How to tell if you have a Blocked Toilet
If your toilet makes a gurgling sound when you flush it, then this is one of the first signs you have a blocked toilet. Also, if the water level is either above or below it's usual level in the toilet bowl then this is also a sign that your toilet is blocked.
Alternatively, if the water in the toilet bowl is reducing at a very slow rate after you have flushed this means your toilet is also very likely to be blocked.
If you do have a blocked toilet, the worst thing you can do is to flush the toilet. This is because you may cause sewerage to spill over the toilet bowl onto your bathroom floor.
Main Causes of a Blocked Toilet
Blocked toilets can be caused by hair, tissues, toilet paper, sanitary products anything else that may have been flushed down the toilet that shouldn't have been. Over time, the blockage builds up and the flow of water gets slower and slower until it stops altogether.
Other causes of blocked toilets include plant roots working their way into sewerage pipes and eventually blocking them. In addition, if you have old sewer pipes they could have become cracked and damaged over time from the materials passing through them.
