Preparing Your Plumbing For Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving leads to more guests in your home, resulting in an increased workload for your plumbing. There is the kitchen, which takes on the load of washing down grease, leftovers and all sorts of other things. Then there is the bathroom, which is going to more than double its workload during this busy season. To ensure the health of your plumbing system, start getting it prepared for what is sure to be a bumpy ride.

Garbage Disposal
Your garbage disposal is tough, but it is not indestructible. You need to be cautious of what you put into it and you should avoid the following items:

  • Egg Shells
  • Coffee Grinds
  • Starchy Waste
  • Celery
  • Potato Peels

Drain Cleaning
It might be a good idea to tie up a few loose ends before the craziness of the holiday sets in. You know your kitchen sink is going to take a beating, so you should give the drain a cleaning to put it in the best position to succeed. Take two tablespoons of baking soda and pour it down the drain so that it clings to the walls. Then, pour boiling water down there and let the solution work its magic. Once a few minutes have gone by, do it again to ensure a thorough clean.

Bathroom Plumbing
Any small problems you’re currently having in the bathroom could grow larger with the higher volume of usage. If you notice water backing up in your toilet or a slow moving sink drain, point it out to a professional now to avoid disaster. Regardless of the problem, the plumbing experts at Levine & Sons have the solution.
