Problem: Sometimes the lift chain, which attaches the flapper to the flushing handle on the outside of the toilet, can have too much slack and make the handle unable to raise the flapper and thus flush the toilet.
Solution: To solve this problem, you need only adjust the length of the chain to shorten it so that the chain can provide pull sufficient to raise the flapper off of the flush tube and allow water to flow when the handle is pulled.

Certain types of stringy vegetables such as celery and asparagus can spin a web in the disposal housing and bring the entire mechanism to a halt. Strands from these vegetables become so wrapped around blades that they can actually pull them off the disposal unit itself.
Be careful with potato and banana peels too. They’re not as stringy as celery and asparagus, but they can be too tough for the disposal to handle with ease. Go the safe route and throw these strands and peels away. Better yet, compost these disposal no-nos.

Don’t feed the fatberg’: Huge mass blocks English sewer
LONDON (AP) — A British official says a giant “fatberg” has been found blocking a sewer in southwestern England: a mass of hardened fat, oil and baby wipes measuring 64 meters (210 feet) long.
Andrew Roantree of South West Water says it will “take our sewer team around eight weeks to dissect this monster in exceptionally challenging work conditions.”
He urged the public not to pour grease down the drain or flush baby wipes down the toilet, adding: “Don’t feed the fatberg.”
The revolting fat mass was discovered in drains in the coastal town of Sidmouth.
In 2017, a 250-meter (820-foot) fatberg was found in sewers beneath Whitechapel in east London. A chunk of that later went on display at the Museum of London, nestled inside transparent boxes.

Ensures proper airflow
During the furnace tune-up, the heating technician will check your heating system to ensure it is receiving the proper airflow. Restricted or limited airflow places an unnecessary strain on your furnace that can lead to increased repairs and a shortened lifespan.
Keeps you safe
Furnaces burn fuel to produce heat. This combustion process must be precise to maintain efficiency and safety. Even a small problem can lead to gas leaking into your home or dangerous carbon monoxide levels. Don’t take a chance with the health and safety of you and your family.
A furnace tune-up not only includes cleaning that keeps your furnace running efficiently, but it also catches small problems before they turn into major repairs.
Getting a furnace tune-up now is much more convenient than waiting for a repairman in a cold home without heat. It is also much cheaper.
Improves energy efficiency
A furnace tune-up should include the cleaning and inspection of the furnace burner and heat exchanger. In addition to ensuring safe operation, this will keep your furnace running efficiently all winter.

One common misconception or myth that is the unfortunate root cause behind the bitter fact that so many homeowners pay substantial utility bills every year. Only in certain circumstances are leaks visible and normally, this depends on the location of the leak as well. Plumbing connectors have pipes underground and behind the drywall as well, so if there is a leak then it will only be visible if the leak has caused considerable damage. Pipe leaks will gradually find its way to the drywall and will chip away the paint ruining the interior.
If you suspect that you might have a hidden leak in your home then be sure to give Green Apple Plumbing & Mechanical a call. We are the experts you can trust.
