Standard Blockage

We have all experience those emergency plumbing situations where somebody has decided to block up the toilet. So, let’s say this is your standard blockage and one of your kids has filled up the toilet with entire rolls of toilet paper. Thisis a normal sort of blockage. Just tons of paper. Them little rascals, you know?

So, a child has blocked it up with lots of toilet paper. It’s a disaster. You ask yourself is there a way to clear a blocking drain. What can you do to resolve this emergency plumbing situation?

You tell yourself that you are going to have to call a plumber. But…do you?

Tools to clear the blocked drainage

With this sort of a blockage, it doesn’t always have to be a disaster, and it doesn’t have to be an emergency. All you need is a small plunger. Now I’m going explain to you how to fix this quite promptly.

Alright, let’s go in there and get to work. This crazy looking plungeris exactly what you need if you want to achieve success in clearing your drainage blockages.

Steps to clear the blocked drain

All righty. Once your blocking toilet has receded a little bit, you will follow the next steps.


First, flush it to find out if it’s still blocked. If it is, then you will need to move on to the next step. If not, then your plumbing emergency has been resolved with no effort on your part. If it definitelystill is blocked, the let the bowl fill up with water.


Now, take the plunger and use it to suction the drainage point of the toilet. Get it down to the base of the toilet. A couple of plunges and there it is. Fixed.Give it another plunge. All right. It’s now working perfectly!
