Tips for Preventing Clogged Toilet Emergencies

Is a clogged toilet an emergency? Maybe not, but if you’ve got sewage flooding into your bathroom, you’re going to want to call us straight away. Here’s how you can keep the pipes clear:

  • Use less toilet paper
  • Don’t flush anything except toilet paper (no feminine hygiene products, diapers, wipes, etc.)
  • Install child safety locks on toilets to keep kids from flushing weird stuff
  • Educate everyone in your household about how the plumbing works

Water Heater Emergencies (And Not Quite Emergencies)

Not having hot water is less than ideal — especially during chilly Pacific Northwest winters — but is it an emergency? Well, there are a few reasons why your hot water may suddenly vanish: thermostat issues, electrical problems, or physical damage to the hot water heater unit itself. If you can actually see water leaking from your water heater, you should call in the pros (Wolcott pros, that is) right away. The longer you wait to call us, the longer you’re going to be taking ice cold showers.
