Blocked Toilet Repairs
Blocked toilets are one of the most annoying - if not the most frustrating - bathroom plumbing problems. Watching the water level rise higher and higher after you flush makes your heart skip a beat.
Thinking about what's gone wrong further down the pipeline is even scarier. Sometimes it's a touch nauseating.

What Causes a Blocked Toilet?
The cause of a blocked toilet can be both simple and difficult. In many cases, it certainly takes more than just using a plunger! With Jim's Plumbing by your side, we can get to the bottom of the problem and unclog that throne.
Often a blocked toilet will be caused by the following:
- Too much toilet paper
- Unflushable wet wipes or sanitary products
- Tree roots further down the sewer pipeline
- Damaged or broken pipes
- Objects like toys which should not be flushed
When you are faced with a toilet that's blocked it's good to remember what you see in the toilet bowl is just the tip of the iceberg. Repeatedly flushing to try and force the blockage down can just lead to flooding and a nasty mess.
And while the actual clearout is unpleasant, Jim's professional plumbers are not troubled by a bit of mess.
Our aim is to get things flowing again as quickly as possible and ensure the blockage does not reoccur. All of our solutions are long term so you won't be staring at another clogged toilet a few days or weeks later.
How to Fix a Clogged Toilet?
Forget boiling water, a coat hanger or store bought chemicals. The best way to fix a blocked toilet is with a thorough investigation. You want to be sure of what the offending material is, and that it is truly gone.
Jim's Plumbing can perform a CCTV drain inspection if necessary, so we know exactly what we're dealing with. There's a great chance that your clog will be further down the pipeline, where a coat hanger won't reach and a plunger can't have an impact. And remember, even if you clear a blockage, most likely it will just be flushed back down the drain and could get stuck further down the line. Future problems will definitely pop up.
But with the help of our inspection, we can bring in the big guns like an electric drain cleaning machine or high powered hydro jet. Our licensed plumbers have over 15 years of company experience to call upon when they bring out the heavy duty equipment. It all helps you, the customer, to enjoy a free flowing toilet.
Blocked Toilet Plumber
Never underestimate the benefit of a qualified blocked toilet plumber. Sure, there are some aspects of toilet plumbing that can be completed yourself, but it's a pretty important part of your plumbing to get right!
There may be local guidelines or regulations surrounding what work you can do yourself. So when in doubt, call Jim's Plumbing. Our plumbers are fully licensed and have over 15 years' company experience.

Interest Free Toilet Services
The stress of having clogged the toilet doesn't need to be made worse by worrying about paying for it straight away. You obviously have to unblock the toilet drain, but you might be waiting on your next pay.
Don’t worry, we get it. Jim's Plumbing can help you out on the financial front. It’s as simple as asking you plumber on site about our $0 deposit, interest free payment plans** that help spread the payments across weekly or fortnightly instalments, rather than one big sum upfront.
These payment plans are flexible and popular. The application process is simple, with most of our customers gaining approval within minutes. As soon as approval is granted, work can begin straight away.
Don’t put off clearing your blocked toilet. For any information regarding these plans, or to book one of our expert plumbers, call the team at Jim’s Plumbing today.
