  1. Teach your household to follow the basic rule of proper toilet bowl maintenance: “The only good paper is (regular-thickness) toilet paper.” Disposable diapers, wipes, paper towels, feminine products, and even ultra-thick, extra-strength TP can get in there and clog up your drains. Place a handy covered bin in the bathroom for disposal of these items.
  2. Don’t try to flush leftover food, either. Large, hard particles can get stuck, while grease and oils will tend to harden and contribute mightily to drain clog. Besides, all that unnecessary flushing will add up to many gallons of wasted water over time.
  3. Consider replacing any old-fashioned water hog toilets with the low-flow variety, to save even more H2O. If you’re still using a toilet manufactured prior to 1994, it may be quaffing as much as 7 gallons per flush. Compare that with today’s water-sparing models, at only 1.6 gallons per flush.
  4. Install a toilet lid lock if you have small children in your family. Besides its vital function of helping to keep your sweet babies safe, this handy device will prevent mischievous toddlers from conducting their own brand of science experiments.
  5. Equip your bathroom with a convenient plunger. Unlike the standard model made for use in flat bathroom or kitchen sinks, a dedicated toilet plunger is manufactured with a flange – picture a broad rubber lip — that seals to the curved shape of your toilet bowl outlet for the most effective plunging. If the toilet threatens to overflow, bail out some of the water with a bucket or similar container so you have room to plunge.
