If your toilet isn’t flushing with as much power as normal, then you more than likely have a clog of some sort. There are several potential causes, and here are some of the most common ones.
• Toilet paper is typically the number one culprit when it comes to clogging a sewer line. Today’s brands are great for consumers because they are more durable than ever before. However, that attribute is not that great for a lot of sewer systems. The reason is that the paper does not break down as easily in a sewer line. As time goes on, more and more paper can accumulate until a clog forms.
• One problem you may not have considered is tree roots. Roots seek out moisture wherever they can find it, even if that means your sewer line. They can penetrate even small cracks in a line. As they grow, so will the size of the crack until a very troublesome obstruction occurs. In many instances, the only way to effectively get rid of this problem is by using a water jet. This sends a high-pressure stream of water down a plumbing line to obliterate difficult clogs.
