How to Fix a Clogged Toilet With a Plunger
The first thing you'll want to try to unclog your toilet is a plunger. Do not use drain cleaner, as it is likely to damage your pipes. Instead, place the plunger over the hole at the bottom of the bowl and push and pull the handle up and down. Be sure to do this quickly and forcefully for best results. You’ll want to lay down some old towels or have a mop handy, because it will require some splashing.
If done correctly, the suction created by the plunger will break up the clog and allow the water to drain freely. While plunging a toilet may seem like a straightforward task, there are actually a few common mistakes that people make:
- Not using enough force - When the plunger is only pushed down half-way, it doesn’t create enough suction to unclog the toilet
- Using too much force - This can cause the plunger to slip out of the drain.
- Not maintaining a seal - If the plunger isn’t kept firmly pressed against the drain, the suction will be broken.
If your toilet is still clogged after a few tries, you may need to call a plumber to bring in better tools.
