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.

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

I have been using Bill Howe since the late 1980’s, their service has always been excellent, plumbing, heating and restoration. I am most impressed by the integrity of their employees, not only do they know their work/skill, they do not waste time, they are so efficient, they are so helpful and they are a true “service”!

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

Restoration & Flood

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
