Common Causes of Bathroom Plumbing Clogs

The bathroom in your Holladay, UT home sees more plumbing difficulties than any other part of the house, and it’s not hard to see why. The bathroom contains three of the most important plumbing fixtures in your home – the tub/shower, the sink and the toilet – and you make use of all of them on a daily basis. Clogs can form with disturbing ease, and while the most benign can be handled with a plunger, the vast majority require professional attention to properly correct. You can help by understanding the common causes of bathroom clogs and monitoring what ends up slipping down the drain. We’ve broken it down by specific outlet for you.

Toilets

Most toilet clogs are caused by human waste and toilet paper, which are fairly easy to clear up (one of the few cases where a trusty plunger can do the job). Children often flush inappropriate objects such as toys or shoes down the toilet, however, and that usually requires a plumber to correct. In addition, items such as Q-tips, floss and feminine hygiene products can clog up a toilet very easily, and should always be throw away instead of flushed.

Sinks

Clogs in sinks tend to be predicated by human hair, which is surprisingly tough and which can clump together to form the basis of a strong clogs. Soap scum, beauty products like skin cream, shampoo and toothpast can also contribute to serious clogs. Watch how quickly you wash them down the drain and rinse hot water to help break them up in your pipes.

Showers and Bathtubs

Shower drains usually get clogged by the same materials that sink drains do, with the exception of toothpaste. They can be more vulnerable to hard water, however, since you tend to run the shower faucet for longer than you would a sink. A good water filtration system can help with that.
