Don’t Let a Plumbing Disaster Ruin Family Bonding

Summer is a great time for family members to visit. Hosting the in-laws at your house is going to put extra stress on you and your plumbing system alike. Having more people at your house means there will be additional usage of your plumbing system.

After a nice family barbecue or cookout, the last thing you want to do is wash the dishes. However, you find yourself with a sponge in hand and some dish soap moments later. You might be tempted to throw small scraps of leftovers into the food disposal instead of the garbage. There are certain foods that should never go in the garbage disposal because they lead to clogs.  Never put watermelon, fibrous vegetables, starchy foods, or grease in the garbage disposal. Being careless about what you put in the garbage disposal can create a plumbing disaster and bring any family gathering to a screeching halt.

Due to increased usage, there is a higher risk for clogs to occur. An excessive and unnecessary amount of toilet paper is usually the culprit behind clogged toilets. If you have young relatives, teach them to use less toilet paper. Should your toilet get clogged when your relatives are visiting, do not fret. Plumbing Medic is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to service all of your plumbing emergencies.
