Why Does My Toilet Keep Clogging?
Few things are as annoying as a toilet that clogs regularly. If your toilet is clogging regularly then in behooves you to find out why it is clogging and take steps to prevent it from reoccurring.
An obstruction in your plumbing system is often the cause of a reoccurring toilet clog. It could be due to an overgrown batch of vegetation or root growing into or denting your plumbing, the wrong thing being flushed and becoming stuck in your pipes, or an altogether dented or broken pipe. Alternatively, minerals from your water supply could have built up in the pipe overtime and obstructed your plumbing systems. Having the pipes cleared of any obstructions, other than minor ones, can be handled by a plumber who can identify the root of the problem with an auger.
Poor Water Pressure
Some toilets will clog as a result of poor water pressure which can derail the force of the water from declogging the waste in a toilet. This can be due to a myriad of reasons from a broken latch system in the toilet to poor design of pipes. A quality plumber can ascertain the cause of the water pressure in your home and can put into place solutions to quickly improve on the flow of water to your toilet thereby reducing toilet clogs.
Blocked toilet line or toilet trap
The trap in your toilet system is an s shaped trap that connects your main water like to your toilet. This can wear over time or simply be poorly installed and wear out leading to a clogged toilet. Sediment can also block the toilet line and lead to wear.
Understanding how toilet systems work can go a long Way to understanding the cause of a toilet clog. Sometimes there are simple solutions and others need an quality plumber to diagnose and address.
