Calls for toilet repairs pick up during the holiday season because it can be embarrassing when you have a house full of friends and family and the toilet won’t flush.
EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ (PRWEB) October 28, 2014
October is National Toilet Tank Repair Month and Gold Medal Service, a heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical and waterproofing home service business that serves the New Jersey area, is reminding homeowners to get tanks checked before the holiday season.
“Calls for toilet repairs pick up during the holiday season because it can be embarrassing when you have a house full of friends and family and the toilet won’t flush,” said Mike Agugliaro, co-owner of Gold Medal Service.
Homeowners and landlords should inspect toilets for leaks around the base, flapper and hoses, says Agugliaro.
Leaks can cause homeowners to lose more than 10,000 gallons of water each year, and a running toilet could waste up to 200 gallons per day. Most leaks require a quick and inexpensive fix than can save homeowners hundreds of dollars, with just a simple part replacement. Newer toilets are much more efficient and, depending on the model, can save up to 16,000 gallons of water per year, which will significantly lower water bills.
“Not repairing a leak could cause devastating damage to the infrastructure of your home,” said Agugliaro. “Scheduling a service expert to come inspect for leaks ensures that nothing will be missed that could cause damage, and it decreases the probability of a costly mess that could interrupt holiday plans with friends and family.”
