Most Common Toilet Clogs

As a San Diego plumber for more than 30 years, we have seen a lot of toilet clogs! And often times the clog is caused by the same culprits. Therefore, our San Diego plumbing team has compiled a helpful list of items to avoid flushing down the toilet in order to avoid future problems. After all, preventative maintenance is your best bet to steer clear of issues and maintain well functioning plumbing.

Your toilet is designed to handle the typical waste for which it was designed, as well as a reasonable amount of toilet paper. However, any other substances should not be placed down the toilet. Items such as paper towels, cotton swabs, hair, cotton balls, dental floss, large wipes, dryer sheets, facial tissue, toilet cleansing pads, feminine hygiene products and excessive amounts of bathroom tissue should never be flushed down the toilet. After all, our San Diego plumbing professionals know that each of these items can accumulate and lead to clogs in your plumbing system. Instead, our San Diego plumbing team strongly urges individuals to properly dispose of these items in a wastebasket.

However, in the event that you do experience a clog, a San Diego plumber from Bill Howe can resolve the issue both quickly and efficiently. We have more than three decades of experience serving the San Diego community with all plumbing issues, large and small. Plus, we proudly guarantee all of our parts and labor so that our customers can rest easy knowing that the job is done right. Not to mention, we offer our expert services 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, and 365 days a year. We know that clogs don’t just occur between 9 am – 5 pm and we are ready to help day or night!

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.
