Toilet Maintenance Tips

Toilet Maintenance Tips

To help your toilet perform better and last longer, follow these five simple toilet maintenance tips:

Don’t use your toilet as a garbage can. Avoid flushing paper towels, feminine products, cleaning wipes, or anything other than toilet paper.

Inspect your toilet for leaks. Look for wet areas on and around the toilet, as well as on the water line that connects the toilet to the wall. If you notice any leaks, call a plumber as soon as possible. Leaks can hike up your water bill and damage your home.

Test for leaks with food coloring. Add six or seven drops of food coloring to your tank and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then check your toilet bowl and see if the water has changed color. If it has, you’ve got a leak. Call a plumber right away!

Check the water shut-off valve. This is the knob attached to the wall or floor that shuts off the water supply to your toilet. Just turn the knob to make sure it is still turnable. If it is resistant or won’t budge, it may be faulty and in need of professional maintenance.

Make sure the fill valve is working properly. Lift the lid to your tank and flush the toilet. Make sure that the after the tank has refilled, the fill valve completely stops dispensing water.
