WHAT TO DO
The Most Utilized Appliance
The toilet is the most used appliance in your home. When it experiences a clog that won’t go away, it can cause a lot of problems. A majority of toilet clogs can be removed using a plunger. This is an effective solution for a clog plaguing your toilet. However, plungers are not always effective. In those cases, you need a professional plumber for clog removal services. ASAP Plumbing Experts offers effective and efficient clog removal services using rooter machines. We’ll get your toilet working again in a matter of minutes.
KNOW WHEN TO CALL
When to Call an Expert for a Clogged Toilet
A pesky clog your plunger is unable to remove is not the only sign you should call a professional. Clogged toilets are common, and most of the time, it’s simply a clog. However, there are cases in which a clogged toilet is a small sign of something worse. When your toilet presents any of the following problems, you may have a bigger problem:
- Regular clogging problems
- Toilet water drains slowly
- Sewage or wastewater begins filling the toilet
The signs above are problems associated with the overall health of your plumbing system. It likely means a problem with your sewer line. If that is the case, your clogged toilet is the least of your problems. That is when you should contact ASAP Plumbing Experts for an inspection.
How to Fix a Clogged Toilet
We all go for the plunger when a toilet becomes clogged. For most of us, this simple tool works well. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Some clogs can be extremely difficult to remove. It may require a more complicated tool such as a drain snake. Drain snakes, also known as hand augers, are made of flexible lines with a hook or screw-like shape on one end. They’re effective in dislodging and removing clogs from your drains, including the toilet! Most drain snakes found at your local hardware store only go a few feet. Our team has access to longer drain snakes, allowing us to reach further down to reach the clog.
If our drain snake is unable to remove the clog, we’ll inspect your plumbing system for another problem. It is likely tied to your plumbing system as a whole or even the sewer line. From there, we’ll implement a solution that fits your situation.

How do I fix a clogged toilet?
We always recommend homeowners use the typical methods to unclog their toilet before contacting a professional. These methods are using a plunger and a drain snake. Start with the plunger. If you are unable to clog the toilet after a few plunges, move to a drain snake. You can pick up a drain snake from your local hardware store if you don’t already have one. Use the instructions to remove the clog from your toilet. Contact our team for professional clog removal services when that doesn’t work.
