DIY steps

    If you've decided to try unblocking your toilet yourself, it's often pretty simple and straightforward. The most common and effective method for unblocking a clogged toilet is with a good old fashioned plunger. Put your rubber gloves on, grab some towels and get started:
  1. Don't let the toilet overflow. Don't keep flushing the toilet if it's not flushing properly as this will cause more water to be pumped into the toilet bowl and eventually overflow, flooding your bathroom.
  2. Take the lid off your toilet's tank and close the flapper which will stop more water coming into the toilet bowl.
  3. If you can see the obstruction, try reaching in and removing it. If you can't quite reach it, try using another implement other than the plunger to get the object out. You might use a wire coat hanger for example.
  4. If you're sure there's no hard object you can easily remove ' get out the plunger. Always use a high quality, heavy duty rubber plunger preferably with the fold out flange to create a better seal where possible as they will be much more effective.
  5. Insert the plunger into the toilet bowl. Make sure the plunger is submerged in water and completely covers the hole. Start slowing pumping the plunger at first, then push down and pull the plunger up quite vigorously to try and dislodge the blockage.
  6. Continue to vigorously push and pull the plunger until the water starts to drain. Patience is key here as this process may take some time.
  7. Try flushing the toilet to check the drainage is working properly again. If it's still clogged, fill the bowl to where it would normally be and plunge again. If you don't have a plunger on hand don't panic. There are other methods you can try like buying a drain clearing product or making your own from hot water, baking soda and vinegar, or there are other tools you can try like the plumbing snake or toilet auger that can access more of the pipe's length.

Tips for hiring a professional blocked toilet plumber

You've tried everything but the toilet is still blocked. Time to call in a plumber to do the job. Usually a plumber will want to identify the problem before they can give you a quote to complete the job. Some may charge a flat rate while others may have an hourly rate. Always get a written quote before agreeing to have the job completed no matter how urgent the job is.

When it’s a simple fix, the plumber can unblock the toilet with little complications, so the cost shouldn't be too high. However, if it's a more complex job where the clog is located deeper down in the sewerage lines this may require specialized equipment and will take much more time, which will obviously cost much more money. A plumbers costs will usually be higher if it's a weekend or a holiday or an emergency, late night call out. Check your chosen plumber is qualified, licensed and guarantees their work.
