How to flush your toilet when your water service is turned off
If you will be home during the water service interruption, here are some tips to keep your toilet flushing.
- Fill your bathtub with water.
- Get a bucket (gallon or several gallons) and use the bath water to fill the tank or bowl after the first flush.
- Keep in mind water service will be restored each day, so your tub can be refilled.
- Keep small children safe around the water.
- Do not use the bathtub water for drinking. Used bottled/boiled water only for drinking, cooking, etc.
