Holiday Plumbing Safety Tips from Emergency Plumbing

Holiday Plumbing Safety Tips from Your Trusted Experts


The holiday season is here, and with it comes joyful gatherings, delicious feasts, and, let's be honest, a whole lot of cooking and bathroom usage. At this busy time of year, it's important to take care of your home's plumbing to avoid any unwanted emergencies.


Here are some essential tips to keep your plumbing in top shape during the holidays:


1. Mind Your Kitchen Sink:


- Avoid pouring fats, oils, and grease down the drain. They solidify and can cause serious clogs.

- Use a sink strainer to catch food scraps and prevent them from going down the drain.

2. Garbage Disposal Care:

 - Run cold water before and after using the disposal.

- Avoid disposing of fibrous foods like celery, potato peels, or onion skins, which can tangle the disposal blades.


3. Toilet Maintenance:

- Only flush bathroom tissue. Even "flushable" wipes can clog pipes.

- Keep a plunger handy for minor clogs to prevent them from becoming major problems.


4. Be Prepared for Guests:

- Stagger showers to maintain water pressure and give your water heater time to recover.

- Provide a trash bin in the bathroom to encourage guests not to flush anything inappropriate.


5. Inspect for Leaks:

- Check faucets and pipes for leaks. A small drip can turn into a big problem if left unattended.


6. Know Your Main Water Valve:

- In case of a major leak, knowing how to turn off the main water supply quickly can prevent extensive damage.


7. Schedule a Pre-Holiday Checkup: 

- Consider having a professional inspection before the holidays to ensure everything is in working order.


Remember, the holidays are a time for joy and celebration, not for plumbing woes! By following these simple tips, you can keep your home's plumbing system running smoothly and focus on what truly matters - spending quality time with your loved ones.
