Toilet paper can also be a problem if it’s thicker than two-ply. Thick toilet paper is much more likely to clog together and obstruct the flow of water.
If you have a drain, you should use it regularly. Every drain has a curved section known as a P-trap. This curved section holds standing water, which serves to block the smells that might otherwise come from the tank further down the line.
If you don’t use your drains, that standing water can evaporate, leading to disgusting smells wafting into your bathroom or kitchen. Remedy this by pouring a gallon of water or two down the drain. If the smell persists after doing this, call us. There might be something wrong with your system.
Most of these problems can be easily avoided through the proper use of your drains. If something does go wrong, you’ll want maintenance and repairs performed on your system.
