4 Common Reasons for Clogged Toilets – Plumbing Repair Services in Nashville, TN

Oh no! It has happened again, your toilet seems to be clogged and you are not sure why. Toilets can clog for several reasons, so here are four common reasons for why your toilet might be clogging! 

Foreign Objects 

Foreign Objects can cause a block in your system. Some examples of block causers are toys, too much toilet paper, trash, cotton pads, feminine hygiene products, dental floss, diapers, baby wipes and so much more. A sewer system is designed for toilet paper and human waste. If you are unsure if an object is acceptable to flush, you can always call your local plumbing company. 

Aged Piping

Piping that is aged can also be another cause for clogs. Throughout time pipes can break, crack and collapse causing frequent clogging issues, but there is no need to fear when your local plumber is near! Call our team at Jack Ward & Sons Plumbing Co. (615) 227 – 2811. 

Hard Water 

Believe it or not, hard water can be another leading factor to clogged toilets. If the water at your residence has a lot of minerals in it, then you might have hard water. The minerals in hard water can build-up in a system causing waste to have a difficult time traveling through the pipes, which can sometimes lead to clogging. 

Flushable wipes

Even though they are called “Flushable Wipes,” does not mean you should flush these down your toilet. You should avoid putting these in your toilet at all cost! They can build up in your system and can cause a blockage. Remember, A sewer system is designed for toilet paper and human waste, not foreign objects!

If you have any questions or are unsure about a clogging issue call our team at Jack Ward & Sons Plumbing Co. (615) 227 – 2811.
