We can easily fix or replace your toilet!
After you flush the toilet, watching the basin rapidly fill and imagining the mess spilling out all over the floor can instantly fill you with panic. Clogged toilets are one of the most common household plumbing problems we encounter at Smart Choice Plumbing & Air Conditioning, LLC, but they’re no match for our experienced plumbing pros.
One of the best ways to prevent problems with your toilets, like clogs, is to understand what causes them in the first place. These are some of the most common culprits of toilet problems:
- Corroded pipes—As your pipes get older, they’re more likely to crack and corrode. This prevents water from flowing as freely as before, making toilet clogs more likely.
- Too much toilet paper—Trying to flush large wads of toilet paper isn’t good for your toilets. Instead of flushing waste with your toilet paper, flush the waste first and then flush the toilet paper separately. You should also avoid using more toilet paper than necessary.
- Foreign objects—Besides waste, the only thing you should be flushing down your toilet is toilet paper. Baby wipes, personal wipes, paper towels, feminine hygiene products, and cotton balls are all products that won’t dissolve in water and will eventually get stuck in the drain.
- Hard water—If your house’s water has high mineral content, it can cause problems for your plumbing system over time. For example, the hard water will gradually leave mineral and calcium deposits on your pipes, which will narrow their openings and cause clogs. A water softener is a wise investment if hard water is causing problems for your plumbing.
