How to Unclog a Toilet

Plumbing Service How-To Videos

A lot of people don’t realize that there is a proper way to unclog a toilet. You can tell that your toilet is clogged based on how high the water level is. All you need is a plunger.

Follow these steps to unclog your toilet:

  1. Push the plunger into the toilet bowl slowly until you create a seal.
  2. Pull up on the plunger, creating a suction coming out.
  3. Doing this motion once should unclog the toilet.
  4. Do not use multiple, short plunges because this can jam the clog into the toilet, making the problem worse.
