How do I unclog a toilet?
A clogged toilet can be a pain, and it’s essential to understand how to remove the blockage in a fast and efficient manner. Here are a few basic tips:
- A plunger should always be kept in any bathroom
- Position your plunger to make a seal with the drain opening and start with soft plunges at first. Then, use more vigorous motions to loosen the clog and push it through
- Note: it may take some time to fully force down the blockage, but alternating between steady strokes and vigorous ones will oftentimes create enough pressure to get the job done
Minor issues such as faucet leaks can wait, right?
Fixing a leaking faucet should be done as soon as possible, no matter how minor the issue may seem. Delaying a repair can turn into a more serious situation down the road and end up costing more money and damages to your home. Leaking faucets can cost you a lot on your water bill. Plus, small leaks can turn into larger ones and cause flooding in your home.
How do I test if my toilet is leaking?
Identifying if a toilet is leaking should be done as soon as you suspect a leak in the interest of saving water and money. There are simple steps you can take to check for a toilet leak.
- Open the toilet tank, drop a dye tablet or food coloring in it and wait for 15 to 20 minutes. When you return, look in the toilet bowl (not the tank. If you see colored water, you have a leak.
- Make sure you water level isn’t above the overflow pipe in the tank. If it is, then you may have a problem with your fill valve.
- If you see water trickling down the inside of the toilet bowl when it hasn’t been flushed, this is a sign of a leak
- If your unused toilet is making lots of noise (a running noise), then you definitely have a leak. If you can jiggle the handle and make the running stop, then you probably need to adjust the flapper valve or the chain connecting the flush handle to the flapper valve.
- Before you go to bed, shut of the water to the toilet in question. In the morning, check the water level in the tank. If there is only an inch of water left at the bottom, then one or more parts of your tank is bad and is allowing the leak.
