Tips for Getting the Clogged Toilet Opened Yourself
Get the plunger
Give the water level about 10 minutes to drop and then attempt to plunge.
If you have a partial clog, you might not know it until you flush the toilet. If this is the case, the water level remains high and will usually drain down to a normal level within a minute or two. If the water doesn’t drain, don’t flush the toilet again and grab the plunger.
Here are some plunging tips for yourself should you have a clogged toilet:
- Once you push out the air in the plunger on your plunge, plunge forcefully, maintaining the seal forcing the water in both directions in the drain will loosen most clogs.
- Keep enough water in the bowl so the plunger stays covered.
Time To Use the Snake to Open a Clogged Toilet
If the plunger won’t clear the drain to time to let in the snake. A drain snake is a long wire coil with a corkscrew-like tip that you feed into your pipes until it reaches the clog and pushes out the clog through force. Try to avoid chemicals offered by many conveniences stores. Commercial drain cleaners have harsh chemicals that can damage pipes, and with time, overuse of these cleaners can cause corrosion and leaks. Certain types of pipes should never have drain cleaner chemicals used on them.
