Warning signs of a clogged toilet include:
- You can see the blockage: Let’s start with the most obvious. If an object(s) was accidentally dropped in a toilet, like a child’s toy, and is now preventing smooth water flow, you know a clog is imminent.
- Gurgling noises: Hearing a bubbling or gurgling noise can be a sign that a clog is creating negative air pressure somewhere in your drain.
- Water rising in the toilet bowl: One of the first indicators of a clog is the rising water line in your toilet bowl. If water is not able to flow freely into the bowl from the cistern and back out again, a clog is causing your water level to get progressively higher.
- Backed-up water in your shower or bathtub: When a major clog occurs in your toilet, it can impact other fixtures, this is especially true if a blockage has moved passed your drain and into your sewer line. Luckily, in addition to our toilet repair in San Jose, we use video camera inspections and hydro jetting to remove clogs from your sewer main.

Signs Your Toilet Has a Clog
One of the easiest ways to avoid clogged toilets is by being careful about what you flush and having a reliable San Jose plumbing professional inspect your toilets annually.
10 things to avoid flushing include:
- Tampons and pads
- Wet wipes and baby wipes—even if they advertise that they are flushable
- Food and cooking grease
- Q-Tips or cotton balls
- Paper towels
- Cat litter and animal waste
Even if you avoid flushing any of the above materials down your toilet, clogs can happen. If left unattended, small clogs can become major blockages—leading to potential overflows or even burst pipes. To avoid these frustrating side effects, our San Jose toilet repair team is sharing some signs to look out for to spot a clog early.
