Strains On Your Plumbing During Coronavirus
When it comes to your plumbing, you want what goes down to stay down. As COVID-19 has had many people at home for more hours every single day for weeks now, the plumbing industry has been inundated with calls for help.
Across the Nation, people have been scrambling to find adequate amounts of toilet paper. With shelves empty, many people have been using alternative options in the bathroom that are wreaking havoc on their plumbing. Paper towels, napkins, baby wipes, leftover restaurant napkins stored in glove compartments – anything that seems like it might do the job and be flushable, people are putting down their toilets. This is not a good idea!
If you are starting to see signs of strain on your plumbing system during this coronavirus pandemic, take heed. Pee, poo, and toilet paper are only things that you should flush down your toilet. Anything else that gets flushed down is going to cause a problem. It will be an expensive problem, too, one that many insurance companies will not cover. It is better to be proactive, finding suitable toilet paper to use, than create a financial burden with your plumbing system. Even if you cannot find your favorite brand of toilet paper, it is essential that you do not try DIY replacements. Right now, many people are sacrificing conveniences all over the country – but they are worth it.
Perhaps you have been using correct toilet paper, but your plumbing system is still under strain. This is predictable because your toilets and plumbing system is being used much more frequently than normal. If you are used to working outside of the home and having your children gone during the day, then your toilet is now being used four to five times more per day than usual. This increased usage can put a massive strain on your plumbing system because it is not used to such high use.
