Clogged Toilet – Need Plumbing Services In Omaha, NE
A dripping faucet may be a nuisance, but it’s nothing compared to the mess of a clogged toilet. If flushing the toilet only swirls the water around, or worse, sends the water over the top of the rim and onto the bathroom floor, and plunging doesn’t help, you’ll need the assistance of a plumber, such as Jeff Mumm Plumbing Omaha NE. The plumber will have the tools necessary to determine what the problem is and clear out any clog you may have to cause your toilet to overflow. If the clog somewhere between the toilet and the sewer or septic line, the plumber will send an auger, or snake, down the drain to determine where the obstruction is located. Once he finds it, he may either pull it out or push it through to allow the water to flow freely again.
