Plumbing Tips for Fourth of July Weekend

Can you believe that the Fourth of July is tomorrow? If you are having company over, it’s time to prepare for their arrival. With more guests in your house, more people will be utilizing your plumbing system. Below are some tips that will help your pipes go with the flow.

Flush This, Not That

Do you have little ones attending the party? It is important to remind them what they can and cannot flush down the toilet. Items such as tissues, napkins, paper towels, cotton swabs, cosmetics and flushable wipes should not be flushed.

The Garbage Disposal is Not the Garbage

After the party is over, it’s clean up time. You may be tempted to toss leftover food scraps into the garbage disposal and call it a day. Resist the temptation! No food scraps should make their way down the garbage disposal, as it can cause a clog.
