The Reasons Behind a Blocked Toilet

With thousands of households struggling with keeping their bathrooms working efficiently, blocked toilets are the most common type of plumbing emergency in the UK – and pinpointing the reason behind each blockage is all but easy!
Lifestyle factors, habits, accidents, poor maintenance, and old or malfunctioning drainage systems are just some of the contributing factors behind clogged toilets. But in most cases, the culprits are large amounts of toilet paper or foreign objects that are flushed down the toilet. Other common causes include low water pressure, excess hair, wet wipes, and feminine hygiene products like tampons.

4 Reasons To Call a Specialist To Unblock Your Toilet

If you have noticed a blockage in the toilet, you might be tempted to address it without the help of a professional. And, if the blockage is only minor, it hasn’t happened before, or the system is well-maintained and efficient, you might be able to resolve the issue by using a plunger, pouring hot water into the bowl, or leveraging a plumbing snake or auger.
But if none of these methods is working and your toilet is still clogged, further attempts can cause damage to the toilet and the drainage system. In this case, getting in touch with one of our engineers can be highly beneficial – in more than one way!

An Engineer Can Diagnose Underlying Issues With Your Plumbing System

If you can’t find the culprit behind a severe blockage, or your toilet seems to get clogged often, an engineer can help you diagnose underlying issues, such as insufficient water pressure or blockages in the waste outlet or macerator. Using CCTV drain inspections and cutting-edge techniques, our engineers can help you pinpoint the issue and find the best solution for it.

Emergency Plumbing Services Can Prevent Long-Term Water Damage

While calling out a specialised plumber might seem like an inconvenience, not doing so can turn into a long-lasting issue! If not addressed, blocked toilets can lead to leaks, stagnant water, and water damage. In the long term, this can compromise your home’s structural soundness and the efficiency of your drainage system.

A Specialised Engineer Can Restore the Functionalities of Your Toilet

A malfunctioning toilet at home can get in the way of your everyday life and throw your schedule out of balance. Even worse, when blockages happen within commercial premises, a business’s entire operations can be affected!

When working with an expert plumber at District Drain Solutions, you can be sure that your toilet blockage will be resolved in no time!

Working With a Specialist Can Reduce the Risk of Recurring Blockages

Specialised technicians are there to help you reduce the further need for emergency plumbing services. If you have been dealing with recurring or severe clogged toilets, working with an expert can help you understand and address underlying structural issues and improve the overall efficiency of your drainage system. 

The Telltale Signs That You Are Dealing With a Blocked Toilet

Dealing with a blocked toilet is never pleasant, and, at first, it might seem easier to just ignore the problem hoping it will go away. However, if not addressed, a clogged toilet can worsen over time, leading to severe consequences such as leaks, sewage backup, and water damage.
Learning to recognize the signs that your toilet is blocked can help you find the professional help you need before the problem gets worse.
As a general rule, you should get in touch with the team of specialists at District Drain Solutions as soon as you notice any of the following signs:

Frequently Asked Questions

Minor blockages – such as the ones caused by organic material – can be addressed with DIY methods, such as using a plunger or a plumbing snake. In some cases, the toilet might even unblock itself once the material clogging the toilet is broken down and dissolved.
However, if your toilet keeps blocking or you are dealing with a more severe blockage, avoid damaging the drain – get in touch with a professional as soon as possible!

Thanks to the high levels of chlorine in bleach-based solutions, household bleach and other chemical-based drain cleaners can efficiently clear some organic material that is causing a minor blockage. However, if the issue persists – or it’s caused by foreign objects in the pipes –  using bleach might be inefficient and counterproductive. Talk to a professional to better understand the extent of the blockage. 

Our teams of local specialised engineers operate throughout the Oxford area and are on call throughout the year, 24/7. Some of the emergency services we offer include unblocking toilets as well as drain cleaning, maintenance, and inspection.

The drainage system of a home or commercial premise is a vital part of the structure and can make or break the value, comfort, functionality, and livability of the entire property. 

At District Drain Solutions, we encourage homebuyers to invest in professional CCTV drain surveys that can ensure the quality, safety, and efficiency of a home or business. Our surveys come with detailed reports of the issues detected and needed interventions.
