When you notice that your toilet is not draining properly, your first instinct may be to grab a chemical to put into the toilet.

Instead, what you should do is call the plumbing professionals here at C. Lee Services. We can come out and help repair your clogged toilet, once and for all.
Reasons Your Sewer Pipes are Causing a Clogged Toilet
Typically, toilets get clogged because of a problem further down the pipe. The toilet paper and debris then try and make their way down the pipe after the flush, hit that clog, and leave you with a toilet that does not want to drain. Fixing the clog will usually open the toilet and get it draining as it should. Professional plumbers have the tools to get the clog broken up without causing damage to your pipes, and without using corrosive chemicals.
Why a DIY Treatment Is Dangerous
Chemicals that are put in pipes to break up clogs, do damage to more than just the materials caught up in the clog. They also corrode the pipes coming from your Ohio property. The pipes can only tolerate so much chemical exposure before they begin to break down themselves, and this is true for both old and brand-new pipes. Once the pipes begin to break down, this could leave you facing leaks, cracked pipes, or pipes that fully collapse and require replacement. This takes a small problem, like a clogged toilet, and makes it much larger.
