A Clogged Toilet

The best solution is to use a toilet, not a sink plunger. What’s the difference you might ask? Well a toilet plunger has a flange (which gives it added power) inside, and it fits the shape of the toilet bowl much more accurately.

A Blocked Sink

Food is the main culprit of your blocked drains, and the best fix is to remove whatever is blocking the drain. Possible ways of solving this can be using a coat hanger or a drain auger, which are especially helpful if the blockage is too far down for you to reach with a finger.

A Leaking Sink or Faucet

You will have to decide if you have a compression, cartridge, disc-type or ball faucet. Then realistically the leaky parts should be replaced by a trusted plumber.

A Leaking Toilet Seal

If you leave this leak unchecked, it can cause nasty bacteria to develop which can create a health risk. If you tighten the base bolts of your toilet it can ensure the base is secure, however don’t do it too quickly as you can easily crack the base and cause a bigger problem!

Leaking Toilet Tank Flush Valve

The flusher valve on your toilet is the hearth of the machinery inside it. When it breaks, it needs to be replaced immediately for your toilet to work. Often you won’t have a spare lying around, so best to call your plumber!
