In most cases, no. You don’t have to provide any tools or equipment as your hired plumber can bring all the tools and equipment required. Some of them have years of experience in plumbing, so they know how to use the most effective tools and techniques. What you may provide are extra rags or old newspapers to soak up any toilet overflow.
The time it takes to unblock a toilet depends on the severity of the blockage. A simple clog can take less than an hour to clear, while more serious blockages may take one to two hours. An extremely severe blockage may take longer to clear, especially if there is heavier and more advanced equipment required, such as a plumber’s snake.
Yes! If you’re a plumber and have more jobs than you can handle, you can hire a Tasker to take on work you’d otherwise have to refuse. Just make a post on our platform with all the important information. Describe your job in detail and list the sort of skills and experience you’d like your ideal Tasker to possess. Taskers that fit your description will come to you with a free quote, and you can negotiate from there.
Yes, it’s possible. A couple of ways involve making an improvised plunger. You can wrap the end of a toilet brush with a plastic bag, then use it as you would a plunger. You can also do the same with a mop by wrapping the mop head securely then using it in the same way. While these can be effective for minor blockages, it’s still best to hire a plumber.
It’s important to follow strict measures in your home to avoid a blocked toilet. Avoid using and flushing thick wads of toilet paper or baby wipes. Insist on using biodegradable toilet paper. If you have any children, teach them not to use the toilet flush as a plaything and instruct them never to flush toys or any other items down the toilet.
Yes, but only if the blockage is minor. This may be solved with a plunger or other DIY techniques. If your toilet remains blocked after using simple methods, stop trying to fix the problem yourself. The blockage may be further down your pipes, such as hard-to-reach sewer pipes, the septic tank, or toilet drain pipes. For more severe blockages, it’s best to consult and hire an expert.
Toilet unblocking services cover all the tasks and activities necessary to clear a clogged toilet. This includes finding out the cause of the blockage, preparing the site for toilet unblocking work, then applying the right fixes. Your hired plumber can also do a final test to ensure the toilet block is fixed and the drainage system works well.
Your hired plumber begins the toilet unblocking service by inspecting the toilet, water levels, and the entire drainage system to determine the cause of the blockage. This can either be a simple drain inspection or an in-depth CCTV drain survey. Before inspecting, they’ll shut off the main water supply, tape the flapper shut, place absorbent towels to soak up any overflows and lastly, ensure that the toilet bowl and work area is well ventilated.
Toilet blockage can either be due to items that fell into the toilet and have obstructed the waste outlet or by limescale in your pipes. If the cause of the blockage can’t be determined from casual inspection, drainage engineers can dislodge and force out the block using a plunger. If this doesn’t work, they can use other methods of clearing the obstruction.
They can apply an enzyme waste removal product, a homemade solution of baking soda and vinegar, dishwashing liquid and hot water, or a chemical drain cleaner. If the blockage is severe and these methods don’t work, they can use stronger, more specialised tools and equipment.
These tools can include a plumber’s snake or a pressure washer. A plumber’s snake can push and force out the obstruction while a pressure washer blasts a jet of pressurised water that’s powerful enough to dislodge and clear the blockage.
Once the appropriate declogging method is completed, your toilet is tested to check if the blocked toilet drain is now fixed. Should the toilet still not flush normally, your specialist can repeat the troubleshooting process and try other unclogging methods until the toilet flushes without issues.
If there is any toilet overflow during the troubleshooting and unclogging, your plumber can clean up the mess. This includes disposing of any absorbent towels, old newspapers, or other materials used to soak up the overflow. Some plumbers may also offer to mop the bathroom floor and disinfect it afterwards.
Once your toilet works as it should again, why stop there? Go ahead and hire someone to clean your floors and make your bathroom look like new again! And in case you want your entire home tidied up and not just your bathroom, you can also get a cleaner to do the mopping and vacuuming for you.
