blocked toilet

The most common device to break inside a house is the toilet. Everyone uses the bathroom, so it's no surprise that it gets damaged more often than other devices in the home. The toilet can break in several ways depending on the part. If the flush is broken, it won't be able to flush water, so the waste will remain in the bowl. If the drain is broken, the water level in the bowl will rise, and the flush won't work. If the seat is damaged, it must be replaced with a new one. So because a toilet can break in several ways, it is essential to know how to handle it properly with the right solution. A certified plumber is needed to repair a blocked toilet to avoid further damage and unnecessary costs. But if you want to try fixing a broken toilet on your own, here is a simple instruction manual.

Your toilet has 2 significant parts, the bowl and the tank. 

The bowl isn't that hard because usually there are no moving parts, but the tank contains 2 valves and a handle that lets you flush the toilet. If you know these parts well, fixing it will be easier. You'llyou'll have to see the problem to know which part to improve first. The different problem comes with an other solution. The most common problem is a constantly running toilet. The situation in a running toilet occurs because the flapper is not sitting correctly in the flush valve's opening. Another cause is the water level inside the tank is too high, allowing water to flow over the top of the tube and down into the tank. You can replace the valve and drain the water, and the toilet will stop running.

Another common problem is a loose flush handle. 

You must reattach it to the tank when a flush handle becomes loose or disconnected. All you have to do is reconnect the lift wire that connects the arm from the flapper. If that doesn't work, you can try adjusting the handle inside the tank to tighten it. Besides a loose toilet handle, a leaky toilet base is a common problem in Sydney. When this happens, all you have to do is remove the toilet to replace the wax ring because that's usually the cause of the leak. Although there are many problems regarding the bathroom, the most common and most searched-fixing method is when a toilet gets blocked. Blocked toilet repairs can be done alone at home, and several effective ways exist to unblock a toilet.

You can use a plunger to take out whatever is blocking the toilet.

 Plungers are usually very effective when used repeatedly. If the thing stopping the bathroom isn't some vast solid material, try draining hot water. Hot water can help loosen up sticky materials and improve the blockage. You can also try a DIY hanger handle to push the inside of the bowl. While making it, don't forget to constantly flush the toilet to see if the method is working.
