How to unclog a Toilet

A toilet is an integral part of the plumbing in a house. It has not only been used for disposing of human wastes, but it also can be used to dispose of other materials like paints, chemicals, and other substances.

There are many ways to fix a clogged toilet. You’ll want to avoid using items that could cause damage to your plumbing for this task because you may end up with more problems than you started with.

Method 1: Plunger

The plunger is probably the cheapest way to fix any clogged toilet. A plunger operates by creating suction on the surface of water or air that is inside the toilet bowl.

When the plunger is released and pulled back up, it creates a vacuum that allows it to either push or pull the clog out of the toilet bowl. To operate a plunger properly, first make sure that the plunger is completely filled with water. Then, cover any overflow holes in the toilet’s tank with your hand before plunging into the toilet bowl.

The most important thing, however, is to make sure you plunge correctly. Plunging incorrectly can result in damage to your toilet or plunger. To make sure you are doing the plunging correctly, put it into action first before reading any further by following these simple steps:

1) Make sure that the plunger is completely filled with water.

2) Slowly push the plunger into the toilet bowl. Make sure that you feel a suction before removing it from the water.

3) Quickly pull up on the plunger, and it will create a vaccum suction.

4) Repeat this process until the clog is gone. If plunging does not work after several tries, move on to method 2.

Method 2: Wrench and Plunger

This method uses a wrench and plunger together, which is very useful if your clog is too big for the plunger to remove by itself. First, make sure you get the correct size of wrench for the toilet’s tank. You can buy wrenches at your local hardware store that are sold specifically for this purpose. Also, make sure you have a plunger ready to go. To use the wrench and plunger together, follow these steps:

1) Make sure that the wrench is covering the bolts where the flush handle attaches to the toilet tank.

2) Use your other hand to plunge the toilet.

3) Repeat this process until the clog is gone. If plunging does not work after several tries, move on to method 3.

Method 3: Plunging Auger

This method involves using a special type of plunger called an auger or toilet plunger. Place the tip of the auger into the toilet. Turn the handle to push the clog further into the toilet bowl or remove it completely.

A straightened coat hanger can be a good substitute for an auger if you do not have one available. To use a coat hanger as a plunger, follow these steps:

1) Straighten out a small section of a coat hanger so that it is no wider than the toilet bowl itself.

2) Bend one end of the straightened part into a circle so that you can easily grip it with your hand. This bend will also allow you to get a better grip on the handle. Another option would be to use pliers if they’re available.

3) Slowly put the end of the coat hanger or pliers into the toilet bowl, and slowly pull it out again to hopefully remove the clog. If this method does not work after several tries, you can move on to method 4.

Method 4: Drilling and Auger

This method is very similar to the plunging auger, but instead of using a toilet auger, you will use a power drill to create a hole into the clogged toilet. Although this method requires a lot more time and effort than all the others, it is also one of the most effective ways to remove any kind of clog from your toilet bowl. To use this method, follow these steps:

1) Make sure you have a drill machine.

2) Put the tip of the drill into the toilet bowl until you feel it hit any kind of material that is inside. If you cannot feel anything after pushing in for about two inches, try removing it and putting it again further down toward the clog.

3) Keep pushing the drill into the toilet until you feel a suction. If removing the first time does not work, try a second time as well. If removing the first two times does not work, try a third time as well before moving on to other methods.

4) Remove the drill from the bowl and turn it off.

5) Flush the toilet to remove the clog. If this method does not work after several tries, move on to method 5.

Method 5: Drano and Plunger

This method uses a product called Drano, which is a powerful chemical that you can buy at your local hardware store or grocery store. Make sure you follow the instructions on the package carefully, as some brands work differently than others. To use Drano with a plunger, follow these steps:

1) Slowly pour Drano down your toilet’s overflow tube or directly into the clogged toilet bowl.

2) Wait about 5 minutes for it to work on dissolving any kind of clog.

3) Follow the instructions on the Drano’s package so you can flush your toilet to flush out any remaining chemicals and debris from the Drano.

4) If this method does not work after several tries, move on to method 6.

Method 6: Liquid Plumr and Plunger

This method uses a product called Liquid Plumr, which is another powerful chemical cleaner that you can use to remove clogs. However, follow the directions on the package carefully as not all brands work exactly the same way or have similar ingredients and chemicals inside. To use Liquid Plumr with a plunger, follow these steps:

1) Slowly pour Liquid Plumr down your toilet’s overflow tube or directly into the clogged toilet bowl.

2) Wait about 30 minutes for it to work on dissolving any kind of clog.

3) Follow the instructions on the Liquid Plumr’s package so you can flush your toilet to flush out any remaining chemicals and debris from the Liquid Plumr.

4) If this method does not work after several tries, move on to method 7.

Method 7: Hot Water and Plunger

This final method uses hot water to dissolve any clog in your toilet bowl. Make sure you use boiling hot water for the best results, as it has a higher viscosity than hot water, which makes it even more effective at dissolving any kind of clog. To use this method with a plunger, follow these steps:

1) Slowly pour boiling hot water down your toilet’s overflow tube or directly into the clogged toilet bowl.

2) Wait about 1 hour for the hot water to work on dissolving any kind of clog.

3) Follow the instructions on your plunger’s package so you can flush your toilet to flush out any remaining chemicals and debris from using both the hot water and plunger.

So these are some methods that you can use to unclog the toilet.
