What Causes Toilet Clogs for Tampa FL Homeowners?
This is one of the most common questions we get from concerned homeowners. There are many potential causes of a clogged toilet, and sometimes, more than one issue contributes to your problem.
Typically, toilet clogs are caused by:
- Flushing something insoluble: By accident or without thinking, you may have flushed cotton balls, “flushable” wipes, or even a child’s unseen small toy. These items won’t break down in water, causing toilet clogs and possibly backups.
- Something stuck in the U-pipe: This toilet drain trap stays filled with water, preventing sewer odors from coming into your home. Sometimes, the trap captures excess toilet paper or other items mentioned, causing a toilet blockage.
- Buildup in the pipes: Skipping plumbing maintenance can increase the risk of clogs, especially in homes with older plumbing systems.
- Faulty toilet flappers: These round rubber gaskets inside toilet tanks may not close completely if they’re broken or there are problems with the connecting chain.
- Low flushing pressure: Low-flow toilets sometimes don’t produce enough force to completely force all the toilet paper down the toilet. You may need a toilet upgrade or drain cleaning service if this is the source of toilet clogs.
- Roof vent blockages: Vents allow fresh air into the plumbing system. They may be blocked by leaves or other debris. We can clear your toilet vent out safely for you, restoring proper function to your home’s toilets.
- Sewer line issues: If the sewer line is cracked, collapsed, or damaged by tree roots, wastewater won’t properly flow out of your home’s plumbing systems, causing your toilets to clog and potentially back up.
- Unused plumbing: If you travel frequently or live in other areas for part of the year, you may find plumbing issues, like toilet clogs, upon your return. If you hear strange sounds or experience slow drains, contact Ben Franklin for a plumbing inspection or Tampa water jetting service to clean your pipes. We can diagnose and repair plumbing issues before you experience toilet problems.
