Prepping For The Holidays

It is that time of year again. The holidays are getting very close. This year may not see the same amount of guests as a normal holiday season due to COVID, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be making our own holiday dishes for our small holiday get-together’s.

As a plumber, I have found that there are times of the year when we can expect certain plumbing issues to happen. One of those things is holiday stoppages. When a drain system is subject to the extra grease from the cooking around the holidays it can be the proverbial straw that breaks the camel’s back.
What happens is that in a lot of houses the drains are already partially blocked when compared to their original size. This is even more common in houses that have cast iron pipes for their drains.
When the drains fail then you need a plumber, and it’s an emergency. But if you can take care of the problems before they fail all of the ways you can do it on your own terms.

One of the biggest signs of a drain that is failing is when the toilet bubbles. This is a sign that the drain system is not working properly and needs to be addressed. If you wait to deal with a situation like this it is likely to fail under a load of company and extra cooking.

So to help your holidays go smoother, take care of the drains when you know you have a problem before they become a bigger problem.

And Happy Holidays from all of us at Next Level Plumbing!
