Keeping Your Toilet in Tip-Top Shape

Whether you recently upgraded your porcelain throne or your home has an older toilet, every homeowner should be educated on properly caring for their home’s toilets.

Clogs and leaks can be frustrating to deal with, especially if the issue was due to a lack of maintenance and care. To help your toilet perform at maximum efficiency and serve your plumbing needs for years to come, keep on reading!

Watch What You Flush

Your toilet was not designed to be used as a garbage can, and it is only prepared to manage water, toilet paper, and waste. Any other items should be thrown in a bathroom wastebasket or home trash can. Even objects such as “flushable” wipes, feminine products, and paper towels should be thrown in the trash to avoid a nasty clog.

Regular Cleanings

It’s no surprise that your toilet should be cleaned regularly to ensure a sanitary and efficient commode. Use a high-quality toilet bowl cleaner and a bathroom-friendly cleaning solution for the toilet exterior, and you’ll have a sparkling porcelain throne.

Pro tip: Don’t forget to clean inside the toilet tank for a spotless toilet, inside and out!

Check for Leaks

No one likes a leaky toilet! Not only can they be a nuisance, but they can also drive up your monthly water bill. Inspect for wet areas on and around the commode and also around the connecting water pipe. If you find a leak, call Nuckols Plumbing, Heating & Cooling for expert assistance!
