How To Keep Your Plumbing In Shape For Thanksgiving

It’s probably not too shocking to hear that Thanksgiving is the busiest time of the year for a plumbing company. While we pride ourselves on excellent customer service, we know you don’t want to have to call a plumber for service over the holiday, or to deal with the hassle and inconvenience of a plumbing clog or leak when you are preparing for one of the biggest meals of the year. Here’s how you can get ready for those holiday meals without putting too much strain on your plumbing.

Replace older plumbing components

If you’ve considered replacing a sink, faucet, or garbage disposal for any reason, now is the time. Here are a few reasons to upgrade your kitchen plumbing components:

  • A leaky faucet: This wastes water and may only get worse as demand on the faucet increases.
  • Difficulty cooking or cleaning: Install a faucet with a removable spray feature or one that is positioned higher to make it easier to fill up deep pots with water or for ease of cleaning.
  • Slow or stopped garbage disposal: You can’t be without your disposal when preparing a Thanksgiving meal. Replace your broken disposal unit today!

Know how to use the disposal

Keep anything inedible—wrappers, turkey bones, popcorn kernels—out of the disposal. Break up food into smaller chunks to reduce the unit’s workload, and slow down on the disposal use during cleanup—put as much of the turkey in the trash can as possible! Know that rice expands in water, and may also threaten to clog your drains. We also recommend that you don’t pour fats, oils, and grease into the drain, as these can solidify in the pipes and lead to major clogs.

Schedule professional drain cleaning

One less conventional suggestion we have for homeowners trying to avoid drain clogs is to schedule drain cleaning service with a professional plumber. Professional drain cleaning can remove grease and residue in the drain and sewer line and reduce the chances of a clog, since debris has nothing to cling to in the pipes.
