Clogged Toilet Repair

Clogged toilets are a huge inconvenience in the home, especially if you have just one bathroom. But even with multiple bathrooms, a single clogged toilet is enough to create frustrations for everyone living in the home. If you’re facing this problem, you came to the right place because One Source Home Service is the home of the finest plumbing professionals. You can trust that with our help, your toilet will be back in order. 


The process begins when you give us a call and speak to one of our world class problem solvers who are available 24/7/365.

Causes of Clogged Toilets

Sometimes knowing the reason behind your clogged toilet may be the key to understanding how to fix it. But if you can’t fix the problem yourself, you will at least know how to prevent future occurrences. Below, we provided a few of the most common reasons you might have a clogged toilet. 

Low-Flow Toilets

Low-flow toilets use less water, and as a result, they are prone to more clogs. Try using less toilet paper and clean the toilet regularly to avoid future clogs. 

Blocked Plumbing Vents

Plumbing vents are designed to equalize the air pressure in the plumbing system, and if they become blocked, they can cause clogs.

Tree Roots

Sometimes tree roots of particularly tall trees can grow into your sewer pipes. This can cause blockages that prevent proper flushing, thereby causing a clog. 

Foreign Objects

If you have small children, it’s possible that  a toy, excess toilet paper, or baby wipes were flushed.  These items often cause a clog in the plumbing.

Old Pipes

Old pipes develop corrosion, making it easier for waste to adhere to their surfaces. As a result, the pipes will eventually get backed up, and your toilet will not flush properly.

DIY Solutions for Clogged Toilets

If you’re trying to avoid calling a plumber, we don’t blame you. After all, why call if you can do it yourself? Feel free to try one of the following DIY solutions to unclog your toilet. 

Use a Plunger

Start by using a plunger. Place the plunger over the toilet drain and push it down several times to create a suction. Then, quickly pull up on the plunger to create pressure and clear the clog. 

Hot Water and Dish Soap

Pour a cup of dish soap into the toilet bowl and let it sit for a few minutes. Then, pour a pot of boiling water from the height of your waist. Doing so will help you break apart the blockage. 

Baking Soda and Vinegar

Sprinkle a cup of baking soda into the toilet and then follow with a cup of vinegar. After allowing it to set for 30 minutes, flush the toilet. 

Plumbing Snake

If you have a plumbing snake, insert it into the toilet drain and break up the blockage. Plumbing snakes are very effective, and some hardware stores may even rent them. 

Enzymatic Cleaner

An enzymatic cleaner is a chemical solution that breaks down organic matter, such as waste and toilet paper. Pour the cleaner into the toilet bowl and let it sit for several hours or overnight before flushing.

When to Call a Professional

So when should you call a professional? While there’s nothing wrong with allowing the pros to handle the entire problem, homeowners must recognize the signs that they need more help when nothing is working. Here’s when you should call a plumber at One Source: 

The Clog is Severe

If the clog is so big that nothing you try works, you must call a professional because more attempts may damage your plumbing system. 

Multiple Drains are Clogged

If multiple drains in your home are clogged, this may indicate a more significant plumbing issue. A plumber can diagnose the problem and determine the best course of action.

Nothing You Tried Works

Did you try all of the above-mentioned methods without success? If so, you must call a professional plumber for help to avoid further damage. 

The Toilet is Overflowing

An overflowing toilet is unpleasant, to say the least, and can cause structural damage to your bathroom. Call a plumber immediately if you are experiencing this issue.
