Toilet Plunger Tips

Toilet Plunger Tips - Plumber.ca

Read these toilet plunger tips to help you get a minor toilet clog resolved as fast as possible. We understand it’s not always practical to call a Toronto plumbing company when you have minor issues so here are some quick and easy DIY tips for dealing with a clogged drain.

Toilet Plunger Tips 1) When your toilet clogs most people will use a plunger which is okay, however, some people may not know the correct toilet plunger is the one with the circular tube-like extension on the bottom of it. It’s different from a sink plunger which is the half-moon shape. And the best way to use a plunger is to first turn off the house-side water source. And then place the plunger circular tube-like extension into the toilet and use a pull and push motion slower at first but then building up a bit of pace until the clog releases.

Toilet Plunger Tips 2) When you sink clogs and you’ve already removed as much debris and hair out of it as possible and it’s still clogged then utilize a sink plunger. However, first fill up the sink halfway with water and utilize a push and pull motion with the plunger in the drain until you feel the clog release. And once it has cleared turn on the hot water and let it run to help completely flush the pip

Toilet Plunger Tips 3) When your bathtub is clogged up and you’re experiencing a slow drain it can usually be unclogged with a cup of regular table salt being poured down into the drain which is flushed by a pot of boiling water. Try using another pot of boiling water if your first attempt is unsuccessful. And if this doesn’t work to unclog your bathtub drain you can try using the sink plunger with the pull and push motion mentioned above.

These toilet plunger tips are the simplest ways to deal with common household drain clogging issues certainly. If these methods do not work then you might consider investing in a drain snake which is a specialized tool which will breach the clog and clear a pathway for it. Otherwise, you may need to call a professional plumber who will have a professional grade drain snake along with other tools if necessary. Give us a call in Toronto at (416) 433-1111 today!

Why Plumber.ca?

There are several plumbers out there. Many have experience. So why choose us over everyone else? Here are a few reasons:

check  No Hourly Charges – Many customers do not see the advantages of having a plumber who does not work by the hour. A plumber who works on a fixed price has no reason to stick around after the job is finished to ensure he gets paid more. Even if the job takes more time than required, you still pay the same amount.

check  Upfront, Exact Pricing – Every job we do has a set price shown in our price book. We go through with you exactly what the scope of the work will be to fix your problem and the costs involved. You know before we start what the final price will be – no surprises!

check  Rapid Response Times – Our highly efficient dispatch team will make sure our local plumbers are at your location as soon as possible. Under regular conditions, our plumbing technicians will arrive at your location within 24-hours. Service calls can take longer than expected and specialty parts may need to be ordered, which may push the wait times longer so we communicate ongoing.

check  Priority Calls – Emergency calls are our highest priority. We know they can quickly become a serious situation. You can place a priority call to ensure you are the next customer to be serviced. The technician will be at your location within 24 hours. All priority calls require a credit card upon calling.

check  Local Plumbers – There is no sense in calling a plumbing service that is in another city. We have plumbers in all major city centers across the GTA that can respond to your emergency when you need it.

check  Fully Loaded Work Trucks – A fully inventoried truck is crucial so that your problem can not only be diagnosed quickly, but fixed quickly as well. Even if the job requires a specialty part, we can have it ordered within 24-hours.
