How Can I Keep My Toilet From Getting Clogged?
Toilets are designed to handle small amounts of toilet paper and waste at a time. Trying to flush down more than the fixture can handle will only result in clogs. Some items, like toys, apple cores, plastic and other small objects will become hung up in the bends of the pipes and cause an ongoing problem with clogs. While the plumber can usually use a snake to remove clogs, some clogs will require removing the toilet from the floor to find what’s causing the blockage. Teach the children to protect the lines by only putting appropriate items in the commode.
What are Some Water Heater Problems?
Water heaters reliably heat the water and ensure that you can enjoy a hot shower when you want one. However, the heaters will eventually fail as they age. Watch for signs of water heater problems and call for service before the heater fails completely and leaves you with no hot water. Warning signs include water temperatures that are dropping despite the heater being on higher settings, and heaters that are producing lower levels of hot water. You may also notice brown water when you first turn on the tap, or your heater might start making strange noises. If you see any of these problems, call for service immediately to ensure that you have hot water when you want it.
What is a Plumbing Emergency?
The definition of a plumbing emergency varies from one person to the next. If you have multiple bathrooms in the home, then you don’t have to call for emergency service if one is clogged. You can call for service during regular business hours and have the family use the other restrooms while you’re waiting. The garbage disposal breaking can be catastrophic for some families, but a family that’s in the habit of putting leftovers in the trash won’t be in as much of a rush to have it repaired.
Whether it’s an emergency or not depends on how it’s impacting your family. If you don’t feel that you can wait for regular business hours to have the clog addressed or your hot water heater looked at, then you should call for emergency service.
