5 Holiday Plumbing Tips

Check out these 5 tips to keep your home plumbing working great this holiday season.

Make Sure Your Home Is Ready

Expecting family this holiday season? Don’t wait to fix that toilet, sink, or shower issue. Just like other systems in your house, your plumbing system needs maintenance too. Our expert technicians can guide you through proper maintenance and repair any emergency issues.

Fewer Cooks In The Kitchen

Limiting the amount of family in the kitchen can help lower the chances of rings, toys, and other things ending up down the drain. Encouraging family to use other spaces for socializing can help reduce distractions and accidents.

Properly Dispose of Grease

As grease cools, it congeals and can cause blockages in your pipes. So make sure you dispose of grease the proper way: once it isn’t piping hot, pour it it into an extra mason jar or a plastic bag and place it in the garbage.

Respect Your Disposal

Try not to use your garbage disposal as a catch-all for food waste. Avoid sending the following down the drain:

  • Fibrous Foods
  • Potato Peels
  • Eggshells
  • Bones
  • Fruit Pits
  • Pasta and Noodles
  • Coffee Grounds

Flush Only Toilet Paper

Toilet paper is specifically designed to dissolve in water so that it is unlikely to cause a clog. Other items… are not. Avoid flushing:

  • Cotton Balls
  • Feminine Products
  • Paper Towels
  • Facial Cleansing Wipes
  • Kids Toys
