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 Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

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.
