During the winter season, there are many holidays and much time is spent in the kitchen. Not only, do families spend a lot of their time in the kitchen, when you have house guests, but the plumbing in your bathroom also gets quite a workout as well. Though there are emergency plumbers in Fareham that will be happy to come out and solve your plumbing emergency during the holidays, it’s best if you avoid the plumbing emergency, to begin with. With that being said, read on below for a few of tips to avoid having to call a plumber during your family’s holiday celebrations.
With so many people in the kitchen and bathrooms, it’s easy to end up with clogged sinks. Instead of rushing to call the plumber, try plunging the sinks or even pouring boiling water down the drains to loosen the gunk. If this doesn’t work, then calling the plumber is your best option. Remember to use a sink plunger, instead of a toilet plunger, for hygiene and because they are shaped differently as well.
Another area that you may have plumbing problems with is the toilet. A ton of flushes in a day can lead to clogged lines and a toilet that is overworked and overflowing. Use a toilet plunger first, as it’s your best bet for unclogging the toilet and least until the holiday is over and a plumber can be found. If the plunger doesn’t work and you can get an auger, which won’t hurt your pipes, then that can be used as well.
Try never to pour chemicals down your drains or toilets, as they can be harmful to your pipes and harsh to your health as well. Using these tips can help you avoid calling a plumber this holiday season. If you do find yourself in need of an emergency plumber, contact the professionals at Prestige Plumbers any time.
