How To Tell If Your Toilet Is Clogged

A clogged toilet is a nuisance at best and a serious health hazard at worst. That’s why it’s important to recognize the signs of a clogged toilet, like the following:

  1. It’s not flushing.
  2. The water stays in the bowl for a very long time—or drains extremely slowly. 
  3. The water overflows. This usually happens because the old water never gets the chance to leave the bowl, so when you flush, and new water gets dumped into the bowl, it goes over its capacity. 
  4. There are gurgling sounds coming from your toilet.
  5. Water is backing up into other pipes.

How to Fix a Clogged Toilet

You always want to start with a plunger even if your toilet is partially plugged. You will know when a toilet is completely plugged; it is evident when the toilet bowl starts to overflow. Always give your toilet about 10 minutes for the water level to subside before you start to use a plunger.

If the plunger won’t clear the drain, or if the toilet still won’t flush well, use the snake. A drain snake is a long wire coil with a corkscrew-like tip that you feed into your pipes until it reaches the clog.

Why Is My Toilet Clogged?

Recognizing there’s something wrong with your toilet is the first step. But in order to properly fix a clogged toilet, you need to know exactly what is clogging it. 

Here are some common reasons your toilet is clogged:

  1. Your toilet is old. Sometimes, older toilets just don’t have the appropriate flush power they need.
  2. Poor drains. Sometimes, a clogged toilet could be because of a malfunctioning drain pipe. A drain pipe is the pipe responsible for carrying out waste from your toilet. If it’s broken or malfunctioning, it won’t properly drain your toilet. 
  3. A blocked toilet trap. A toilet trap is a curving channel inside your toilet’s base. If this is blocked, your whole bowl will fill up and won’t properly drain.
  4. Clogged with toys. Sometimes, having kiddos can get a little hectic—like when they get into areas they’re not supposed to. It’s happened to many parents before: the toilet is mysteriously clogged, a plumber gets called, and the reason is…your kid’s action figure. 
  5. Too much toilet paper. Perhaps one of the most common reasons a toilet gets clogged, an excess amount of toilet paper being flushed can cause a serious backup.
