How do I unclog a toilet?
Firstly, if the toilet doesn't flush properly, do not flush it again. This causes excess water to flow into the toilet bowl. If you have a plunger, make a tight seal around the bottom of the bowl. Make sure the plunger covers the hole and that you're pushing and pulling with water (not air). If you've push/pulled more than 20 or so times, with intermittent flushing in between and it's still not cleared—call us now. We'll unclog that troublesome toilet for you in no time!
