What to do when your toilet overflows

First things first, remain calm and turn of the water leading to the toilet. If the stoppage is a result of too much paper, then a plunger should do the trick. If the clog is in the sewer, taking the cap off of the sewer clean out should prevent overflow until we come out and take care of the rest. Remember this is not a garbage chute, even if it says disposable it doesn't mean it should be flushed. Keep it strictly to the essentials, and try to be conservative with the toilet paper.

There are several devices out there that can be used to prevent contamination of potable water due to backflow, all of which can be installed by the professionals at My Favorite Plumber.
