If your toilet is malfunctioning, you need to schedule a prompt repair. Knowing the cause of the malfunction is also important so you don't repeat the problem.
1. Flushing the Wrong Things
A clogged toilet must be repaired, but you will then need to take steps to avoid subsequent clogs. The toilet is not a garbage can. Nothing should go down the toilet other than human waste and toilet paper. Wet wipes, diapers, hygiene products, and floss must all go in the garbage, even if the packaging declares that these items are flushable.
