Ready to learn how to unclog a toilet without a plunger?
Why does my toilet keep clogging in the first place?
The flapper is the part of your toilet that lets water flow from the tank on the back down into the toilet bowl, creating the flush. If the flapper doesn’t open all the way it won’t release enough water, which means you’ll get a weak flush. Clogs are most common in toilets with a weak flush.
Toilets work by the force of gravity. A full bowl of water exerts its own pressure on the clog and, over time, often will clear the clog for you. So if you have more than one bathroom in the house, just wait it out overnight, or as long as you can. Then, try to flush again.
But if you can’t wait to unclog the toilet, follow these steps
How to unclog a toilet without a plunger
- Fill a bucket with hot water.
- Pour a generous amount of dish soap into the bowl.
- Carefully pour the hot water into the toilet bowl to dissolve soap. The soap should quickly begin to unclog the toilet drain by helping the clogged object start sliding down the pipes.
- Repeat the process, if necessary. When the water in the toilet bowl goes down, the blockage has been dislodged.
- Flush the toilet a few times after it’s unclogged to remove any residue.
A plunger is not always effective for clogs, and sometimes other home remedies don’t work well either. Luckily we have professional tools and equipment to eliminate blockage anywhere in the plumbing system.
