3 Reasons Why Your Toilet won’t Flush

Have you come to find that your toilet won’t flush? Is this putting a damper on your ability to live a normal life?

If you find yourself in this position, it’s important to realize that there are many reasons why this may be happening.

Here are three of the top reasons why a toilet stops flushing as intended:

1. A Clog

Did you use too much toilet paper? Was something else flushed? If so, the pipe leading from the toilet could become clogged. Subsequently, your toilet will not be able to flush until you fix this problem.

2. The Water Level is Low

If the water level in the toilet’s tank is too low, the toilet will not be able to flush. There are many reasons why this could happen. For example, the water valve may have been turned off for some reason. In this case, simply turning it back on will solve your problem.

3. The Flapper is Bent

Over time, the flapper could become bent or warped. If this happens, it’s time to replace your flapper. Forget about trying to fix it. Instead, swap this out on your own or call a plumber to provide assistance.
