The holiday season is tailor-made for plumbing disasters.
They can happen in your garbage disposal – where stringy pulp can really gum up your gears – or in your drain, where fat from your roast or turkey can harden into a pipe-clogging obstruction. A holiday guest can even mistake your toilet for a garbage pail, creating further problems.
Here are six tips to avoid holiday plumbing mayhem:
Pour turkey / roast grease into a disposable container and let it congeal; then discard the container in the trash.
Carefully consider what you put in your garbage disposal, avoiding:
Always use lots of water in your disposal, and let it run at least 30 seconds.
Remind your guest that the toilet is not a garbage pail – TP only!
If you have any plumbing issues, address them before holiday company arrives.
