What Causes Clogged Toilets?
There are many things that can contribute to a clogged toilet in your home, some are unavoidable. Generally, they fall into one of two categories:
- SIMPLE CLOGS: Reserved for clogs created by organic material and non-water soluble items. These can happen because of diapers or personal care products. Simple clogs are most commonly caused by using too much toilet paper, something that small children tend to do when learning to use the bathroom.
- FOREIGN OBJECT: As the name suggests, this issue is caused when a foreign object gets stuck in the plumbing. Some of the most common objects that tend to fall inside toilets include toothbrushes, cellphones, and shampoo bottles.
