Most people will agree there aren’t too many things worse than flushing the toilet and watching the water swirl around and around and not go down. The only thing worse than that is watching the dirty water come up and over the rim and pour down onto the floor. When this happens, it’s usually time to call for residential plumbing repair in Reno NV. They have the knowledge and equipment to get the line clear and the water flowing the right way again.
Unfortunately, most clogs in the toilet come from something that was flushed by the user. This means many clogs can be prevented by being aware of what is flushed down the toilet. One of the biggest culprits of clogs is feminine hygiene products. Though many say they are safe to be flushed, this so-called disposable item frequently lodges in a pipe. Over time this causes a dam of sorts that won’t allow any additional waste to pass. Eventually, the water has nowhere to go but up and over the rim when the toilet is flushed. Other items such as cleansing wipes or excessive toilet paper can also cause or add to this problem. Wipes should be thrown away instead of flushed and flushing excessive amounts of toilet paper should be discouraged.
If the toilet is clogged, most homeowners call for Residential Plumbing Repair in Reno NV. The plumber usually will “snake” the line to either push through or remove the culprit of the clog.

This high-powered water hose will clear the line by pushing the debris through the pipe by using the force of the water, leaving the pipe free and clear.
