Common Thanksgiving Plumbing Malfunctions
With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, you will want to make sure that you keep an eye out for plumbing issues. This time of year, plumbing problems are a common occurrence. Knowing what to look for and having a reliable plumber on standby is imperative.
Plumbing Issues That Can Happen During Thanksgiving
There are several issues you may have to deal with during this time of year. These include:
- Clogged sinks. You may be cooking more often during this time, and things like grease can make it down your drain. If this happens, you will need to get the clog out as soon as possible. If the clog is not treated quickly, it can cause water to back up into your home. If you cannot remove the clog yourself, call your plumber as soon as possible to address the issue.
- Clogged toilet. It is easy, with the increased number of people in your home, for your toilet to become clogged. This could be because of someone flushing too much toilet paper, or a toy was accidentally flushed. A toilet clog needs to be addressed as soon as possible to ensure that you can use your toilets.
- Garbage disposal issues. Your garbage disposal can be essential during this time of year to eliminate unwanted food scraps. If you put in bones, or any large food scraps down your garbage disposal, it can cause your garbage disposal to fail. If you hear any gurgling sounds or your garbage disposal is not working correctly, call your plumber.
- No hot water. A common issue that is seen during this time a year is not enough hot water. You go to shower only to find out that several people have taken a shower during the day and your hot water is out. This may be an issue caused by the increase in guests in your house if you have a storage-tank water heater; otherwise, your water heater may be in need of maintenance or repairs.
