Holiday Plumbing Tips

Plumbing emergencies are never convenient, but they can be especially problematic around Christmas.

Here are some tips that will help you avoid a holiday-related plumbing problem!

  • Don't pour cooking fats or oils down the drain after you've prepared your holiday meal. These fats will solidify in your pipes and cause major problems down the road.
  • Don't put stringy or hard-to-grind waste in the garbage disposal; Things like chicken skin, celery, or banana peels won't grind all the way and will just clog your garbage disposal and drain.
  • Make sure to run cold water down your kitchen drain for fifteen seconds before and after you use the garbage disposal.

Basements and crawlspaces are where sump pumps and sewage pump systems are located, as well as lines entering homes.
