Let Us Fix Your Clogged Toilet Drain

Clearing Toilet Drains in Albuquerque

A poor flush can be a sign that your toilet is partially or completely plugged. When water doesn’t rush out and clean away waste, it means that the bowl isn’t draining properly. This can be a problem because the water level will remain high and could eventually overflow. To avoid this, it’s important to clear the drain as soon as possible. Most clogs can be removed with a plunger or a plumber’s snake. However, if the clog is severe, you may need to call us to clear it for you. Either way, it’s important to act quickly to avoid any major problems.

Common Issues With Toilet Drains

If you have a clogged toilet, it’s important to act quickly to clear the blockage and restore normal operation. Otherwise, you may face costly repairs or even a sewage backup. Some common causes are:

  • Foreign objects
  • Too much toilet paper
  • Tree root invasion

DIY vs Professional

There are some drain clog situations that you should be more than capable of handling on your own. But others require a more professional eye and hand.

If you have a clogged drain, the first step is to try to use a plunger to clear it yourself. Stay away from chemical clearance because they aren’t just attacking the clog. They can also wear down the integrity of your plumbing system. If your regular plunger doesn’t work, you should call us right away. Professional plumbers are trained to handle blockages that are located deep in your plumbing lines without causing damage to your drains.

Rooting Toilet Drains

One of the most shocking clogged drain pipe culprits is tree roots! This clog is not in the toilet drain but in the sewer line connected to the toilet. At first, you’ll get warning signs such as slower drainage and gurgling sounds after you flush. When things are more urgent, it’ll start to get back up when you flush. Call a plumber right away if you notice these tell-tale signs. We will use a camera to locate the blockage in the sewer line and then take appropriate action.

Emergency Toilet Drain Cleaning Service

While some problems can wait, a clogged toilet drain is rarely one of them. Leaving a clog can cause an overflowing toilet which leads to damage to your floors, walls, and pipes. If you have a clogged toilet that won’t come free with a plunger, call in emergency plumbing to take care of the issue right away.


Tips for Maintaining Healthy Toilet Drains

Avoid Flushing Foreign Objects

One of the most common reasons for clogged toilets is that there’s something in there that should be there. Toilets are built to handle pretty much one thing – human waste. When items that don’t belong to that category end up in there, it’s a recipe for trouble. Avoid flushing feminine sanitary products, wipes, make-up wipes, and other thicker objects. If the package doesn’t specifically say it’s flushable, assume that it isn’t.You can also cause a clog by using too much toilet paper. Be conservative with your toilet paper usage each time you go to the bathroom so that you don’t overwhelm the system all at once. Your toilet can handle lots of toilet paper over time, but not too much at once.

Clean the Toilet Regularly

While you may already be cleaning your toilet for aesthetic reasons, it’s also good for the health of your drain. In fact, you may even need to clean your toilet more often than you already are.

Bleaching the toilet and scrubbing the bowl can help break down some material that would otherwise get clogged in the system.Regularly cleaning also helps you pay closer attention to how the toilet is running. You may notice small leaks that you don’t notice during the day because you have a closer eye on it.

When you clean your toilet, you can locate the source of the leak and let your plumber know exactly where it comes from when he comes to check it out.
