What You Need to Know About Slow-Flushing Toilets

An occasional slow flush here and there usually isn’t much to worry about. However, if your toilet is sluggish when flushing on a regular basis, contact Specialized Pipe Technologies about drain cleaning. Below, we go over what you’ll want to know about slow-flushing toilets and what we can do to help.

Check Your Tank First

The water in your toilet’s tank needs to be at a certain level for the toilet to flush properly. So, start by checking the water level in your tank to make sure it’s not too low. If it is, you may need to adjust the valve for the toilet float or the source of water to your toilet.

Clogs Are Another Common Culprit

A clogged drain is one of the top reasons for a slow-flushing toilet. In fact, a drain doesn’t have to be completely blocked to affect how your toilet’s water goes down. Even a partially blocked drain can throw off the natural gravity that’s needed to keep things flowing smoothly and quickly.

Avoid DIY Attempts at Solving the Problem

If the reason for a slow-flushing toilet is a clog, avoid DIY efforts. We say this because overusing a plunger or resorting to the use of drain cleaning products can make things worse – or damage the drain line. Our trained technicians know how to safely use effective drain cleaning services, one of which is hydro jetting.
