Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Do if My Toilet Overflows?
The first thing to do is find the water supply valve and turn it off. In fact, you should always know where to find it, even before you are in the midst of an emergency. Do not flush your toilet again, as it will only cause more of a mess. Soak up the water on the floor with some old rags and towels and then get them and your rugs out of the way. Try a plunger to see if you can quickly fix the problem on your own. If it doesn’t work, contact Raymark Plumbing & Sewer, and we’ll find out what the real problem is.
