should be careful about your flushing habits. Sluggish-moving septics or systems that are stalling can cause toilet clogging in your home. The most common reason for this is system overuse. This means that you and your family are using more water or flushing more waste than what your septic can handle. As septic nightmares can happen in an instant, it’s best to avoid unnecessary flushing. If it has been years that you’ve had your septic pumped out, contact the septic tank pumping professional right away before it affects the efficiency of your toilet to move waste down the sewer line. 
  30.  
  31. #8 Trace the roots in your front yard
  32.  
  33. If you don’t want tree roots to become a problem when you flush your toilet, take a walk outside and use your investigative skills. Trace where the roots are crawling towards or if there’s any wet spots where your sewer line runs. When tree roots grow underground, they can easily find your pipes especially if they have leaks, or even small gaps. As they continue to grow, they can break into the pipes and clog them up. Not only will your toilet have a hard time pushing the waste down, but as well as your other fixtures connected to the sewer line.
  34.  
  35. #9 Sign up for routine inspection
  36.  
  37. Last but not the least, sign up for routine inspection. Having a skilled plumber at home to look at inner workings of your toilet and to do a drain inspection to check the condition of your drain and sewer line. Doing so will help ensure all the key components of your toilet are optimally working. They will also be able to tell if you need to install upgrades or replace some parts or the toilet itself which is more cost-savings in the long run.

What should you do?

Don’t leave your toilet to luck this year. Your blocked toilet will never miraculously resolve itself. You can only hope that it will, so you will be spared from splashes and overflow. But, it’s just not the case. So, if there’s anything you can do to avoid problems from cropping up, don’t delay! If you think it’s already too late because you’ve been frequently having trouble with your toilet slowly flushing, or not flushing at all, speak to our team for further inspection. Not only are we able to determine issues in your toilet, but as well as spot problems in your pipeline which may be the reason why your toilets are acting up. Waiting for another thing to happen will only risk your entire plumbing from completely collapsing.
