How to Unclog Your Toilet When Nothing Works - A Holiday Guide
Now that Christmas is approaching, you and your family may be housing extra guests. From kids coming home from college to extended family members visiting for a week, you’ll likely have extra mouths to feed. And we all know with extra food comes extra flushing and washing — well, hopefully washing. In order to solve all your holiday plumbing disasters, you need to eliminate the build-up that causes clogs in the first place.
Backed up pipes can wreak havoc on a household full of people. Especially a household with only one guest bathroom — or maybe only one bathroom in general. When you’re hosting a holiday party at your home, or even just having your kids come to visit, you’ll want to ensure your home is ready for all that extra traffic. The more people you have, the more likely you are to have a plumbing problem at some point during the holiday visit. Maybe your six-year-old neice flushes bundles of toilet paper, or maybe your uncle never realizes how much his “contribution” will impact your toilet. Either way, it’s a good idea to be prepared for those incidents and get them solved as soon as they occur so you can get back to all the holiday cheer.
How to Unclog Your Toilet When Nothing Works - A Guide
For local clogs:
A local clog is a clog that is affecting a single drain; it could be your second-floor toilet or your shower drain. These clogs are smaller and less devastating to your plumbing system and can be easily fixed by using the right product.
Don’t bother wasting time and money on calling a plumber during the holiday over a simple clog. A localized clog can be eliminated by using something like Dissolve, a fast-acting, dual-chambered drain clog remover that will liquefy organic material with little effort on your end. This product is not only effective and economical, but it’s also a biodegradable formula and safer for your pipes and the environment. How can we get better than that?
For toilets: Pour both Dissolve chambers into your toilet and allow it to sit for 30 minutes before flushing. Once you flush, your toilet clog will be a thing of Christmas past.
For sinks, showers, and tubs: Pour only one chamber into the drain and allow product to sit for 30 minutes before pouring hot water down the drain. Voila!
Dissolve will unclog your toilet in no time.
For main line clogs:
A main line clog is a bigger issue than a localized clog and will require a bit more attention and a stronger product. These kinds of clogs can be identified by an unpleasant smell along with issues across all drains in your home. Your toilet will clog, your sink won’t drain properly and your shower might randomly leak. The point is, main line clogs will likely affect more than just one area of plumbing. If you think you have a main line clog, don’t worry. You won’t have to stop Christmas dinner to find a plumber or snake your pipes. Just use the right product to unclog your toilet and other drains before it causes a headache.
To eliminate clogs from your plumbing system’s main line, use an industrial-strength formula that will eliminate organic matter wreaking havoc on your entire plumbing system. Main Line Drain Opener’s formula clings to blockages located in your main drain line and dissolves matter within 30 minutes of use. It's also non-corrosive and non-toxic, making it safer for the environment and for your pipes than other main line drain openers.
Simply pour the product into your first floor toilet, flush, then wait 30 minutes. You can go back to your holiday dinner with peace of mind, knowing that when you’re ready to do the deed, your drains and toilet will be all dressed up and ready to go.
