Drain and toilet clogs are a common occurrence. Fortunately, you can generally take care of these without outside help. Use the information below to get started:
A plunger should clear all but the most severe clogs. To use one properly, flush your toilet ONCE. Then, press the bottom of the plunger over the drainage hole in the toilet and pump vigorously.
If the plunger doesn't help, lift the lid on the back of the tank to verify that the chain is still attached to the handle.
Bathroom drains often become clogged over time, due to debris being flushed down the pipe. Consider installing drain traps to prevent this problem from reoccurring.
A drain cleaning tool, such as the Zipit, it a great option for removing hair from your drain. Don't use chemicals to clean your pipes, as these may damage the system.
