Common Causes of Toilet Problems
Almost everyone has experienced a clogged toilet at some time but there are many other reasons to reach out to a plumber for toilet repairs. Here are some of the common causes we have come across.
How to Prevent Toilet Clogs and Unnecessary Toilet Repairs
We recommend not flushing anything except waste and toilet paper, even if the product is labelled “flushable”. Here are some common things that we’ve seen clog Ottawa toilets.
- Feminine Hygiene Products – they are still one of the most common causes of toilet clogs that we see.
- “Flushable” Wipes – Some baby wipes and other personal wipes are labelled as flushable, and if your toilet and drain installations have been perfectly done you may be lucky. But in less than ideal circumstances these can and do clog toilets and drains.
- Thick “luxury” toilet paper – Some baby wipes and other personal wipes are labelled as flushable, and if your toilet and drain installations have been perfectly done you may be lucky. But in less than ideal circumstances these can and do clog toilets and drains.
- Facial Tissues – Even though they look thin and delicate, remember they can withstand a cold and don’t break down as easily as toilet paper.
- Paper Towels – These are designed to resist disintegration as much as possible, so don’t take a chance with them.
Here are a few other simple things that can help you avoid unnecessary toilet repairs.
- Don’t add any cleaners or pucks to the tank – The chemicals in them can prematurely age the rubber and plastic parts. Putting them in the bowl is fine. However, when chlorine pucks get smaller, they can cause blockage of the water jets.
- Don’t put bricks or water savers in the toilet tank – People used to do this back when 20 litre flush toilets were common, but in today’s low-water volume flush toilets they aren’t needed. These objects can interfere with the flushing mechanism and bricks can shed particles that can cause problems as well.
- Flush after each use – Today’s new low-flush toilets are designed to be flushed every time in order to avoid chemical degradation of the mechanical parts (so don’t “let it mellow”).
