We’ve faced this problem before: we wake up one morning to realize that our toilet isn’t working as it’s supposed to be—that all our dirt just stays there, slowly humiliating us for not being able to flush it down the drain.

No one seriously wants to deal with toilet unblocking, but then we’d prefer to handle it than let someone else discover our dirty issue. To help you manage it in a smarter way, here are some tips:

Plunger

The plunger is a mechanical device that you insert into the inner mouth of the toilet. Before, the handles are normally made of wood, while the plunger itself was rubber. Today you’ll come across all sorts of designs, which don’t matter much anyway, as they work very similarly. The process of using the plunger involves backward-forward motion. You place the plunger into the toilet with force then perform fast but small pumps until you can feel that the object that’s lodged there starts moving down.

Sounds fun and neat, eh? Not really, especially if you’re dealing not just the dirt down there but also water. If you’re not careful, you may end up having some unmentionables splashed on you—talk about gross.

Rag-style Mop

Perhaps a much cruder approach to unblocking the toilet is by using an old-fashioned mop, that one with rag-style end. It basically works like the plunger, but the only thing is the fabric end of the mop is the one you put into the inner mouth. The upside of this is you can put a good distance between the mop and the toilet, because handles are long. The downside is because the head is much softer and longer, they can easily whisk away dirt just about anywhere in the bathroom the moment you forcefully lift it up.

Coat Hanger

Admit it, the coat hanger has never crossed your mind while we’re talking about toilet unblocking, but mind you, some people, out of sheer desperation, uses it. How do you use it? You don’t immediately place the coat hanger right into the toilet bowl. Instead, you shape it into a letter L, until it appears more like a hook, insert it into the smaller opening of the bowl, and lift whatever object you can get out of it. Hopefully, it’s either a child’s toy or a toilet freshener.

What If None Work?

You’ve tried everything, including looking like you’ve never had a bath for a decade. Still none work. What is your next step? It’s actually very easy. You simply have to call us 1800-65-92-30.

But why?

Unknown to many, the main cause of the block may have nothing to do with the toilet bowl at all but rather in the pipes that are connected to the toilet system. It’s possible that something has blocked the pipe, such as rocks, lumps of soil, or even tree branches and plant debris. Thus, the passageway has become narrower until it becomes virtually impossible for anything to pass through it. A broken pipe can also be the main issue, as well as roots of trees that have found their way into the pipes.

Because of the complexity of the issue, it’s best if you leave the job to the experts. Besides working with the right types of machines, we make use of sophisticated cameras that get in to the pipe. This way, we can accurately determine the cause and implement the right solution.

We don’t leave the project until your problem is solved. And after repairing it the problem comes back, you can call us, and we’ll give the service to you for free.
