Flushing the wrong items can cause your toilet or plumbing system to clog. If you can’t clear it yourself, you need the plumbing pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.

You, like many others, have been working from home the past couple of weeks and it looks as if that will continue for at least the next week or so. With everyone home 24/7, there’s been extra stress on your plumbing and this morning, your toilet backed up and overflowed. You had a real mess on your hands.

The cause is likely a clog – the most common of plumbing issues to fix, according to bobvila.com.

“Clearing the clog is super simple, and you probably have a toilet plunger already on hand,” bobvila.com says. “Simply insert the plunger into the bowl while it’s still full of water, pressing the mouth of the plunger firmly against the opening at the bottom of the bowl to form a seal. Then use a rhythmic push-and-pull pumping motion to create pressure in the drain and free the clog.

“Don’t be overly enthusiastic; forceful plunging is likely to splash dirty water all over the bathroom. After eight to 10 pumps, lift the plunger away from the bottom of the bowl. If you’ve freed the clog, the water will drain—it usually takes just one or two attempts to free a clog.”

But sometimes, despite your best efforts, you can’t get rid of the clog. Or, you think it’s gone but the flushing remains slow and the toilet soon clogs again. That could indicate a problem farther down in your system. That’s a problem it could take an expert to solve. If so, it’s time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
