A toilet clog is one of the most common plumbing problems that somone can experience. However, it is important to know when a clog is too serious for a DIY solution so that you don’t cause internal damage to your plumbing system. Here are three reasons why you should call a professional.
You Could Damage Your Toilet and Pipes
If your toilet plunger isn’t doing the job, it’s best to avoid the other home remedies and call in a professional. Using a drain snake or chemicals can damage your toilet and sewer line if you are not careful. In some cases, these solutions might work temporarily, but they could damage your plumbing system in the long run.
You could make the problem worse
You know what’s grosser than a clog? A backup. If you are trying to solve the problem yourself, you risk making the clog worse and causing an overflow of waste water. Waste water backups are not only nasty to clean, they are also a health hazard and can cause damage to the interior of your property. While trying to clear the clog, you may also dislodge it, only for it to relocate itself deeper into your system. If you notice the problem getting worse, it is better to contact someone with the right equipment and knowledge to get the job done right.
The problem might be in the sewer line
If you are experiencing clogs often, it could be due to a problem in the sewer line. If this is the case, you need an expert to accurately inspect the line so that you get the right repair. Some common problems with sewer lines include, tree root invasions, corrosion, or landslides. Either way, if the same issues are reoccuring, then the root of the problem might be different than what you expect.
