Dealing with Blocked toilet Ilford

A blocked toilet can be so frustrating. It isn’t the most glamorous thing to deal with, but once you really know how to deal with it, it is a rather simple job to handle. A blocked toilet Ilford is a rather common occurrence, but it is nothing to lose sleep over.

What to do
You need the right equipment for the job at hand. You need a plunger that has the right shape, some gloves, old newspapers for the floor, caustic soda, drain unblocker or bleach and a fan or a window for ventilation.
You should never flush. Once a toilet is blocked, no amount of flushing can help. There must be something that is stuck down there. You should pull the item stuck using your hands.

You need to find out exactly where the blockage is. The drain cover should be lifted so as to see whether the chamber has water. If it has water, then the blockage is a bit further in the solid pump, but if empty the blockage is within the soil pump just between the chamber and loo or within the pan. Specialist drain rods and makeshift devices can help with draining. If it isn’t helping, then you may need to call in the best drain company.

Use the plunger. You need to use it against the blockage area and do it firmly. The plunger should be able to seal off the toilet bowl opening so as to have the ideal pressure and vacuum that is much needed. This helps in the prevention of a great mess. An auger is a rod that can be able to reach much further into the toilet and it has a crank handle.
You can also use a coat hanger if there is no plunger. If the blockage isn’t too bad, then dissolving the blockage can do the trick. You should then clean up everything and scrub the toilet and make sure that you air out the bathroom.
