Get ready to supercharge your bathroom! What’s supercharging your bathroom? It’s making sure you’ve got the right tools and the right knowledge to know you aren’t wasting time and money on any plumbing maintenance or issues. Our SuperTechs have rounded up our top tips to share with you! So let’s dive into this list:
Know your plungers
The first way to supercharge your bathroom is to make sure you’re working with the right equipment. Having a plunger handy is key, but having the correct kind of plunger is even better. When you think of a regular plunger, you’re probably picturing a sink plunger like this:
It’s considered a sink plunger since it needs a flat surface to create the necessary suction to free a clog. A toilet plunger has a cup and a soft rubber flap coming out of it. The rubber flap fits into a toilet drain and creates the suction to move clogs.

Make sure the hot water is set to the perfect temperature
An awesome bathroom is going to have Goldilocks hot water- not too hot and not too cold. Take a look at your hot water heater and check out what temperature it’s set at. Keep in mind that water that’s set too cool will never quite feel comfortable. But setting the water heater to higher than 120 degrees can be dangerous. Children and older adults are at a higher risk for scalds and burns since their skin is thinner. So be sure to check that your water is set to a comfortable and safe temperature!
Consider a plumbing tune up to get everything checked out
You can’t supercharge your bathroom if you don’t know where it stands! Call our expert SuperTechs for a plumbing tune up and get a report on the status of your pipes and plumbing fixtures.
Find ways to conserve water
You and your family can make small changes that will add up to big savings on your water bill.
Remember to be smart about your water usage. Limit time in the shower and don’t leave the water running when no one is using it. A nice long shower can be relaxing, so try switching to a low-flow showerhead. It can save up to 15 gallons of water per shower!
Don’t flush your money down the drain! Most toilets use about 3.5 gallons per flush. While you can save money by switching to a low flush toilet, you can save even more money by doing it yourself! You can make a DIY low flush toilet by adding a heavy item (like a brick or stone) in the back of the tank to displace the water and conserve more water per flush. Also, if you notice that your toilet is running or leaking, call Strittmatters! Don’t let those leaks add any more money to your water bill.
