Stress of the Toilet Overflow

Watching the water level rise in your toilet bowl after you flush can put you in an instant state of panic. It’s important to know why toilet overflows occur, and what you can do to stop them from happening.

Your first step should be to turn off the water valve to the toilet, this is right behind the toilet, turn the knob to the right to stop water going to the toilet tank.

If the toilet overflows happen right after a flush, this usually indicates that there is a blockage in the toilet itself, and this can be remedied with a few plunges in the offending toilet. If that doesn’t work, stop, and call a plumber to come and fix the issue for you.

If your toilet is overflowing and you haven’t flushed…call a plumber, this could be a clog in your drain pipe.
