Blocked Toilet Satisfaction

A blocked toilet can be caused by a surprising array of issues but, ultimately, it will be down to either a foreign object, a lack of water or a lack of air.

Most people know that the only things we should be depositing into a toilet are human waste and toilet paper. However, a staggering number of people like to use their toilet as a makeshift garbage disposal. Dead goldfish? Nope. Food waste? Hell, no. Nappies? No way!

And that’s not even taking into account the chance of blocked drains further down the line and potential tree roots inside your pipes.

Meanwhile, poor water flow could stop waste being carried out to the sewer system, leading to a nasty clog. Or it could be a vent stack problem.

It sounds odd, but without suitable vent air, your system could suffer from sewage backup. If your toilet trap is clear and the flow is good, a vent stack blockage could be the cause of your blocked toilet.

No matter the issue, Metropolitan has over 25 years of experience in toilet plumbing and our local technicians can assess and solve any problematic plumbing.

Our experience will help you get back on the throne, and enjoying your time in the bathroom again.

FAQ - Your Blocked Toilet Questions, Answered

Have a question about blocked toilets that you're afraid to ask? We've got the answer.

Foreign objects: Most people know that the only things we should be depositing in a toilet are human waste and toilet paper. However, a staggering number of people like to use their toilet as a makeshift garbage disposal. Dead goldfish? Nope. Food waste? Hell, no. Nappies? No way! Low flow: A low water flow can contribute to a blocked toilet. Some older model toilets can cause this issue. A low flow can potentially stop waste from being carried to the sewer system. Vent stack issues: A blocked drain can sometimes be caused by a lack of air and not water. It sounds odd, but without suitable vent air, your system could suffer from sewage backup. If your toilet trap is clear and the flow is good, a vent stack blockage could be the cause of your blocked toilet.
Many blockages are caused by human waste or toilet paper, which should breakdown in no time and leave you worry free. However, for more stubborn blockages the drain may need to be cleared externally and a plunger just won't cut it. Whether it's a tree root, build up of wet wipes and toilet paper - or something else altogether - you will likely require an electric drain cleaner or hydro jet drain cleaning machine. They will provide a thorough clean out, removing all offending material.
For tenants and landlords alike, a blocked toilet is usually nothing more than a minor inconvenience which can be resolved with the use of a plunger. However, for more complex issues, it may be necessary for a plumber to inspect a blocked toilet. In this case, whose responsibility is it? Well, it depends. We always advise tenants and landlords to refer to local regulations which may vary from state to state. In general, it is the landlord’s responsibility to maintain the property’s plumbing and drainage. If, however, a blocked toilet is the result of tenant misuse (for example, flushing foreign objects such as wet wipes down the toilet), then it is the tenant’s responsibility to fix the problem.
