Christmas Plumbing Tips
Getting ready for the holidays isn’t just about buying Christmas gifts, making your hair appointments, baking cookies and decorating your house. It’s the time to take stock of critical home issues, such as whether your toilet flappers are working properly. It could save some awkward conversations with your in-laws, such as describing the correct way to jiggle the handle of the only toilet in your house to get it to flush, guests having NO hot water in their showers, toilet over flows when they flush it, the faucet handle falls off. This is just a few of the plumbing problems that can happen over the Christmas Holiday if neglect your plumbing.
You give your car regular maintenance; why not your plumbing? When our homes are filled with family and friends our kitchens and bathrooms are in use almost 24/7. Call Wimpy’s Plumbing & Air before your company arrives! A lot of things related to plumbing get neglected throughout the year, you’re talking slow drains, shower drains plugged with hair, clogged sinks, toilets that run consistently and dripping faucets.
Wimpy’s will review your plumbing to make sure everything is in working order. We will check the following items;
1. Kitchen – sink drainage, faucet, strainer, drain piping, disposal, ice maker, dishwasher
2. Main Shut- off valve
3. Bathrooms – drainage, faucets, toilets, tub/shower
4. Water Heater – guests like hot water
5. Laundry Room – washing machine drainage, laundry tub/faucet
This is also a great time to update your kitchen and bathroom faucets with shiny new ones. Also, check out your toilet, is it stained and looks dirty all the time even after you clean it? We highly recommend the Gerber Avalanche Comfort Height Toilets.
Christmas is a time for making good memories with your family and friends, not plumbing nightmares!
We are available 24/7 for all your emergency plumbing needs. Call and leave a message if after hours and we will return your phone call.
Have a Merry Christmas from all of us at Wimpy’s Plumbing & Air.
