Prevent Plumbing Problems This Holiday Season

Tips From The Plumbing Pros

We wish you and your family the Happiest Holiday season!

The holidays put additional stress on your home’s plumbing and drain system. More food prep, more use of the bathroom and more showers and baths. Keep these tips in mind to prevent problems.

Garbage disposal tips:

  • Don’t put oil or grease down the drain
  • Use lots of cold water before and after operating your disposal
  • Don’t put fibrous fruit or vegetable waste in the disposal
  • No bones in the disposal!

Toilet & drain clogs tips:

  • Don’t use drains and toilets as waste baskets
  • Don’t flush cotton balls, wet wipes, hair or anything other than toilet paper
  • Try a plunger…but don’t use chemicals to unclog drains, they damage pipes and can add charges if you need to call a professional
  • Try pouring near boiling water down clogged drains

Water heater tips:

  • Inspect the unit for any water on the floor or leaks at seams
  • If it isn’t making enough hot water, you may need maintenance or replacement
  • Banging or cracking noises usually occur before a failure

Plumbing problems just get worse over time. An ounce of prevention IS worth a pound of cure when it comes to preventing plumbing emergencies. If you spot any issues, get them fixed before they become a big problem that could put a damper on your holiday festivities. We’d love to help. If it’s about water in your home…WE DO IT!
