How to Prevent Memorial Day Weekend Plumbing Problems

Barbeque Griller

Are you planning a Memorial Day party this weekend? As you get your plans together, invite over family and friends, and figure out what you will be BBQing, don’t forget to take a few extra steps towards caring for your plumbing system. Here are a few tips to prevent problems during your celebration.

Prevent Memorial Day Plumbing Problems:

  • Keep BBQ Foods Out of the Disposal – Certain foods can cause damage to your garbage disposal. Starchy foods like macaroni salad can expand and clog the drain, while bones from ribs can damage the blades. Be careful about what you are putting down your kitchen sink drain.

  • Give a Friendly Reminder to Guests – A clogged toilet during a party can be a nightmare. Remind guests to only flush waste and toilet paper!

  • Check for Leaks – With more people in your home, you’ll be using more water. Check for leaks before the party begins to make sure that you aren’t wasting water during the celebration.
