Clogged Toilet Repairs in Lake & McHenry Counties
Nobody wants to deal with a clogged toilet, but it can happen at any time. Ensure your clogs are handled properly with the experts at Duane Blanton Plumbing, Sewer, Heating & Cooling.
Our plumbers have special tools that can get deep into your sewer line to clear out the root cause of a blockage. We can make sure your plumbing system is flowing as needed.
Forget the store-bought drain cleaners or that plunger. Clogs deep within your system won’t respond to these simple methods. At best, they’re short-term fixes.
To effectively remove clogs from your drain system, you’ll need to break them up with drain or sewer rods. This is a routine service we regularly provide for many of our customers.
What Causes a Toilet To Clog?
Many problems can plague a toilet and lead to serious clogs. A few of the most common causes of toilet clogs include:
- Flushing thick materials: Materials like paper towels or “flushable” wipes can fail to break down when flushed and cause a clog.
- Too much toilet paper: Flushing large amounts of toilet paper can make it difficult for water to break down, leading to a serious clog.
- Blocked toilet vent pipe: An air vent on your roof allows for regulation of your plumbing system. If this vent is blocked, your toilet may not flush well.
- Hard water buildup: Minerals in your water can attach themselves to the inner lining of your toilet’s pipes, slowing down every flush.
How Do You Know Where the Clog Is?
The team at Duane Blanton Plumbing has the latest tools in the plumbing industry to detect where a toilet clog is. With the right information, we can quickly remove the clog and get your system working like new.
Today’s plumbing technology makes it easier than ever to find the cause of a toilet clog. We have video pipe inspection tools that go down the drain and show us exactly what’s wrong so we can perform the right repair.
How Do You Remove the Clog?
Removing toilet clogs is a breeze with Duane Blanton Plumbing, Sewer, Heating & Cooling. Once we understand the type of clog, we can perform the right clearing technique.
If it’s safe to push the clog through, we’ll use a drain rod to push the materials down the pipe. If dense materials must be broken down, we’ll use a mechanical cable that scrapes the materials away.
