Check Your Sinks and Tubs for Overflow Protection

Many homeowners don’t realize that they have “overflow” protection built into their tubs and vanity sinks, which could prevent an expensive mess. But it only works if the opening and drain are not clogged with debris, silt or hair.

Next time you fill up your tub or sink, allow it to reach the overflow level, to see if the channel is clear and readily able to draw water from the basin, in the event the faucet is left running.

If it can’t take enough water to prevent rising water from spilling onto the floor, use a pipe cleaner or small wire brush to ensure that is is clear.
