During my time here at Sanford Kramer Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning & Electric, I’ve picked up on some interesting tidbits about caring for the systems in your home. One interesting thing I recently learned is that you should not “let it mellow” as the saying goes.
Many people, including myself up until now, avoid flushing the toilet after going to the bathroom in the middle of the night, so as to not wake people who are sleeping in a nearby room. Unfortunately, letting it mellow is not good for your toilet because it causes calcium deposits to build up. Calcium will slowly eat away at and shorten the life of your toilet.
So, next time you go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, you’ll have a tough decision to make. What’s it going to be: the beauty sleep of a family member or the life span of your toilet?
