Moreover, what to do about a toilet that keeps clogging?
A few minutes with a plunger should loosen any blockage and remove the clog. More stubborn clogs can be cleared with a toilet auger. Limiting toilet paper use and keeping non-flushable items out of your toilet should keep the toilet trap clear.
Furthermore, will a toilet eventually unclog itself? Toilets, like all plumbing drains, work by the force of gravity. A full bowl of water exerts its own pressure on the clog and, over time, often will clear the clog for you. So if you have more than one bathroom in the house, just wait it out overnight, or as long as you can.
Consequently, why does my toilet keep blocking?
The most common material that blocks a toilet is toilet paper. Too much toilet paper being used and dumped for a single flush can cause a blocked toilet. Some toilet papers do not dissolve easily and the buildup of this stuff happens over a period of time. Kids also contribute to a blocked toilet.
Do you need to plunge a toilet all the time?
Flapper not opening completely The flapper is the part of your toilet that lets water flow from the tank on the back down into the toilet bowl, creating the flush. If the flapper doesn't open all the way it won't release enough water, which means you'll get a weak flush. Clogs are common in toilets with a weak flush.
