What Not to Do to Your Plumbing during The Holidays

Wow this year has flown by so fast! It’s already the end of November and Thanksgiving is only 8 days away. This time of the year we see a lot of clogged drains and many of these things can be prevented. Most of the drain cleaning is in the kitchen but we also have a lot of main line back ups because of all the guests that people get at this time of the year. If you are on septic, this is even more of an issue because the extra people mean more water and the septic system can get overloaded from the extra usage this time of year. The following is a list of things not to do during the holidays:

  1. Don’t use your sinks garbage disposal as a waste basket.
  • No pumpkin guts
  • Potato Skins
  • Egg shells
  • Starches

Try to minimize what goes in to the garbage disposal. It is only meant for table scraps. Don’t overload it. Turn water on first and then disposal and then add the debris.

If you are on septic and plan to have a lot of family in town it is a good idea to have your tank serviced and pumped and cleaned so it is ready to handle the extra usage of waste water. If you are on city sewer tell your guests not to flush certain things down the toilet such as female hygiene products. If you do this and follow these precautions you should not have to call an Orlando plumber for emergency drain cleaning service this holiday season. If you need a 24 hour emergency plumber in Orlando give us a call at 407-710-0210.
