It’s never fun dealing with a blocked toilet drain – especially if you’re expecting company or are entertaining and you find yourself with a blocked toilet drain situation!

At the same time, getting help for your blocked toilet is never quite as simple or as straightforward as a lot of us think it’s going to be. This is particularly true if you are trying to unclog or unblock a toilet without a plunger (a situation none of us ever want to find ourselves in but one that many people may encounter right in the middle of some important event in the future).

Thankfully, when you arm yourself with the inside information that we highlight for you below – and if you keep our contact information for our professional plumbing service here at Silverwater Plumbing close at hand – you won’t have anything to worry about.

Why is my toilet blocked?

If you are wondering why your toilet is blocked in the first place, the truth of the matter is there could be a whole host of different contributing factors that have conspired to put you in this sticky and unpleasant situation.

Most commonly, debris or waste may have eventually built up in the toilet plumbing itself – or in the “plumbing trap” which is a big part of the way modern toilets operate – and eventually slow down or block the flow of water completely. This will stop your toilet operating right away.

From time to time, however, foreign objects can be dropped into toilets (especially if you’re dealing with small children in the home that love to explore and experiment) – and this will almost always lead to some kind of blocked toilet situation.

Of course, you may also change the kind of toilet paper that you are using. Some are more toilet-friendly than others, and some of them have the potential to stick in your plumbing, allowing debris and waste to collect, causing a clogged situation as well.

The first thing you’ll have to do to address a blocked toilet when tackling blocked toilet repair on your own is to figure out why you are dealing with the blockage the first place.

After that, everything gets a lot easier.

How to unblock a toilet without a plunger

If you want to figure out how to unblock a toilet all on your own (without having to call our professionals here at Silverwater Plumbing, you want to use the details below to help you really hit the ground running.

The best toilet un-blocker you can get your hands on without a plunger is a mixture of baking soda and vinegar, as well as a bucket of boiling water.

Add the baking soda into your toilet bowl and then add in a cup of vinegar to the mixture, allowing everything to fizz, foam, and create that chemical reaction we all have come to expect from this “homemade volcano”.

After allowing this mixture to do the heavy lifting in breaking up the obstructions in your plumbing, simply dump bucket of boiling water – slowly, we should add – into the toilet so that it forces scalding hot water through the plumbing. This is guaranteed to help you fix any blocked toilet situation, and is the toilet drain un-blocker approach we recommend if you aren’t going to call in our professionals to help you out.

If that doesn’t work, we are always just a phone call away!

Great service and very professional. Replaced my hot water from an indoor to outdoor unit and upgraded relevant gas and water pipes. Great attention to details too even though the job was quite big. For example sanding off the copper pipe after cutting it before installation. Price is fair and you get discount for multiple jobs. Highly recommend them.

I highly recommend Silverwater Plumbing services to everyone, they are friendly and experienced. Our toilet which is attached to the wall had been blocked for a while, we are happy that it is in use again. These guys detached it and resealed it all perfectly. We were offered the best quote and the best service ! Thank you for the 5 star service

The hot water in my shower was not working properly, a guy named Solomon from Silverwater Plumbing came out and did and amazing job. He was polite, professional and went as far as explaining to me in layman's term what the issue was. Very well informed with his work and problem was fixed in no time. Thank you Solomon!! Highly recommended.

We needed a new hot water system, a new toilet, a new gas fitting and repair of some taps. The boys from Silverwater Plumbing were great. They arrived on time, quoted everything up front and the quality of the work was excellent. I will use these guys for all of our plumbing needs in the future. Thank you.

Great service, very professional and efficient. They break down the costs of the service before carrying out any work so you know exactly what everything’s priced at. Highly recommended plumbing service. Would use again.

My family discovered that we had a water leak after our water bill doubled. I searched online for a reputable local plumber and decided to go with Silverwater Plumbing after reading positive reviews on Product Review and Google. And I was not disappointed. Silver Plumbing were punctual and came with a smile. After explaining our problem, they went straight to the task and did what they needed to do. They were professional, friendly and easy to communicate with. They identified the leak and explained what they were going to do. They were confident and experienced. In terms of their pricing, it appears to be reasonable. I cannot comment on how competitive their pricing were as I did not obtain quotes from other plumbers. But for the service they provided, I would definitely consider using these guys again for future plumbing needs.
