If your toilet starts to back up don’t panic.
- You will want to remove the lid on the back of the toilet and push down the flapper to stop any more water from filling the bowl.
- Try using a plunger to clear the stoppage.
- If the plunger doesn’t do the trick, try a toilet auger. You can pick one up from most home improvement stores, for about $30. It may take a little practice to get the hang of it but it could save you some money down the road.
After you have the line cleared you will want to test flush several times to make sure all is flowing well. The toilet and the bath tub normally share a drain line so you will also want to run some water down the tub drain to make sure that is draining properly as well.
If you still have an issue then you may want to call a plumber. The clog may be further down the line which will take a longer snake to clear the problem.
