Plumbing Tips for the Holidays

Schedule Online

The holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year, and the last thing you want to deal with is a plumbing problem in your home. At Zippity Split Plumbing, we’re available for convenient plumbing maintenance appointments as well as emergency plumbing services.

Use these tips to prepare your plumbing system for the holidays:

Clean the Drains

Most people do a lot of cooking during the holidays. This is a good time to make sure your home’s drains are ready for washing produce, dishes and your hands. Be sure to use a debris trap to avoid getting solid debris inside your drains. If your drains are slow, our plumber in Phoenix, AZ can snake them for you any time.

Check the Water Heater

Make sure your home’s water heater is set to no higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. A higher temperature could cause scalding or burns. Check the water heater for leaks. Our plumbing services include water heater maintenance, such as removal of sediment that interferes with the heating element’s ability to transfer heat.

Know What Not to Flush

The drains and toilets in your home seem like a convenient spot to get rid of lots of stuff. It might be tempting to flush old medication down the toilet. However, this is bad for your plumbing and the water supply. Your holiday guests might not realize they shouldn’t flush baby wipes or hygiene products. Keep them informed about only flushing human waste and toilet paper down the toilet. If your toilet or a drain clogs, we’re always available for urgent plumbing repairs.

Contact Zippity Split Plumbing, the leading plumbing company, to help you avoid a holiday plumbing disaster. These tips and routine maintenance can prevent many plumbing problems. If you have any questions or concerns about your plumbing system, get in touch with our team today.
