Blocked Toilet cleared from £29.95 in Gants Hill
A blocked toilet is an unpleasant household emergency and one that can be made worse if you do not know what to do.
The first point to note is that a blocked toilet may be blocked before you are fully aware of this. If you see that the water level in the bowl is higher than normal, or that the water takes a considerable time to flow away you should follow the following tips to avoid a major flood in your bathroom.
Do not flush again
Flushing the cistern again is not always the best course of action. Putting more water into the toilet bowl may not clear the blockage. You are adding more water to the problem and, if it has nowhere to flow away, you could overflow the toilet bowl and flood your bathroom. This is the most important step and can save you the most pain so ensure that all your family, especially the children are aware.
