Tackle Toilet Problems before Game Time

How to prevent super-sized plumbing issues from sacking your game day plans.

Feb 03, 2016, 10:00 ET from Benjamin Franklin Plumbing

SARASOTA, Fla., Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunday is a big day for football, eating, parties and… toilets. Here are tips, from the trusted professionals at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® to make sure you don't get stuck this weekend:

  • Your Equipment
    A worn or old toilet flapper can create problems in the bathroom and make it tough to flush. Replacing the flapper is a quick and easy thing to do. It can also help things flow smoothly during times of heavy usage, like half-time.
  • Defend your Disposal
    Potato skins and certain vegetables can be tough on the kitchen disposal. Throw away what you can in the trash. When using your disposal, use plenty of water to help move scraps down the drain.
  • Pass the Plunger
    Plungers are not just for toilets. You can keep a clean plunger under the kitchen sink to help with clogs or slow moving drains. To use a plunger properly: pull the flange out from the bottom and use a quick pulsing motion to help remove a clog.
  • Game Plan
    Don't wait for a problem to surface and then call a plumber. A plumbing inspection, done by a trusted professional, can identify potential trouble areas before you have a house full of guests and a major plumbing emergency.
