What Causes Clogged Toilets?
There are two main types of clogs that we most commonly see. They are:
- Simple clogs: These types are often caused by things such as using too much toilet paper. In many cases, children are to blame for these clogs because they are still learning how to properly use the toilet and how much toilet paper is necessary. Other items that may cause a simple clog include personal hygiene items or non-water soluble items such as diapers.
- Foreign objects: These clogs are also often caused by children, but in this case, it starts by having a foreign object flushed down the toilet. Common objects that tend to get flushed include toys, toothbrushes, and even shampoo bottles.
