A blockage is an unpleasant emergency and one that can be made worse if you do not know what to do. The first point to note is that a blocked toilet may be blocked before you are fully aware of this.
If you see that the water level in the bowl is higher than normal, or that the water takes a considerable time to flow away you should follow the following tips to avoid a major flood.
Try to remove water from the bowl to a normal level. Take a household mop and fully wet and place down the toilet bowl. Try to get the mop head at the bottom of the bend and move in and up and down motion to try and generate pressure. This is often enough to unblock many blockages.
