If your toilet isn't flushing properly...
You can normally fix this pretty easily using a plunger. If you don't have a plunger, you can purchase one from a hardware store or big box chain.
Simply press the plunger over the drain hole and push firmly up and down to create pressure in the pipe. This should help move anything stuck in the system.
If your shower or sink drains aren't emptying, you can attempt to remove the blockage using a manual drain cleaner. You can purchase these plastic tools from most hardware stores. You may also want to try a liquid drain cleaner, though caution should be exercised to make certain you don't use corrosive chemicals. These could damage your plumbing system.
If you lose power in your property, make certain the breaker hasn't tripped accidentally. If the circuit breaker is in the OFF position, flip it back to ON.
If this doesn't resolve your problem, call your electrical company directly to see if they can help you find a solution. There may be an issue with your account or outages in your area.
