What should I do if my toilet starts overflowing?

Toilet clogs are a common bathroom plumbing issue - and may require immediate action to avoid an overflow. If your toilet starts to overflow right after you flush it, remove the lid to the back of the toilet and press down on the rubber flapper valve until the tank stops filling up. When the rubber flapper is secure, raise the float arm and hold both items in place until the water level returns to normal.

What should I do if my sink is clogged?

A severe sink clog will require the help of an emergency plumber; however, some clogs can be fixed with a simple, DIY unclogging method such as using a drain cleaner, pouring boiling water down the drain or using a clean plunger to dislodge the clog. If the clog is bad enough, you may need professional drain clearing to fix the issue.

What should I do if I don’t have any hot water?

If you don’t have any hot water in your house, the first thing you should check is the pilot light under your water heater. Additionally, make sure the power source to the water heater is connected and that the water heater thermostat is set to a proper warmth. (If it’s been accidentally pushed to a cold setting, you won’t have any hot water!)

What should I do if my washing machine starts leaking?

If your washing machine is leaking from the bottom, you may be able to identify the source of the problem by (carefully!) unplugging the machine from the power outlet, sliding it away from the wall about 12 inches, and making sure the water hoses are connected to the back of the machine and the wall properly.

If either hose is loose, you may be able to fix the problem by tightening the hose where it connects to the wall or where it connects to the washing machine. If this doesn’t work, you may need the help of a professional plumber to diagnose your leak.

As with any leak, be sure to mop up any excess water to avoid mold/mildew, damage to your floor, etc.

What should I do if I have a pipe break in my house?

First, you’ll need to turn off your water main to fully disconnect the water supply from your house. Your water main may be found in a crawl space or near your water heater. If the shut-off isn’t somewhere inside your house, it will probably be near the street under a metal lid. If you know where the leak is coming from, mop up the water quickly to avoid mold or mildew accumulation.
