Professional Plumbing Solutions In College Station

After flushing your toilet a couple of times, you realize that it won’t drain. You’ve tried unclogging it to no avail. This can leave you scratching your head wondering what to do next.

Fortunately, our team of experts at Barker’s Heating & Cooling can help you troubleshoot your toilet to get it up and working again. Let’s look into a few of them to see if they can resolve your toilet plumbing issues so that it drains as normal.

Why Won’t My Toilet Drain?

As you’ve figured, the reason your toilet won’t drain is likely due to a clog — a stubborn one! This can be due to a buildup of toilet paper, unflushable items getting lodged in your pipes or broken or damaged plumbing.

You’ve tried using a toilet plunger to fix your clogged toilet, but it’s not doing the trick like it normally does! If your toilet won’t unclog after a basic plumbing procedure, there are alternate options you can try to get your pipes running as usual.

How To Fix A Toilet That Won’t Drain

It’s important to fix your disobedient potty as soon as possible. Letting it sit too long or flushing over and over won’t do it any good and could make the problem worse. Try some of these alternative steps and strategies to see if it does the trick to get your toilet draining again.

Contact A Plumbing Professional

  • Pour one cup of white vinegar and one cup of baking soda in your toilet, let sit, then flush

What Our Customers Are Saying

Very Professional

Chandler did an excellent job checking out our heat pump. He was very professional, communicated well, was responsive to our questions and I was very happy with everything he did.

Steve M.

Honest and Trustworthy

Our AC went out during a late summer heatwave. Called Barkers and Victor worked very hard to get the outside unit up and running. Two hours later we conceded to the death of a 29 yo unit. Victor notified the office the next morning, and within 24 hours we had a complete new system installed, and the house cooled by the time I got home from work. Highly recommend. Honest and trustworthy.

Susan H.

Very Impressed

We were impressed by this company from the first phone call. Reed was an exceptional young man; very personable and professional. The installation team of Mike, John and Cody did an excellent job. Barker’s is a business with high standards and we are very satisfied with everything about them. So glad we found this company!
