TIPS JUST FOR YOU
What should you do if your toilet is about to overflow? Or What should you do if your ceiling is wet or dripping?
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOUR TOILET IS ABOUT TO OVERFLOW?
Lift the tank lid and push the flapper down. Then, shut the water supply to the toilet off – this is a valve near the floor on the left side. Turn it clockwise to turn off until it stops. The water level should eventually lower on its own. You can try plunging it once the water level is lower, but if it is plugged solid, you’ll likely need a plumber to auger it out.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOUR CEILING IS WET OR DRIPPING?
First, try to determine which fixture is causing the dripping. If it is a constant drip, it is likely a supply water line. If it is an intermittent drip, it is probably a drain. If it is a steady drip, shut your main water lines off. If it is intermittent, limit the use of the fixtures above.
