When To Call A Plumber

Toilet Filling Up Or Not Flushing

We all take the ability to flush the toilet with little thought. So, what do you do if you go to flush but the waste refuses to go down the drain? Anyone can find themselves in the unfortunate position of having to deal with a toilet that has become clogged. Do you need help deciding when it’s time to call a plumber to fix a toilet that won’t flush

  • You have used the logical techniques, but the drain is still clogged. If you’ve tried everything you can think of to fix the problem on your own, it’s time to call in the experts.
  • If you try to force a clogged toilet to work, you might end up with sewage leaking into your home or a broken toilet that needs to be replaced.
  • If your toilet regularly gets clogged, you’ll need a professional to figure out why. A plumber can inspect the sewage pipe with the help of a specialised camera. Tree roots, corrosion, construction, and landslides are just a few of the things that can wreak havoc on sewer lines.
  • You can see that something unusual was flushed. Sewer septic lines can be damaged if an object, like a toy, makes its way all the way down to the drain.
  • An odour has been picked up by your senses. An undetected leak may be to blame if a strange odour spreads throughout the house. Wall and floor damage, not to mention the growth of mould, are all consequences of a leak that goes undetected. Only an experienced plumber should attempt to identify and fix this issue.
  • The bathroom sink is making a gurgling sound. An underlying issue, such as a clogged vent stack or sewer line, may be the cause of a gurgling toilet if it hasn’t been flushed recently.
