Toilet Installation & Replacement

Installing & Replacing Toilets - Macomb County MI- Stadler PlumbingIf the time has come to remodel your bathroom, then you are likely more than ready to get the process started. Picking out new décor and replacing various items can be fun, but knowing when to hire a plumber and when you can tackle the job yourself is not always easy to determine.

Doing The Job Right

If you are taking the time to remodel, you will want to ensure that everything is done just as you want it, so that you can relax in the bathroom of your dreams. A major component of every bathroom is the toilet. This piece can be the defining factor when it comes to other decorating decisions, so picking out the right style and model is important.

With the wide array of bathroom products now available, picking out your new toilet can prove to be time-consuming and costly. This means that the installation process needs to be precise and well thought out, so are you sure to be left satisfied. For these reasons, hiring out may be your best option when it comes to replacing your old toilet. If you attempt it yourself and mess up a few steps, you may be leaving your bathroom with noticeable mistakes, making the entire room look a bit sloppy.

Saving Money Over Time

Other issues with doing it yourself involve extra costs. While tackling projects without hired help may seem like the cheapest option, it often winds up costing more once you purchase the various tools and parts that are needed along the way. On top of this, if you slip up or install something incorrectly, this means more time and money spent on repairs that could have been avoided.

The worst case scenario in a do-it-yourself situation is messing up your plumbing to the point where an expert has to be called in anyway. Save yourself stress by simply hiring out help in the first place. Someone who is trained and certified will be well-versed on the procedures involved when installing new products, as well as the various codes and regulations that need to be followed. Keep it safe and avoid extra hassle by having a professional do things right the first time around.

Do’s & Don’ts: Unclogging A Toilet

Properly Unclogging Toilets - Macomb County MI - Stadler PlumbingEvery homeowner finds themselves facing a clogged toilet from time to time. While this is never a fun problem to have, it is not necessarily something you would need to call a plumber for. You can unclog a toilet on your own by following some simple hacks. Check out some do’s and don’ts below!

Do

  • Do Start Simple: When first addressing a clog, start out with the most classic approach – plunging. A plunger is designed to work specifically for toilets and most clogs will come out if you utilize your plunger correctly. If you are not seeing results, stay patient, take a break, and try again in five or ten minutes. If you still make no progress, try alternative methods.
  • Do Try A Snake: A drain snake is a great tool to use for breaking up clogs and getting your toilet back to its normal state. It is designed to dig into the clog, forcing it into smaller pieces and giving your system the chance to drain out all of that debris. Be patient and careful as you twist and wind the snake throughout your drain as to not cause any further damage or plumbing issues.
  • Do Keep The Seat Down: When you are not directly addressing the clog, keep the toilet seat down to avoid anything potentially falling in and causing an even bigger blockage. This especially goes for homes with pets or kids. Dogs and small children will surely be curious what all the fuss in the bathroom is about and you will greatly reduce the chances of a huge mess if everything is sealed off.

Don’t

  • Don’t Be Reckless: Make a proper assessment of your situation and the severity of your clog before trying out any hasty fixes. Rushing into something could result in an even bigger mess. For example, a baking soda and vinegar combination often works well to break down a clog, but using too much of it too quickly could result in your toilet bubbling over.
  • Don’t Use Chemicals: Many companies promote powerful chemicals that claim to quickly force out any clog. The truth is that many do not work as effectively as they claim. They may eventually wear down a clog, but it will take some time. It is not worth the cost involved, not to mention the excess exposure to harsh toxins.
  • Don’t Refuse Help: If all else fails, call in a plumber for assistance. If you have tried every trick in the book and your clog still will not budge, then you might be facing a bigger issue than you realize. If you notice any water backing up into the shower drain or the sink then this is a sign of bigger problems, as well, meaning it is time to get a professional’s help.
