Is your plumbing ready for the holidays?
Your meal is planned and family is on the way, but is your plumbing ready for the holidays?
The holidays are a special time to make memories with family and friends. But if you aren't prepared, a holiday with family can turn into a plumbing disaster.
Keep reading to find out 4 ways to prepare your plumbing for the holidays.
Flush Your Hot Water Heater
If you have guests staying at your home for the holidays, you'll want to make sure that your water heater is working properly and there is enough hot water for everyone.
It is recommended that you flush your hot water heater once a year. Flushing your water heater removes sediment from inside of the water heater that may be causing it to heat less efficiently. Regular maintenance also ensures your water heater lasts as long as possible before needing to be replaced.
Repair Your Toilets
More holiday guests mean more people using your toilets. If you already have a clogged toilet, the increased use during the holidays are likely going to cause problems. If a toilet gets clogged and overflows into your bathroom, it will not only create a mess, but could potentially damage your floors.
Be proactive and deal with any needed toilet repairs ahead of the holidays. This will allow you to relax and enjoy time with family without worrying about your plumbing. It will also lead to a better experience for your guests.
Take Care Of Cosmetic Repairs
What better time to install a new sink or replace your fixtures than before the holidays? Thanksgiving and Christmas are two holidays when your home will likely be filled with more guests than any other time of the year. It is the perfect time to treat yourself to the gift of updated plumbing fixtures!
Look At Your Home From Your Guest's Perspective
Being a good host means looking at your home from the perspective of your guest. If your bathroom has a leak, a clogged drain or other plumbing problems, it can have a negative effect on their stay. For example, a faucet that constantly drips or a toilet that runs continuously not only wastes water, but can make it more difficult for your guest to sleep.
