Holiday Plumbing Checklist: Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late!

November 01, 2020

The holiday season is approaching, which means it’s time to get ready for guests to arrive. While you are cleaning and decorating, make sure you also prepare your plumbing for the holiday season. It might sound silly, but good holiday plumbing is a very important part of the festivities. Follow these tips to prevent a clog or leak from ruining your holiday fun.

Make Sure Your Water is Guest-Ready

Your houseguests will appreciate your holiday plumbing efforts! Check your pipes, hot water heater, and water pressure before friends and family arrive for the holidays. A plumbing issue during this time will only add to your holiday stress. Plus (of course) it will also make guests uncomfortable. Check your plumbing early to prevent problems before they happen.

Prevent Your Pipes From Freezing

Frozen pipes might not sound like a big deal, but they can be dangerous. Protecting your pipes during the winter months will prevent freezing and bursting. Simply cover your pipes with an insulated sleeve or wrap. You can ask your plumber to help you do this.

Prepare For Toilet Clogs

We know this isn’t the most pleasant thing to think about. However, it’s something that usually happens when you have a lot of guests at your house. Prepare for a clogged toiled ahead of time. Check your toilet’s bowl and water levels before your guests arrive. Also, be sure to have a plunger ready in each bathroom. This will prevent messes and embarrassing moments.
