What to Do With Your Leaky Toilet
A leaky toilet is one common problem that plumbers address when called to a home or business. Other common plumbing problems are faucet leaks, clogged drains, and broken pipes. You can trust that Roto-Rooter will fix it quickly and correctly. They are only a phone call away and they will respond any time of the day or night. Here are a few tips on how you might be able to address some common household plumbing problems.
- Clogged Drains. This is the most common plumbing issue. Interestingly enough, the busiest time of the year for plumbers dealing with drain problems is around the holiday season. Items get flushed into the drains or are run through the garbage disposer that clog the pipes. As a rule of thumb, only put food in the disposer that is rinsed off of dishes before going in the dishwasher. Specific items to avoid putting into the disposer are egg shells, potato peels and most other rinds and peels that come from fruits and vegetables.
- Toilet Clogs. Always keep a toilet plunger next to the toilet. Even if you have a new toilet and you are sure there will never be any problems, it is safe to keep one there for emergencies. If you suspect there is a toy or other solid object that has found its way into your toilet trap, you should call a professional plumber as soon as possible. The flooding from a leaky toilet could cause a problem in your bathroom.
