Toilet Clogs

Few things in the bathroom can inspire fear, like a toilet clog. But, in reality, no one wants to deal with a toilet that’s been clogged. There’s nothing fun about it, but it’s one of those things in life that has to be handled.
Be sure that you have the right plunger for the job. Accordion plungers are the best ones for handling toilet clogs. The next best are plungers with a flange on the bottom that fits into the toilet to create a seal. Many people have plungers with only the soft open cup, and these are designed to be used on sink clogs rather than toilets.
An occasional toilet clog is often not a serious problem and can be handled with your plunger. However, if your toilet clogs up on a more regular basis, that’s a sign that there is a buildup of debris, such as hair, toilet paper, or other materials that don’t belong in your toilet. This buildup needs to be removed, or you’ll continue to have issues with clogging.

Toilet Leaks

Ever opened your water bill and got shocked by the cost? How could you have used so much more water than the months previously? The culprit could be a leaky toilet. Here are some signs that your toilet is leaking:

  • You notice water around the base of your toilet.
  • It takes a long time to fill up after flushing.
  • Your toilet makes noise when it’s not in use.
  • You have to move the handle around to get the water to stop filling.

You can test your toilet for leaks yourself using food coloring. First, you’ll want to put a few drops of food coloring into the bowl. Wait a short time and look to see if you notice the colored water outside of your toilet. You’ll also want to test the tank’s seal. You can add some food coloring to the top of the tank and see if the colored water stays in the tank or if it leaks into the bowl or elsewhere.

If a toilet leak is the culprit, you’ll want to repair or replace your toilet as not only does a leak cost you more money on your water bill, but it could also cost you when it comes to water damage.

Old and Inefficient Toilets

You may not realize it, but there’s a good chance that your older toilet may be working as it should, but it could be wasting more water than a newer toilet. This is because newer toilets are designed to accomplish the same flushing power with less water being used. Some toilets even allow you to flush based on the type of waste being flushed, liquid versus solid, to help save on water. A new toilet is an excellent investment in helping to do your part when it comes to saving water while also cutting down on your water bill.
