When the holiday season arrives, there's nothing like stringing lights outside your home and on your Christmas tree. It's also time to plan all of those holiday parties that you're going to host. Aside from the food, music, games, and other adventures that are in store for your guests, consider a few of the plumbing issues that could arise and how you can control them so that you're not contacting a plumber once your party is over.
Place Strainers in Sinks
A simple way to ensure that all of those party foods don't go down the drain is by putting strainers in the sinks. These will catch foods that might be left on plates when your guests are finished eating. They can prevent clogs from forming in your drains and pipes so that the water continues flowing as it should.
Check the Hot Water Heaters
If you plan to have guests spend the night at your home, then make sure the water heater is in proper working condition. You don't want your guests to have to take a cold shower or wash their hands with cold water in the middle of winter.
Use Disposable Plates And Utensils
Instead of washing all of the items that guests use at your holiday party, consider getting disposable items that have festive images on them. From cups to forks and spoons, you can get enough supplies so that the only dishes you have to wash are the ones that you use for cooking. You could even get foods that are already prepared so that you can save even more water.
Bottom line: Holiday festivities can wreak havoc on your plumbing system. If you encounter any problems, contact S&D Plumbing at (512) 648-4663.
