Blocked Toilet? We can help

Modern toilets do a wonderful job of whisking away waste while conserving water. However, they are not without their challenges. Blocked or clogged toilets are not uncommon with our customers in Perth. In many cases, a simple toilet plunger may be enough to handle the issue, but there are times when you need to call a plumber to handle your issue.

How to Tell If You Need to Call a Plumber

Not sure if you need to call a plumber to handle your blockage? Blocked toilets can be tricky in some instances. Try these steps to fix the problem on your own:

  • Make sure there is water in the toilet bowl – enough to cover the plunger head at least halfway.
  • Plunge the toilet using a rapid up and down motion.
  • Flush the toilet. If the clogged toilet has been fixed, the water will go down the drain.
  • If the blockage is still persistent and the water level is rising, turn off the isolation tap next to the toilet.

Is your toilet still blocked? Try adding one cup of baking soda to the bowl, followed by three litres of boiling water. Slowly pour in two cups of white vinegar. The fizz should help clear the blockage.

In some instances, simply adding hot water and a bit of dish soap can do the trick. The hot water will dissolve bunched toilet paper, and soap may help lubricate the mass and move it along the pipe.

Call a Plumber

Sometimes, despite your best efforts, a stubborn blockage just won’t go away. If you have tried everything, give the professionals at Hilton Plumbing a call. Our experienced plumbers arrive with all the modern equipment necessary to get things flowing once more.

Chances are good that an auger or high pressure water jetter will be necessary to remove any blockage that has formed in the sewer pipe itself. The problem may also be deeper in your plumbing system, and our experts will be able to locate the issue and remedy it quickly.

In the end, blocked toilets do not need to be frustrating. If you cannot handle it on your own, call Hilton Plumbing today on 6350 0900.
