Don’t let plumbing problems spoil your Super Bowl party next month! Although you might think that a toilet or drain can withstand many different materials, they are actually incredibly sensitive. In fact, flushing or draining the wrong materials can create big problems for you and the environment. Check out our list of best practices when it comes to toilets and drains:
Simply speaking, the general rule of thumb is that you shouldn’t flush anything but waste and toilet paper. Flushing any other materials can lead to annoying backups and even cracks and leaks.
If your toilet continually runs or has a slow flush after you’ve cleared a backup, it could mean you have a leak that could be wasting a considerable amount of water. Call Catons and we’ll have someone out to inspect in no time.
Generally speaking, do not allow any organic or non-organic material down your sink drains. To avoid annoying clogs and slow drains you might consider using a mesh sink strainer over your drain to catch hair, food, chemicals or any other materials that should be kept out of drains. Try these simple DIY steps for clearing a blocked drain. Some drain clogs can only be cleared by a professional. If you’re still experiencing issues, call Catons or schedule online to have your drains and toilets inspected and cleared before the big game!
