Sometimes we, as humans, tend to panic when things don’t go as we planned for them to. We make mistakes and our mistakes can costs us money. For example, if your treat your garbage disposal as a trash compactor, you can cause damage to your plumbing pipes and to the blade of the garbage disposal. Not all garbage belongs in the disposal. Professional plumbers have had to go to residential homes and remove watermelon rinds, potato peels, and pumpkin carvings from the blades of garbage disposals. Those kinds of foods are too chunking and they can clog up the kitchen sinks as well. Many people are uneducated and when their garbage disposals stop working because of some act they committed and didn’t know was harmful to their disposals, they immediately call a plumber.
Here is another problem West Palm Beach residents may have experienced that led them to call a plumber. In the shower, people have a lot of supplies they use. There is the soap, the shower gel, the shampoo, the conditioner, the face wash, and maybe some loofahs or small towels. Shampoo racks are used to help keep in place some of those necessary bath items. It is usually hung over a showerhead. It is a convenient supply to have. However, there should never be too much weight on those racks. If the rack is too heavy with items, there is a high possibility of the rank snapping the showerhead right off at the threads. Once that showerhead snaps off, people panic and they grab a phone to call a plumber. Why? That is because they have a broken shower. If it is used, water will be plunging out like a river. It will be a total mess. No one wants that.
Again, we make mistakes sometimes. Even little kids make mistakes. Have you ever heard other parents talk about how their son or daughter tried to flush their small toy down the toilet? It happens. The kids are young and they don’t know any better. What happens is that if the toy or other small item gets stuck in the trap, the toilet doesn’t flush correctly. Trying to plunge it out can make the problem worse by pushing it into the waste line. When this particular situation occurs, be advised and call a plumber as soon as possible. The only way this can get resolved is by removing the toilet completely and retrieving the small toy or item.
