Prepare Your Plumbing for the Holiday Season

Holiday plumbingThere are three things that are certain in life: death, taxes, and plumbing problems. Okay, okay. Maybe plumbing problems aren’t certain but they are something that practically all of us deal with. As such, it’s important to think about plumbing issues before they happen. Just as we prepare for tax season, we should prepare for the holiday plumbing season. You heard correctly.

Did you know that holidays are the busiest times of the year for plumbers? They are driving out to homes all over the nation to pull leftover casserole from clogged drains or unclog toilets that have been used by too many guests.

Be prepared and communicate!

With this in mind, be prepared! Don’t be afraid to tell your guests to be gentle with the old toilet in the back bathroom. She’s an oldie, but reliable…if you’re patient with her.

Tell Auntie that it’s okay if she doesn’t like your casserole, but that she doesn’t have to try to hide the evidence in the sink rather than in the trashcan.

A little communication between you and your guests can go a long way and save you a pretty penny. Because unfortunately, the prices for plumbing services tend to go up on these days.

Don’t want to have that plumbing conversation with your holiday guests?

One suggestion to keep these slightly embarrassing conversations from happening in your home is to have everything checked out beforehand. Have a Thornton Plumbing technician come out to your home before the big day and have a thorough inspection done. This could prevent future problems from arising on that most expensive day of the plumber’s year.

Don’t deal with a clogged drain on the day of your festivities.

So, as the holiday plumbing season approaches, don’t be caught off guard. Call us at 317-697-9265 to have a team member come check out your plumbing before your house is full of family. We at Thornton Plumbing are happy to help whatever the day, but we’d rather not see you while you’re trying to pull a 20-pound turkey out of the oven.
