Plumbing Tips for the Fourth of July
Posted on July 3rd, 2015 by BlueMountain
This weekend, plenty of homeowners will be firing up the grill. Remind your guests to be mindful of your plumbing system. After all, you don’t want to miss the Fourth of July fireworks because your toilet is overflowing! Below are some plumbing tips that will get you through the weekend.
Be Careful What You Flush
With more people in the house, it can only mean one thing–more people using your bathrooms. Do not flush items such as cosmetics, feminine hygiene products, flushable wipes, cotton balls, Q-Tips, etc. This can only increase the risk of a clogged or overflowing toilet.
Your Garbage Disposal Is Not The Trash
When you are cleaning up, it might be tempting to toss the food scraps and leftover oil down the garbage disposal. Don’t give in! Remnants of food, along with grease and oil, should be disposed of in a trash can.
We understand that accidents happen. If you encounter a plumbing problem this weekend, don’t sweat it. Just turn to the professional plumbers at Blue Mountain Plumbing, Heating and Cooling. Call 877-280-5777 to request service on your plumbing system.
