Toilet Overflow in Twin Falls?
Toilet Trouble in Twin Falls?
According to the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS) faulty supply lines, toilet flanges, fill valve assemblies, or toilet backups and overflows were attributed to 78 percent of water damage from toilets. SERVPRO® of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties responds to water damage emergencies often and we know that our fast response time minimizes further water damage in many instances. Here are some loss prevention and maintenance tips from the IBHS:
- Be patient after you flush and wait for the valve to completely finish refilling the tank and bowl. If an overflow looks imminent, lift off the tank cover and lift the float to shut off water flow to the tank, and then turn off the supply valve.
- Twice a year, inspect a toilet’s components, such as the fill, supply, and flush valves, and the supply line. Make sure you can turn off the supply. If you have older screw-type valves that are hard to turn or start leaking, consider replacing them with simpler ball valves that are easy to shut off quickly.
