Frisco Toilet Clog Services

When it comes to our toilets, there’s zero margin for error. Either your toilet flushes or it doesn’t. Every Frisco homeowner has dealt with a toilet clog at some point, but that doesn’t make them any easier when they happen again. Plus, some clogs are stubborn and need an expert to solve.

Earl’s Plumbing handles the dirty work so that you don’t have to. Your toilet clogs don’t have to be sources of stress — especially when our plumbers are a call away with a quick solution. From the common causes of your toilet annoyance to our efficient solutions, we’ve got all the answers you need about toilet clogs!

What Causes Toilet Clogs?

The pipes that carry sewage away from your toilet are actually only about three or four inches wide. That’s not so big when you think about it! Add excess toilet paper and foreign objects to the mix and you’ve got yourself a tough clog. Some of the most common causes of toilet clogs are:

toilet clog
  • Foreign objects
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • “Flushable” products
  • Toilet paper
  • Other clogged pipes
  • Mineral buildup

Yes, even wipes labeled “flushable” should not be flushed down the toilet. These materials can easily cause blockages in the system, and they aren’t meant to break down like toilet paper is. NEVER put anything down your toilet except toilet paper. If a clog deeper in your plumbing is causing problems or you can’t figure out why your toilet is clogged, call on the pros at Earl’s Plumbing.

DIY Toilet Clog Solutions

We all know that we try to solve toilet clogs on our own before calling in backup. Having a plunger on hand is extremely important to start with. The most effective plungers are the ones with a flange that fits right up against the toilet drain. If this doesn’t work to dislodge the clog, you may have to use other substances.

Acidic or caustic liquids work to dissolve and disperse clogs. Some DIY substances to try are baking soda, hot water or even Coca-Cola. If these tactics don’t work, we recommend avoiding the chemical drain cleaners. The more caustic solutions you put down your pipes, the more your pipes suffer.

When Is It Time To Call A McKinney Plumber?

As soon as you need us! Whether you’ve tried DIY fixes or not, your toilet clog can become serious very quickly. If you notice water backing up from other drains in your home, foul odors or prolonged clogs taking your toilet out of service, you need professional help. Earl’s Plumbing takes care of toilet clogs all the time — you’re not the only one dealing with this inconvenience. Let us help!

Professional Toilet Unclogging

Our team brings years of expertise and determination to your home — and specialized tools like toilet snakes or augers! With these tools at our disposal, we’ll be able to resolve your clog in no time. Snakes and augers are cable-like tools that are twisted into the toilet drain to loosen the clog. Whether your toilet requires a special tool or just some extra muscle, our team has your back.

If your clog is lodged deep in the plumbing, we can use our sewer cameras to ensure it’s eliminated completely. We make sure that your toilet clog is addressed completely, cleaning up behind us before we leave. That’s the service that Frisco deserves, and that’s what we strive to provide.
