Labor Day Weekend Plumbing Tips

Labor Day weekend is here! As you celebrate the unofficial end of summer and the start of the back-to-school season with friends and family, make sure that you are taking the time to prevent plumbing problems, too.  The last thing that you want is a clogged toilet in the middle of a party! Here are a few plumbing tips to help ensure that your Labor Day party goes smoothly.

Labor Day Plumbing Tips:

  • Keep BBQ Grease Out of Your Drains – Grease may look like a liquid, but when it hardens it can wreak havoc on your plumbing system. Make sure that all grease is disposed of in a separate container in the trash.
  • Know How to Locate Your Main Water Valve – In the event of an emergency, it’s important that you know where your main water valve is. This will ensure that your home is safe and protected if you do run into a plumbing problem — until a professional technician can come and fix your plumbing issue.
  • Watch What You Put In Your Disposal – Many popular BBQ foods like pasta salad, potato salad, ribs, and corn can’t go down your garbage disposal. Make sure that any of these food scraps go in the trash, instead.
  • Make Sure There is a Garbage Can In Your Bathroom – You’ll want to make sure that every bathroom in your home has a garbage can. You don’t want to tempt guests to flush something that they shouldn’t.
