Clearing Toilet Clogs with Closet Augers

If your toilet is clogged and you need professional assistance please feel free to give me a call.

Today, we are talking about closet augers.

When to use a closet auger

If your toilet is clogged and a plunger isn’t helping, you may want to give the closet auger a whirl.

Keep in mind that most closet augers only reach about 21 inches. For blockages further along in the sewage line, a closet auger will not help.

What is a closet auger?


A closet auger, aka a toilet auger, is a plumbing tool that has an offset hand crank, a sleeve handle, and a special auger bit at the end.

The closet auger exists to break down clogs or retrieve rags and other obstructions.
