Clogged drains are perhaps the most common plumbing problems that homeowners inevitably face every now and then. Aside from the kitchen, this can also happen to your bathroom, with the toilet, bathtub, and sink also susceptible to clogging if not used and maintained the right way. Before seeking the help of plumbing professionals, know first the common reasons behind clogs in bathroom fixtures to help you take steps in preventing them.
Often, clogs in toilets are caused by flushing down multiple ply toilet paper. Single-ply toilet paper is often recommended by plumbing experts, since these dissolve easier than thicker brands. Any multiple ply or strong-as-a-paper-cup paper towels on the other hand, don’t break down as easily, making it possible for them to accumulate and block the toilet trap.
