"Our air conditioner was leaking through this pipe and flooding our laundry room and hallway. My husband's fix was to put a funnel under it, running onto a curtain rod, that then ran to a floor drain, with a towel under for added protection. In his defense, it worked beautifully."
On occasion, a toilet's drainage stopper can have a bit of floating problem, in that it won't be totally airtight. This will make the stopper float upward, causing water to continuously drain out of the tank. Enter scrub brush to save the day (and the water bill...)!
