Clogged Toilet Repairs in Virginia Beach
Restoring Your Home’s Most Crucial Systems
Clogged toilets are common plumbing problems. Understanding the causes of clogged toilets is the first step in taking steps to avoid future problems after a toilet problem has been repaired by a professional plumber in Virginia Beach from American Mechanical.
What Causes Clogged Toilet Problems?
The main reason for blockage is when foreign items are flushed down, or if there are excessive amounts of toilet paper being flushed. This can be difficult if there are already other waste materials blocking the pipes.
Toilets can also become clogged due to outside factors. Tree roots can invade your sewer line and hinder the normal flow of waste and water. A blocked sewer line can then lead to a clogged toilet. In more severe cases, your toilet may start to overflow if flushed.
How are Clogs Removed?
Seek professional toilet clog removal to reduce the risk of future problems. We have additional tools apart from the traditional plunger or chemical drain cleaner.
If a blockage is persistent, this means the drainage pipe has usually become completely clogged with debris. In this case, we will use a drain snake to break through the debris, creating an opening for water and waste to flow through normally again.
Drain snaking is often a temporary solution, though, and heavier blockages will require hydro jetting; in extreme cases, we will need to remove your toilet to clear the pipeline.
Blockages further down in your system are identified using a video pipe camera. This specialized camera will pinpoint the exact location of blockage or damage, giving us an accurate view of where to perform the repair without having to dig up your property or remove any piping.
