Sooner or later as a homeowner you will face certain problems with your toilet. However, it is quite possible to avoid them if you keep in mind that your toilet is not a garbage disposal and never flush anything except for the toilet paper down your toilet drain. Paper towels, diapers and rags are not intended to break down in water and can clog your pipes causing stoppages.
In case if you suspect a leak from your toilet tank to your toilet bowl, try putting a few drops of food coloring into the toilet tank and wait for 30 minutes. Check if any of the colored water made its way into the bowl, and if it did, call Norwalk Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning – the reputable full-scale plumbing contractor – ASAP! That slow leak can literally double the cost of your water bills over time!
You can also improve your toilet’s performance with the following tips:
