Everyone knows that sheer moment of panic when they try to flush the toilet after they have used it only to find out that it is not working as it is supposed to. In that event, after the initial panic slows down, you probably want to know what you should do. Do you want to clear out your blocked toilet, and you just found out your plunger is missing? It’s possible you don’t need to get another plunger before clearing out that toilet.
Before you begin, there are several things worthy of note. This concept wouldn’t work on an overflowing toilet since you will pour water into the toilet bowl during this process. If the liquid level in your toilet is at the brink, or close to that, albeit disgusting, it would be wise to transfer the liquid yourself. Let’s get on with this.
Step 1: Pour in a substantial quantity of liquid soap into the occluded toilet. A regular soap well shredded wouldn’t be a bad idea either.
Step 2: Pour in some scorching hot water into the toilet bowl. Ensure you don’t add boiling water as it can damage the pipes.
Step 3: A little patience and you should see some result. Any paper which is responsible for the clogging of the toilet is broken down by the hot water. The liquid or shredded soap ensures it doesn’t stick around in the pipes, but rather it goes down to the sewers.
If you wait for a long time and nothing happens, just loosen a metal hanger, and with that, you can gradually push the rubbish responsible for the clogged toilet where they belong down the pipe into the sewers.
