Toilet isn’t flushing/won't stop running
Not being able to make your waste disappear can be traumatic, but usually the solution is simple. The flush handle/chain/flapper valve trio located under the tank cover (or that heavy lid thingy), are the most likely culprits. Some combination of a loose chain, disconnection of the chain from the handle or flapper valve (the part that looks kinda like the Starship Enterprise), or replacing broken parts usually solves your flushing troubles. Often, it’s as simple as reconnecting parts or making sure the flapper is shutting completely (seriously guys, this is probably the easiest one on this list). You can replace all, or some, of these components faster than you can polish off a can of your favorite under-the-radar toasted lager. Bring your old parts to the hardware store and someone will show you the way.
We’ve all seen it. The impending doom of toilet water rising like molten lava ascending to the vent of a volcano, but then it stops. You have survived the immediate catastrophe of overflowing stank and debris, but how do you retake control of your commode? Usually all you need is your plunger. You will first need a plunger, of course, but once you get past this barrier, the plunger is one of the more straightforward tools. Bayron uses a drain snake less than 5% of the time tenants call about clogs, so give that plunger a whirl. Not only will you conquer the vile fluids of the deep, but it can also be good cardio.
