Frequently Asked Questions

If your toilet is blocked by organic material, such as toilet paper and feces, you may find that your toilet unblocks itself after an hour or so of being blocked. In this case, you may not need to take any further action. If, however, you notice that your toilet keeps blocking, and the toilet water draining slowly, this may indicate an underlying issue that should be resolved immediately to prevent any additional complications.

Chemical based drain cleaners like household bleach may be a quick solution to unblock a toilet if the blockage is small. The high level of chlorine present in bleach can break down organic material like toilet paper, soap residue, hair, and some fats and grease. For a long-term solution, however, it is recommended to have your blocked toilets and waste pipe assessed thoroughly by a professional. Items like children’s toys, sanitary pads, or any solid object can cause complete blockage to a toilet bowl.

There are a few telltale signs that your toilet is blocked. If you notice water starting to back up in the bowl, stubborn clogs, or it takes longer than usual for the water to drain after you flush, there’s a good chance your toilet is blocked. Another sign is if you see the water level coming up through the floor drain in your bathroom.
