1. To unclog slow drains without harsh chemicals, pour boiling water into the drain, followed by a cup of baking soda, then 1-2 cups of vinegar (depending on the type). The reaction can dislodge common blockages.



 



2. To fix a dripping faucet caused by a faulty washer, start by shutting off the fixture’s water supply. Then, remove the handle’s cap and set-screw and remove the handle to expose the washer. Replace the washer or O-ring. (Note: Washerless faucets may require a new cartridge, which may be covered by a manufacturer’s warranty).



 



3. A running toilet requires an adjustment to the flapper mechanism in the tank. Ensure the flapper’s arm or chain does not impede it from dropping into place to stop the flow to the bowl. If the flow persists after the flapper settles, it may be corroded or puckered, leaving an imperfect seal. If so, a replacement flapper is required.
