If your toilet clogs one safe option for unclogging involves using some liquid dish soap. Squirt a little in the bowl and let it settle to the bottom. Then, wait for a while to see if the clog loosens on it’s own. Be cautious while flushing as you don’t want to overfill the bowl.
Plunging the toilet is usually the first remedy homeowners try and it is sometimes successful. However what many people don’t know is that it is possible to break the water-tight seal under the toilet just by using a plunger. Once this seal is broken water can leak out underneath the bowl and cause damage. Sewer gas is also free to escape into the bathroom once that seal is broken.
If you don’t feel confident enough to handle this, or just don’t want the hassle, or if you suspect you might have a leak give the pros at Pathmaker Plumbing a call. We can professionally assess and correct any issues with your commode ensuring your health and property aren’t at risk.
