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.
