Why Does Your Toilet Bowl Choke?
Flushing Of Foreign Items
Toilet bowls are only meant for toilet rolls and human waste. Reckless flushing of any other items down the toilet bowl may potentially result in chokes as, to put it simply, larger items will be trapped in the filters installed in the piping. Hence, you should always separate your toilet trash, should there be any, and throw them out in a typical rubbish bin.
Even then, you should not be flushing down large amounts of toilet papers down the toilet bowl, as once again, these may be stuck against the filters installed. Given that it is in large amounts, this may be enough to block out the filter completely. Hence, one good practice that you may endeavor to stick to is to flush frequently when using the toilet bowl.
Weak Flushing Mechanisms
If the velocity of the water being flushed down the drain is too low, it is likely that the objects or toilet paper is not able to be pushed past the filter. Hence, you will once again experience an accumulation of items at various points in the flushing path, due to a lack of a forceful flush. This is again one reason why toilet bowls choke frequently.
One of many reasons is that the toilet bowl flapper is not working properly. The flapper is the part that releases upon a flush to push all the water in the tank down into the bowl to generate the flushing for the removal of waste and toilet paper from the bowl. If the flapper does not release itself fully, the water released down into the bowl is low in volume, hence the impression of a weak flush.
Why Your Choke Problem Needs Immediate Attention?
One key sign of a choked toilet bowl is that the water is not drainable from the bowl. Most likely, the next unsuspecting user will flush the toilet bowl. What happens next is that all the water from the tank will be released into the bowl and creates an overflow. The water, unsanitary as it is, will leak all over the floor and parquets. In worse situations, the water may leak out to the floors outside as well.
This is especially dangerous if your floor is either made of wood or marble, as prolonged exposure to water can leave extensive damage or marks on such materials.
In the case of a faulty flapper, water from the tank is constantly flowing down into the pipes. As such, the tank always has to be drawing water from the valve to keep itself above a certain level. The symptom of a weak flush may actually present itself to be a larger, water wastage problem. This wasted water also adds to your utility bills. In this day, where natural resources are scarce, we should take note on the conservation and thrift use of resources such as water.
Adds To Stress And An Non-Conducive Environment
Working and living environments are very important to any worker or resident respectively. As such, as with any plumbing issue, especially for one that may potentially affect the fixtures in the house, a choked toilet bowl adds worry and uncertainty to the environment. You deserve to be in comfort all the time and having an unsolved problem around disrupts your concentration.
