Seasonal Plumbing Tips for an Enjoyable Holiday

By Ty Watson

Clogged drains got you down this holiday season? Do you NEED a plumber who can understand the structure of your plumbing system, solid piping and ALL the plumbing goods involved? Many families throw holiday parties which can cause a strain on their plumbing system. Follow the tips given below to avoid any disaster:

SEASONAL PLUMBING TIPS FOR AN ENJOYABLE HOLIDAY

PLUMBING TIPS FOR THE KITCHEN

  • Avoid pouring cooking oil of greasy food and find alternate ways to dispose of your left overs.
  • Never put fibrous waste, stringy and hard to grind food items like banana peels, pumpkin pulp, celery, carrot or poultry sink down the drain. Use cold water flow for 15-20 seconds before and after making use of the disposer to thoroughly clean the main pipe.
  • Maintain adequate water pressure to run the washing machine and the dishwasher so that there's no debris left over.

TIPS FOR THE BATHROOM

  • Plan ahead about the water consumption and give time for the water to flow out of the main pipeline. Avoid taking showers one after the other as this might slow down the sewage.
  • Avoid scalding by not exceeding the hot water temp by 125 degree Fahrenheit.
  • If the shower seems to be not working fine, wrap a plastic bag containing vinegar over the shower head. Make use of toothbrush next morning to clean the mineral deposits and this will help you restore the water flow.

DEALING WITH FROZEN PIPES

Frozen pipes will eventually lead to a crack and will ultimately cost you on time as well as money. Expanding water in the form of ice increase the pressure and this kind of a blockage can cause the entire plumbing system to fail. To stay prepared this winter, install an insulation system in your pipe line. Or you can bury the pipe line below the frost line and that will prevent the water from freezing. You can even make use of wrappings and insulation sleeves. Allowing the faucet to drip during extreme temperature will keep the flow to continue and there would be no more bursting of pipelines.
