After which 1-2 tablespoons of liquid dish soap should be put into it and after which cold water should be run through it for a minute which will rinse off all the debris.

⦁ If there are slow moving drains, the trap should be removed and cleaned of any types of debris or even clogs. Still if the drain is slow moving, then the main line cap or plug should be checked. This will make the dirt and debris soft and they can easily be flushed out from inside the drains.

⦁ If there are huge clogs, it may require you to employ a professional to help. It may even require the entire sewer line to be replaced. This is if even the sewer jet blasting does not work.

⦁ In winters, clog hog sewer jetters are used to remove blockages which are frozen in the sewer drain lines.

⦁ One should not use the flush tank as a shelf as whatever material is stored on it has a chance of falling into the toilet bowl and clogging it.

⦁ When there are kids in the home, the toilet bowl should always be covered to prevent kids dropping toys or other things into the toilet bowl.
