Having a clogged toilet or drain is not only frustrating but it can be very costly to get unclogged. I am here to share some common clogs and how to avoid them.

Take these preventative steps to keep your drains free from clogs and reduce the risk of ending up with a costly clog. Nothing is worse than washing your hands or taking a shower to see the sink or tub filling up with water.

You have to act fast when you see the water level in the toilet beginning to reach the brim. To me, there is nothing worse than a toilet overflowing because of a clog that could have been prevented. Follow these simple guidelines to do your best to prevent clogs.

How to Avoid Common Clogs In Your Plumbing


Hair in the sink or tub can easily clog your drain in no time flat. It builds up and becomes a tangled mess and traps residue from body wash, shampoo, etc. Add drain covers to your sinks and tub. This will help prevent hair from moving into your drain pipes.

Non-Flushable Items

Plumbers find items that shouldn’t have been flushed the cause of many clogs. Only flush toilet paper down, all other items tossed in the trash. Feminine products, napkins, paper towels, all go in the trash. Otherwise you will be having to get the plunger to try and free the clog. No one wants to do that.


We can’t leave out the kitchen because we all know someone who dumped grease down their drain and clogged it massively. To avoid the possibility of clogging your kitchen drain, scrape food into a compost or trash, and never put grease down the drain. If you have a garbage disposal use it carefully and avoid small lids or objects in that part of the sink, so you reduce the risk of dropping something in that drain.
