The last thing you want to deal with during the holidays is a plumbing emergency, which, as per Murphy’s Law will be when you have family over for Christmas dinner, and the toilet overflows. Or when you have houseguests but suddenly no hot water for showers or laundry. The time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve is when most homes increase their water use. It is also a time when things tend to go awry. The extra strain on your plumbing can be the final straw for your old water heater, a weak toilet, a clogged drain, or any other area you may have been putting off repairs.
If you want to avoid the hassle, expense, and embarrassment of a plumbing emergency over the holidays this year, now is the time to act. By investing in plumbing maintenance now, you can save yourself a future headache, and have priceless peace of mind for yourself and the guests you might host over the holidays.
Here are a few things to put on your to-do list before the holiday rush arrives:
1. Service your water heater
Don’t let your water heater malfunction right when it’s cold and you’re busy! It’s simple to schedule a water heater maintenance call with a local plumber. This can tell you how to keep it running efficiently and how much life is left in it.
2. Clean your drains
Having a drain, toilet, or tub backup can be an embarrassing and smelly problem. Get your drains professionally cleaned now so you can enjoy hygienic, optimal water flow.
3. Get your septic tank pumped
Septic systems are common in homes and can last a long time, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need maintenance. Schedule your septic system pumping, cleaning, or repair, before the holiday rush begins.
If you have noticed any problems in your home, like not enough hot water, low water pressure, drains that don’t back up, strange smells from the pipes, or any other water problem, don’t delay.
