More Than One Clogged Toilet Could Mean Sewer Line Backup
If there is one plumbing fixture in your home that’s used most often, your toilet is probably it. So, if it gets clogged up to the point where it’s not usable, then you know you have a problem!
There are a number of different causes for your toilet clogging up – too much toilet paper, feminine hygiene products, children’s toys, unauthorized objects like a toothbrush, or tree roots.
If plunging away doesn’t work, and you can’t pull up any toys or gunk with a clothes hanger, then it’s time to call in the professionals.
Stewart Plumbing Toilet Clog Removal
- The first step in a successful clog removal is to use a plumber’s snake. The snake helps to get rid of any standing water and gives us proper access to the drain.
- Then, out come the drain cameras. The video camera is used to see the severity and location of the clog. It also lets us know exactly what we’re working with so we can get the job done right the first time.
- The last step is to use our hydro jets to clean the drain. Hydrojetting involves sending high-pressure water quickly into your drain to remove almost any item that’s clogging it up. The jets break up obstructions into small pieces that can easily wash through the sewer. This process also completely cleans your pipes, leaving them in like-new conditions. For those especially tough clogs, like one made up of tree roots, hydrojetting is the best option.
More Than a Toilet Clog
If your toilet suddenly became blocked and you can’t unclog it yourself, it’s possible that you have a bigger problem on your hands.
Check the other drains and toilets in your home. Are your drains running slower than normal? Are your other toilets completely unusable? If the answer is yes, then it’s possible you have a main line clog.
Your main sewer line carries all the wastewater out of your home to the city’s main. If it gets backed up, you’ll have sewage backing up into your home. Keep this thought at the back of your mind just in case it ever happens in your home.
Whether it’s a toilet you just can’t unclog, or it’s a main line blockage, Stewart Plumbing can handle it. Give us a call today!
