Toilet Stopped Up
If you have ever had a backed up toilet, you probably already know that there are few things as frustrating (and messy) as a non-functioning toilet. Not only can you not use it, but trying to can cause it to overflow making a huge mess! To say that toilet blockages are no fun is an understatement.
If you have a toilet stopped up, you need it addressed quickly, and correctly.
Sometimes a simple toothbrush can cause the back up (yes that one that you lost years ago). When a toilet is old, jet ports can easily get clogged causing the main sewer line to back up. There is a wide variety of reasons your toilet can clog, but the bottom line is that it needs to be fixed… fast!

Tips for Preventing Toilet Stoppages
Being true professionals and caring for our customers’ well-being is what Gogo Rooter is all about. Keeping that in mind, we have a few tips to share with you that may help you to keep your toilet healthy and clog-free.
1 – Keep the lid down – If you are not using the toilet, you should always keep the lid down. Not only does a toilet lid look better than the inside of a toilet, but having the lid down does a great job of keeping things from accidentally falling in. No more fishing around in the toilet to get your toothbrush back!
2 – Keep small objects off the back of the toilet – Keeping the lid down is great, but as a double precaution, keep things away from the toilet as much as possible. Picture going through all the trouble of keeping the lid down all the time, just to lift the lid and have something fall in front the back of the toilet! That would be frustrating… to say the least.
3– Do not flush things that are not meant to be flushed – This includes Q-tips, dental floss, facial tissues, feminine hygiene products (even the ones that say they are “flushable” still cause huge backups), or anything else other than toilet paper.
4 – Use toilet paper sparingly – Yes, even toilet paper when overused can cause a toilet to clog.
5 – Use the correct plunger – If your toilet does clog, use the correct plunger. A toilet plunger has a flange end that fits in the drain opening. The plungers with flat ends are for sinks and do a poor job of unclogging toilets.
When all else fails, and you find a clog that your plunger won’t fix, go over to our Coupons page, find the money saving coupon you want to use, and give Gogo Rooter a call! Our team knows how to fix a stopped up toilet.
