Dropping hair more than usual and wonder if it will choke your toilet bowl? Yes, hair could end up choking your toilet because it doesn't decompose and weak flushes could make hair clump together into a big mess. Therefore you need to be prepared with some tools before you need to find a plumber. That is why plumbers are still around with technology advances and expensive toilets.
What to do if you have a choked toilet bowl?
- Try a strong flush - A weak flush could cause the drainage pipe to clog, which will lead to a choke (probably from trying to save water and money). But do you know that if your toilet flush is strong, but the flushing of the waste seems weak, it could be a clear indication that there is a clog forming inside the drainage pipes. So, it is important to notice such signs and work towards solving it. If it is too complicated to handle, always look for a professional and reliable plumber that can look into the weak flushing issues.
Drain plunger with home remedy - Ifthe issue is created due to dirt and hairs getting trapped in the pipe and thereby causing the choke, a drain plunger is a basic tool that is required. Some other products that are used in homes such as baking soda, lemon, and vinegar are of great help. Therefore, making a cleaning solution from the products available at the home can be of great help. The homemade solution of baking soda, vinegar, and lemon might dissolve the dirt and residue and clear the pipe.
- Use a Drain Cleaner - Chemical drain cleaners are considered a last resort before getting a plumber. The chemical drain cleaner works in the same way as an enzyme waste material product but much stronger to breakdown seriously stubborn organic wastes. It is very toxic to people and pets, corrosive to pipes, and chlorinated drain cleaner can be very damaging to the environment. Always follow the manufacturer’s instruction and keep the lid down to prevent toxic fumes from filling the bathroom. Ensure that the room is well ventilated to prevent inhalation of the chemicals by your loved ones
