What To Do If Your Toilet Is Clogged

Our expert plumber, Brandon Ledford, discusses quick tips on how to manage a clogged toilet when it happens. We know this type of situation can be very frustrating for homeowners. The first thing we recommend is to shut all the water to the toilet off to prevent flooding.


Hi, my name is Brandon Ledford.

– I’m the master plumber here at Anytime Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing.

– I just wanted to go over a couple of quick tips for some common plumbing issues, calls we get of people not knowing what to do in certain situations including, you know, a clogged toilet.

– Some people call in, you know, they have a clogged toilet starting to overflow.

– They don’t know what to do.

– Some of the common causes of clogged toilets are wet wipes, paper towels, over use of toilet paper.

– You want to remember that all of our new toilets are low flow compliance toilets, which can flush no more than one point two eight gallons per flush.

– You always want to be mindful of what goes down your toilet because it goes somewhere.

– Just because it flushes doesn’t mean it should.

– Typically, the first thing we want to recommend you do is shut off all water to the toilet.

– So, it will at least prevent any more future flooding.

– Most all toilets have a shutoff located down on the left.

– Reach down, shut it off, and that’ll at least keep the toilet from overflowing anymore.

– Then, you can proceed to, you know, try to plunge the toilet and, if you cannot get the toilet clear, you know, you can give us a call.
