Plumbing Tips for the Holiday Season

The Holiday season is not far away. Total Pluming would like to provide some helpful plumbing tips for the kitchen. Typically more food is put down the sink during the holiday’s, which can potential present some plumbing issues.

Some suggestions we have:

Avoid pouring grease or other cooking fats down the sink. They solidify and cause clogs. Wipe any grease from pots and pans before washing in the sink.

Never put hard-to-grind, stringy, fibrous waste into the garbage disposer. Some examples are poultry skins, carrots, celery, pumpkin pulp or banana peels. They will clog your sink because the disposer can’t grind these type of item sufficiently.

Run cold water down the drain for about 15 seconds before and after using he disposer to flush waste down.

Turn the disposer on before adding waste and debris.

We hope you find our tips helpful. Check our Services page for a more complete list of plumbing services we offer.

We proudly serve Mesquite, Dallas, Garland, Plano, Rockwall and other surrounding DFW areas.
