In the life of a plumbing and drain cleaning business we see pictures like the above almost on a daily basis. When this happens outside a property it becomes less of an emergency but is still crucial to repair in a timely manner. But when a valve breaks like this inside a house you can expect a flood of you aren’t home or don’t notice this. Many times it happens when at work or when on vacation. The problem is you never know when the next pipe may break.

Changing Toilets

Toilets have changed gallon they flush in the last several years. Older toilet are better for not getting clogged due to more water flushing. Less water flushing simply equals more chance of clogged a toilet. Low flow toilets don’t just clog up your toilet more but it also can clog branch drain lines and sanitary main sewer lines. The reason is simply, they flush less water.

What can you do to make sure your low flow toilet doesn’t clog as often. Number one you might have to flush a couple times while in the bathroom. Number two, use less toilet paper, and lastly use thinner toilet paper. Clients who own cabins and are on septic tanks use septic safe toilet paper. I’ve been in lots of cabins that also use low flow toilets. If you are one that ends up clogging your toilet often and you find yourself plunging time after time maybe consider buying and investing in a power flush toilet. The toilet flushes less water but uses power behind it and give it a boost.
