What to Do if Your Toilet Is Leaking or Overflowing

When it comes to toilet plumbing problems in the home, it doesn’t get any worse than the occasional clog. Even a minor crack such as something in the bowl or seal can cause massive water damage over a long enough period of time. If you do discover a major problem with your toilet, like if it is cracked or overflowing, read on to find out what you should do.

Turn Off the Water

The first thing you need to do is to shut off the water. However as far as toilet emergencies go, you don’t necessarily need to turn off water to the entire house, so locate the valve for the bathroom. The shut off valve should be either on the wall behind the toilet or around the base. If you can’t find any valve for the bathroom, you may then have to shut off water to the entire house.

Clear the Area

Even a small amount of water can damage furniture and other objects around your house beyond repair. It’s best to clear the area to limit the damage as much as possible as this will also help your plumber to reach the problem more easily when he or she shows up to fix it.

Mop Up

It might be the case where you may not be able to solve the problem on your own, however at least you can clean up the water puddles around the surrounding area. Once you have made sure that no new water can spill out, mop up what you can and wait for your plumber to arrive.
