When your trusty toilet lets you down, you don’t always want to wait (or pay) for having a plumber come out and fix it, and while it certainly isn’t glamorous it’s more than likely worth having a go at fixing it yourself if it’s just clogged.

While a few flushes and a poke with the toilet brush is often enough to get things moving again, when it isn’t enough we have some great suggestions on how you can tackle the problem easily with a few different methods depending on the tools you have at hand.

So unless you’re fairly sure your toilet is broken then we recommend giving these methods a try, but a quick word of warning, don’t try flushing too much if it’s still blocked as there is only one place for the water to go, and that’s all over your bathroom floor.
