My Toilet Is Clogged | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If your toilet clogs and you can’t get it fixed on your own, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber. He’s always available to help you.

All your plans for the day (bike riding on the Suncoast Trail) were upended this morning when your toilet clogged and overflowed. You managed to clean up the floor around the toilet, but you couldn’t find your toilet plunger, so it’s still clogged. Thank goodness you have two bathrooms in your home.

You can unclog a toilet without a plunger, according to All you need is a regular sized box of baking soda and up to a gallon of vinegar. First you pour the contents of the baking soda box into the toilet, then you begin to slowly pour the vinegar into the toilet bowl.

“It will create a foaming action as it comes into contact with the baking soda,” says. “You don’t want to dump it all in as you will have a frothy mess erupting from your toilet. Instead, slowly add up to a gallon of vinegar and get the action started but under control.”

Let it sit for awhile and then flush. That should take care of things.

“To prevent future problems, pour some hot—but not boiling—water into the bowl, and give it another flush,” adds. “This will help to remove anything that may have been left behind after the vinegar-baking soda flush. Do not use boiling water as you could crack your toilet.”

If that doesn’t clear your toilet, you may have a clog farther down in your plumbing system or you might have something stuck in the toilet. It’s probably time to call the plumbing pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
