Be Wary, But Don't Worry About Potential Toilet Issues

Be Wary, But Don't Worry About Potential Toilet Issues | Residential, Commercial, Industrial Plumbing Services

I always say don’t fret, quite yet, which means be prepared for the unexpected but don’t stress out over it. At Benicia Plumbing, we are happy to share these tips and tricks with you to keep your toilet healthy and in optimum working condition. 

Provide an Alternate Garbage Disposal:
Clogs will happen simply because there is no other option for disposal in the bathroom, leaving the occupant no other choice but to discard something in the toilet. However, you should instead place a small trash can near each toilet in the home. This is an economical way of preventing clogged toilets that could be the result of something getting flushed down the toilet that shouldn’t have been even near it in the first place.

Keep Surfaces Clear:
Many clogged toilets also result from accidents where an object is knocked into the toilet accidentally. This often happens when nearby counters are filled with small objects like bottles and cosmetics. Keeping these areas clear of small items will lessen the chances of you having to make an unnecessary call for plumbing repairs. 

Educate Family Members:
Children and adults alike need to know what absolutely shouldn’t be thrown down the drain. You should inform your family these objects should stay far away from your toilet: paper products (cleaning wipes, feminine hygiene products, cotton balls), household waste products (kitty litter, human or pet hair, grease, oil), or other materials (toys, medications, articles of clothing).

Be Nice/Flush Twice:
If waste is not removed after the first flush, you should flush again. However, if these multiple flushes are becoming incredibly common, then you need to consider that there may be a serious problem with the toilet itself. Not to mention, multiple flushes are also a waste of water. If you want to avoid higher spending on water bills and further damage to your plumbing system, you should instead contact a licensed plumber to determine what service will be needed to fix the problem. 

Learn to Plunge:
You probably have a plunger in your home but do you know how to do it properly? If not, please follow these steps: Insert the plunger into the toilet bowl, position the plunger over the drainage hole and plunge vigorously until the water levels in the toilet bowl go down, and this will then let you know the clog has been successfully removed.
