Useful Plumbing Maintenance Tips For Your Toilet Bowl
The bathroom is undoubtedly one of those areas in your home that you use most frequently. It is only proper to maintain it as often as possible, to any plumbing emergency that could crop up at the wrong time. When it comes to preventing clogged toilet everything has to be kept in top shape to prevent any plumbing emergencies. Here are some easy toilet maintenance tips that you should follow, in order to avoid major plumbing emergencies.
- Take care of the flapper
Begin with your toilet tank. If the wraps of the flapper, or the rubber covering at the tank bottom is out of shape, there could be leakage of water. You can test whether there’s a leakage by pouring a few drops of food coloring into your tank and keep it as it is through the night. If you find some color in your toilet bowl the following morning, this would mean that you have a leakage issue and you have to replace the flapper. This is, fortunately, a cheap and simple fix rather than a change of toilet bowl in Singapore.
- Clean your tank
In the course of time, unless you clean your toilet tank in an appropriate way, you can find some accumulation (dust and other particles) in the tank. Water in the tank refills the bowl every time you flush. In case you have a dirty tank, the water is having a direct entry into your bowl. This can make it tough for you to maintain and clean the tank. This may even leak to the toilet bowl clogging in the future and you will have a job to unclog toilet. You need to clean your tank a minimum of one time in every two months.
- Caulk your toilet again
Usually, the wax ring seal in your toilet bowl prevents leaking of water within the toilet. If the seal starts to deteriorate, the water will be kept in by the caulk. You might not be able to know about the water leakage until later. You should re-caulk the area surrounding the toilet base to prevent water damage from the outside. If overtime, even after re-caulking the base, there is a leakage, a professional toilet drain maintenance company can help.
- Clean the toilet bowl
The toilet bowl is the toilet section that usually receives the most cleaning. It is essential, given that clogging and corrosion can be prevented with a clean bowl. You can consider making use of a mix of water, baking soda and vinegar to do the cleaning. In any case, should there be a need of professional advice, a plumbing maintenance company may be able to help you.
