Tips to Help Prevent Holiday Plumbing Embarrassments
What is the fastest way to have party guests leave your home? Announce you have a clogged toilet and see them running for the door. You might even have a family member or two try to sneak out the back door. A clogged toilet is no laughing matter!
Here’s a few tips to try to keep the unimaginable from happening to you!
Take the time to do a basic check on your toilet. Flush it. Does the tank refill in a timely manner? Does the water continue to run after the tank is full? If you think you might have any toilet issues, now is the time to do a little DIY maintenance or to call Waldman Plumbing for help.
No matter what you do, sometimes a toilet clog just can’t be avoided. To prepare for those unexpected clogs be sure to have the proper plunger on hand for guests to find. The typical orange suction cup plunger is great for use in the kitchen, but a toilet clog needs a different type of plunger to be able to work effectively. A ball-shaped or foldout-cup style is created to be more efficient in handling toilet clogs.
Holidays often mean small guests with curious hands. Be sure to remove items from the back of the tank that could accidentally fall into the toilet.
Don’t let your guests ever run out of toilet paper! We often forget that the most obvious location for a spare roll to us, might not be where they would think to look. Leave an extra out in plain sight.
