The Throne Room Rumble: Mythbusting Common Toilet Troubles

Let’s face it, plumbing problems are no laughing matter. But sometimes, a little humor can go a long way, especially when it comes to the often-dreaded toilet malfunction. At Schrader Plumbing, we’re here to unclog the confusion and shed some light on those rumbling noises coming from your throne room.

Myth #1: The Toilet is a Garbage Can

Ever seen a commercial where someone happily flushes down a wad of paper towels? Wrong! Toilets are designed for waste, not wastebaskets. Besides the obvious overflow risk, items like wipes, feminine hygiene products, and dental floss can wreak havoc on your pipes, causing blockages that would make even Superman say ‘uh oh’.”

Myth #2: The Plunger is a Magic Wand

The trusty plunger is a wonderful tool, but it’s not a magic solution for every clog. A plunger works by creating suction to dislodge clogs near the surface. If the blockage is deeper in the pipes, you might need to call in the cavalry (that’s us!).

Myth #3: Chemical Drain Cleaners are Your Friend

Those harsh chemical drain cleaners might seem like a quick fix, but they can actually damage your pipes over time, causing leaks and creating a bigger mess. Save the chemicals for science experiments, not your plumbing!

Here’s the Real Deal:

If your toilet is acting up, don’t panic. Here are some tips:

  • Listen Up: Gurgling noises or slow draining could indicate a clog.
  • Check the Bowl: A rapidly rising water level might mean a blockage preventing the water from draining properly.
  • The Gentle Plunge: If it’s a minor clog, a good plunging might do the trick. But if multiple plunges yield no results, it’s time to call Schrader Plumbing.
