How many times do you use the toilet in a day? Everyone is different, but indeed, everyone uses the toilet at least once a day. What happens if we are using the toilet and suddenly it is clogged? No matter what you try, it is just stuck, not working. We try to find out what happened, in which part of the toilet the blockage occurred.
If you found the source of the problem, then you might try to solve it yourself. You use cleaning equipment such as a plunger or toilet brush, maybe even use cleaning agents to speed up the cleaning process of the blockage. If your effort is successful, you will feel relieved, and you can continue your plan on that day. What if it is not? Inevitably you might need to change plans throughout the day and maybe a few days later.
What causes blockages in the toilet? Some of the following items can cause serious problems such as:
- Hair. Even if it looks reasonable, hair can cause severe blockages, especially in large quantities. Hair consists of 3 layers, namely the cortex, cuticle, and medulla. The most significant percentage of compounds contained in the hair is keratin, which is also present in the skin and nails. Therefore, the hair is hard to break. Immediately remove the loose hair which accidentally enters your toilet or water channel to avoid clogging.
- Solid objects. Solid objects that cannot decompose may accidentally enter the toilet. For example, if your child intentionally inserted his toy, like a rubber duck into your toilet.
- Diapers. Do not throw diapers into the toilet. Generally, the materials of diapers are not simply dissolving in water.
- Sanitary napkins or tampons. Even though the material itself doesn’t come in a big size, its basic ingredients are actually hard to break. To avoid any possible damages, it will be a better idea to throw napkins or tampons in the trash bin.
If a blockage occurs, you can choose to clean it yourself or call a local plumber close to where you live. If you want to clean it yourself, you should prepare for the bad possibilities that can occur. Use waterproof gloves to avoid possible exposure to bacteria or germs that can cause disease. Also, use a mask to reduce odor.
