Clear Choked Floor Trap / Sink / Toilet Bowl



Clear Choked Floor Trap

Do you have a clogged toilet, sink, or floor trap? If so, worry not, as you can easily deal with this problem in your home using a plunger. How do you know whether your toilet is clogged? According to LS Handyman Singapore, a poor flush can be an indication that the toilet drain is either completely or partially plugged.

When the toilet is clogged, attempting to flush it will lead it to it filling with water, which may soon start to overflow and stain your carpets. What you need to do is give it a few minutes (at least ten) for the water to reduce, and then attack it using a plunger.


Using a Plunger to Unclog Your Toilet

For most toilets and sinks that have become plugged, all you need to use to remedy the situation is a plunger. Make sure that your plunger comes with an extension flange. This will help ensure that it fits perfectly in the toilet bowl.


Plunging Tips

When using this handy tool, you will need to exert some force when pushing in and out of the toilet bowl ensure that there is enough water in your sink or toilet bowl to cover it. In case this does not help you remedy the problem, try the following tips:

  1. Start with a gentle plunge. When starting out, the bell will normally be filled with air. As such, using too much force will cause the air to rise back in the seal and will eventually blow water on you as well as your bathroom.
  2. Once the air has been forced out, start plunging in a vicious manner. Applying pressure on the plunger causes the clogs to loosen. Try and repeat this step for between fifteen and twenty times.
  3. Exercise patience, and try as much as you can to alternate between the use of monster heaves and steady strokes.

In many cases, this is all that is needed to unclog a toilet bowl or sink.
