The average plumber makes at least one hundred dollars per hour. That's great for them, but not for us, especially if we can do the same work they do without having to spend a single penny!
I live in an old house, and renovations are just not an option for me. Being savvy is the best thing we can do until our toilets have no choice but to be replaced.
Here's how you fix all your common toilet troubles. The best part is for most of them you don't need to leave your house to buy anything new!
1. Clean the bowl without a brush
It comes as no surprise that your toilet bowl is full of stains. It's where we do our business, so we want to make sure it stays clean.
Kool-Aid is perfect to remove the stains without using harmful chemicals that can get into your respiratory tract. Pour the powder inside the bowl and let it soak overnight before you flush in the morning.
2. Weak flush
You can waste a lot of water by flushing over and over again, but luckily the fix is simple.
All you need to do is find the float in the toilet tank, which is either a black rubber ball or a black piece on a long rod, and adjust it higher to allow more water to fill the tank.
3. Clean clogged jets
Those pinkish lines that appear in your toilet bowl are a sign that the jets responsible for flushing and rinsing the bowl are clogged. This happens to everybody as minerals and debris build up over time.
If the discolored lines are prominent and a toilet brush can't fix the problem, you may need to take drastic action. The best thing you can do is to duct tape the jets, and pour vinegar in the tank to soak overnight.
