Plumbers Explain How Toilet Paper Can Clog Toilets, Canyon Lake, Texas

There may not be anything more distressing than flushing your toilet and seeing the water rise up the bowl. Clogged toilets can cause a lot of damage if they are not fixed quickly, and the culprit may be the brand of toilet paper you are using. The residential plumbers at Don's Plumbing, who help residents in Bulverde, TX, with their clogged drains and other plumbing issues, discuss how toilet paper can be responsible for causing clogs in your toilet.

Many people may not think toilet paper can be responsible for clogs but different types can put your sewer system at risk, especially if you have older pipes in your home. Extra soft and thick varieties of toilet paper could create problems for your plumbing system because they don’t dissolve quickly.

plumberThe amount of toilet paper that you flush could also be a major contributor to clogs. No matter what type of toilet paper you use, you are likely to encounter plumbing problems if you flush a large quantity of paper all at once.

One of the most important ways to prevent clogs is to limit the amount of toilet paper you flush. Flushing only a small amount of toilet paper can keep your sewer system running smoothly and prevent the need for an emergency plumber’s toilet repair services.

It's also a great idea to research the brand of toilet paper you purchase before you head out to the store. The ideal brand of toilet paper for your plumbing is soft, strong, and dissolves quickly. You can test your current brand by soaking it in water for 30 minutes to see how much it breaks down.
