How to clear toilet drain
Following are some simple steps to unclogging toilet on your own:
Toilet Drain Plunger 101
Whether your dealing with a toilet clogged or completely plugged, start with the plunger. When toilet is completely clogged its obvious. The toilet bowl will fill up with water and probably overflow. Give the water level about 10 minutes to drop and then attempt to plunge.
If you have a partial clog, you might not know it until you flush the toilet. When this is the case. The water level remains high and will usually drain down to normal level within a minute or two. If the water doesn’t drain, don’t flush the toilet again. Grab the plunger.
Here are some plunging tips. Be careful the first plunge, the bell of the plunger is filled with air. A hard push will force the air back around the seal and blow water all over to bathroom.
Once you push out the air, plunge forcefully, maintaining the seal. Forcing the water in both directions in the drain will loosen most clogs.
Keep enough water in the bowl so the plunger stays covered. Trying to force air through the toilet trap won’t generate enough pressure.
Use the snake.
Plunger will not always clear toilet drain. There could be greater problem. A drain snake is a long wire coil with a corkscrew-like tip. You will need to wear gloves & safety glasses. Turn snake clockwise so that the tip screws into the clog, foreign objects and debris winds onto the wire so you can pull it out.
Try to avoid chemicals. Commercial drain cleaners have harsh chemicals that can damage pipes. With time, overuse of these cleaners can cause corrosion and spring leaks. Certain types of pipes should never have drain cleaner chemicals used on them. If none of these repairs unclog your toilet, you may have a bigger plumbing issue. Call the experts.
