Let’s say you put too much quilted toilet paper into the toilet bowl… wondering what to do?

First off, get yourself a plumber’s helper… (aka a plunger). It’s one of the most important tools every responsible homeowner should have lying around. A basic brand is all you’ll need, no need for those fancy ones. After all, it is just a plunger!

Now, you’re ready to get plunging! This exercise may seem easy, but there are some helpful techniques to keep in mind to improve the outcome...

Remember, don’t go up and down! The toilet’s hole is in the back. Angle your plunger to create proper suction.

Then, once you create strong suction, give it three pumps and a flush - it should clear the problem right up.

Hopefully these tips were useful, and helped you avoid a service call. If you’re still experiencing issues, be sure to give our team a call!
