Why There Are More Plumbing Problems Over The Holidays

Did you know that there are more plumbing problems during the holiday season than at any other time of the year? There are a number of reasons for this. Most of them have to do with either the colder weather that often comes over the holidays, or because there are more people in your house than there normally are. Here’s what you need to know to protect your plumbing this season:

Watch the Garbage Disposal

With so many cooks in the kitchen and so many dishes on the stove, it’s no wonder the garbage disposal sees more use during the holidays than at other times of year. Make sure that it keeps working by throwing away most food scraps, including coffee grounds, banana peels, egg shells, and oils. Contact us at Larry & Sons for garbage disposal repair or replacement.

Keep an Eye On Your Water Heater

Your water heater may have to work harder in the winter because it’s so cold outside. Monitor it to make sure it’s working the way it’s supposed to. You may also want to buy an insulating cover at your hardware store. This will help keep the water warm so it doesn’t have to work as hard.

Check the Toilets

Make sure guests are flushing the toilets consistently. If you have any that clog regularly, ask guests to limit the amount of toilet paper they use and to not flush feminine products Give us a call for drain cleaning or toilet repair in Hagerstown.
