How to troubleshoot a backed-up toilet

Backed-up toilets are a fairly common problem in many homes. If flush water rises to the rim and then drains slowly, the toilet trap or drain is definetly blocked. Unblocking it is easy, and only needs using use a plunger first, then a snake.
So:

  • 1st Pull a section of the snake out of the drum.
  • Then Tighten the retaining nut on top of the snake body.
  • Rotate the drum of the snake so it burrows into the waste system to dislodge the blockage.

The latter burrows into the blockage and loosens it up, getting ridd of blockage and making it easier to flush the toilet again.
