What do you do if you have a blocked toilet?

The first thing to do when you discover a blocked toilet is to turn off the water to the toilet cistern. Do not keep trying to flush the toilet, as it will just make the toilet bowl overflow all over your floor.

If you have a plunger at home for plumbing emergencies, then you can try to clear the blockage by vigorous plunging.

Plunging a toilet is not hard if you have a plunger and, most of all, have the stomach for it. To plunge your toilet you should do the following:

  1. insert the plunger into the toilet until you feel it seal across the toilet pan outlet
  2. carefully raise the plunger up and down against the outlet creating resistance
  3. plunge up and down about ten times, and then remove the plunger to see if the water begins to drain away
  4. if the water level has not dropped to the normal level, begin another ten plunges

If the plunging does not work, then it’s time to contact Whywait Plumbing at (07) 5580 4311 to get your toilet professionally unblocked and checked for why you are experiencing a blocked toilet.

Common reasons for a blocked toilet

A blocked toilet is usually a localised blockage within the toilet pan and the drain connection to the toilet. The five most common reasons for a blocked toilet are:

  1. too much toilet paper trying to be flushed away
  2. attempting to flush away “flushable” wet wipes in the toilet
  3. children dropping toys and other foreign objects into the toilet
  4. trying to flush away disposable baby nappies
  5. faulty valves in the toilet cistern not allowing enough water to be flushed

Remember, a toilet is not a rubbish bin and should only ever be used for flushing toilet paper, urine, and poo.
