Toilet talk isn’t always pleasant. Neither is dealing with a toilet backup. Yet, getting down and dirty and facing the realities of clogs and backups is an important part of effectively dealing with and preventing them.

Suppose you’ve never experienced a clog in your life; good on you. You probably have annual drain cleaning services, and make sure never to flush what shouldn’t be flushed. That’s not the case for all of us, and it can be hard to understand exactly what should and shouldn’t go down the toilet to avoid a clog or backup. Sometimes, a backup isn’t your fault at all and instead is caused by a pesky tree root or corrosion from the city’s hard water supply.

Having a reliable Brampton plumber in your back pocket for such occasions is valuable for anyone who wishes to have their toilet backup solved quickly. Mr. Rooter of Brampton ON offers 24/7 emergency plumbing service to help you deal with this trying situation. And what’s more, they’ll deal with the actual problem to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Read on to discover more about how professional toilet backup services work.

Efficient Toilet Backup Services

You’ve just flushed the toilet, and then it happens: the water in your toilet begins to rise, and you watch it spill out onto the floor. Then comes the outpour of raw sewage that has accumulated in your pipes and all the harmful bacteria that come with it. What a nightmare. Who’s to blame for this wretched occurrence? While it’s easy to point fingers at small children or a 20-year-old toilet, sometimes the issue arises from circumstances out of your control.

The most common reason you are facing a toilet backup is because of a clog. There’s only so much room in your sewer pipes, and if somewhere down the line debris, corrosion, hair, or “flushable” wipes have accumulated, everything you flush down your toilet will compile until the final flush that pushes it over the edge—of your toilet bowl! Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Brampton ON recommends regular drain cleaning services to prevent this from happening, but they understand that emergencies can happen to even the most prepared.

Here’s what you can expect during your toilet backup service:

Prompt Arrival

Some plumbing fixture issues can’t wait. The faster your backup is dealt with, the better; otherwise, you’ll never know the underlying issue. That’s why Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Brampton

ON offers 24/7 plumbing emergency service. If your toilet is backing up in the middle of the night or in the middle of the day, our licensed plumbers will arrive quickly to help stop the flow of water and minimize damage. If you have not already switched on your backwater valves, we will. Once the backup is stopped, we’ll get on with resolving the problem.

Inspection & Assessment

A toilet backup can happen for a number of reasons. Not all of them should be dealt with the same way. For example, while your local plumber may use HydroScrub Jetting to blast away a stubborn clog, they cannot deal with a tree root the same way—it just won’t work. Understanding what’s causing your clog will help them determine which route to choose, and they do this through the use of specialized drain camera inspection equipment.

Correct Resolution

  • Drain Cleaning: Nine out of ten times, the cause behind your sewer backup is a clog. If your drain pipes are in good condition, we’ll clear them with a powerful stream of water. This special method not only blasts away the clog but also cleans every nook and cranny of your pipes so that clogs happen less often. While HydroScrub Jetting may be appropriate for major issues, minor issues may not require it. Instead, they may use a drain auger for a gentler drain cleanout.
  • Sewer Line Replacement: These are three words that no Brampton homeowner wants to hear. However, not all sewer line replacement is invasive. If your pipes are in rough shape and have small cracks or extensive corrosion, trenchless drain pipe repair will be recommended. If your pipes have been invaded by a tree root, an expert plumber will need to dig down to remove the root and others in the vicinity. While this is a more invasive process that can involve pipe replacement, with Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Brampton, it’s done with the utmost respect for your property and time.

Frequently Asked Questions About Toilet Backup Services

Why is My Toilet Backing Up / Overflowing?

Most often, you will experience a toilet backup because there is a clog. It’s possible that your pipes have corroded or that a tree root has caused them to shift. When hiring the experienced plumbers at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Brampton ON, you can have peace of mind knowing we’ll get to the bottom of the problem, dealing with your toilet repair effectively.

Should You Flush a Backed-Up Toilet?

When your toilet is backing up, there is something stopping the water from going down it. That means flushing a second time will only cause the water level to rise and excess water to flood your bathroom. Do not flush your clogged toilet more than once, and call your local plumber right away. They’ll be able to help you determine whether you have a clogged sewer drain.

What Should You Never Flush Down a Toilet?

  • Cotton swabs or cotton balls
