How to Unclog a Toilet Without a Plunger

The first thing you must do to unclog your toilet without a plunger is to turn off your water supply, doing such will prevent the overflow of the debris that can result in flooding. To avoid stress, you should call plumbers in Youngstown from Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Youngstown once the water supply has been turned off.

There are some ways you can unclog a toilet without the need for a plunger. You can perform the bailout step where you can manually remove some of the water so that you can make provision for more bowls to remove the blockage in the toilet. You need to follow the last step by lubricating with some squirts of dish soap if available, then loosen the debris causing the clog by pouring a gallon of hot water (do not use boiling water), inside the bowl, make it hot enough comfort because extremely hot water can break the porcelain. Allow the hot water to remain in the bowl for about 20 minutes

Complete the unclogging process

Once the 20 minutes time has lapsed for the hot water to sit in the toilet bowl, flush the toilet and if the flush is still slow, repeat the pouring of hot water, pay attention to the water valve so that you can turn it off again if the toilet is still not flushing.

Shake things up a little by pouring a cup of baking soda along with 2 cups of vinegar into the toilet bowl to help break the clogs even more this will create some bubbles but the concentrate may create some backflow, hence you may have to remove excess water from the bowl once again. Just in case these steps have failed but you have a coat hanger at home, then you can use it to stir things in order to push the clogging debris down the drain. You can apply duct tape around the end of the wire in order to avoid the scratching of the porcelain. You need to wear a pair of gloves if you are using this method of unclogging the toilet. Make sure you twist and turn the wire in a circular motion until you feel the clog.

Try as much as possible to avoid overflow problems while unclogging the toilet even when things are getting a little messy.
