Quick toilet fixes that don’t need a plumber

Once you get secured in your new place  and the islamic home loans out of the way, you’ll  find that the first five years can be the most challenging economically. Islamic mortgage loans are a great tool to stay Sharia compliant and fee from riba, but they won’t put a lot of money in your pocket while you’re making the transition from renter to homeowner. That’s where learning to do things yourself comes in handy and following are a few great tips on some quick fixes that will save you a few bucks.

  • If the toilet handle breaks while you’re using the appliance, there’s no need to panic. Just take the top off and reach inside to pull the chain to flush. Replacement parts are as close as the nearest home improvement store.
  • It’s definitely a worst case scenario, but smart phones get dropped in the toilet from time to time and, although it sounds fantastic, there is a solution. By taking the phone apart after you’ve wiped it down and separating it from the battery, you can place both in a bowl of uncooked rice for a day to try and save it.

Finally, if your toilet is actually overflowing, you need to reach for the shutoff value that’s located behind the unit and turn it off to stop the water. After that, reach inside and pull the ballcock up so the excess drains away from the tank. Being in charge of some of these smaller home emergencies will build on the sense of control you started to foster with Islamic home loans.
