Plumbing Advice for a Stress-Free Labor Day Weekend

By: Samantha Green

The long weekend awaits! The summer is sadly coming to an end but not without one final celebration. Running into a plumbing issue is probably one of the last things you want to deal with, this Labor Day, so make sure to keep these simple tips in mind before you head off to the BBQ.

Be Cautious of What Goes Down Your Garbage Disposal

It may seem easy to simply throw food scraps, oil, or grease down the drain but this is what will clog your pipes and eventually cause your sink to back-up. Celery, pasta, potato peels, and your pipes do not mix.

Put a Trash Bin in Your Bathroom

Putting a garbage can next to the toilet will remind guests not to flush anything that you shouldn’t. Toilet paper and waste only to avoid clogs!

Locate Your Main Water Shut Off Valve

In case of a plumbing emergency, find out where the main water valve is in your home. This is crucial to make sure you have as little flooding damage as possible.

Get The Plunger!

Invest in a proper plunger. Most plumbing issues can be solved with this simple tool, even in your sink.

Check Your Hose

Going into the cooler months, make sure to check your hose spigot for leaks. This could save you a few bucks on your next water bill.

Have a great, long weekend! If you do end up running into any plumbing emergencies, 1-Tom-Plumber is on call 24/7! Call the plumber whose name is his number at 1-866-758-6237.
