Protecting Your Plumbing During Parties

Darlene Stanley

Hosting a large party can put a considerable strain on your plumbing system. There will be an increased volume and variety of waste produced, increased used of the toilet, and increased use of water (both hot and cold). All these can trigger a plumbing malfunction if you don't take the necessary precautions. Below are a few precautions that can help.

Prevent Drain clogs

The risk of a drain clogging rises when you host a big party. Clogged drains can lead to backups, which can disrupt your party and lead to its premature ending. Below are a few tips you can use to prevent drain clogging during your parties:

  • Give your garbage disposal a breather by disposing of food remains via alternative means
  • Don't send fats, oils, and grease down the drain
  • Flush the drains regularly by pouring hot water down the drain to keep them clear
  • Install screens over bathroom drains to catch hair

In short, be extra vigilant with the usual measures you use to keep your drains clear.

Place a Waste Bin in the Bathroom

A clogged toilet can dampen the mood of a party faster than you think. Some people have a habit of flushing every kind of waste down the toilet, and the wastes end up clogging the toilets and triggering backups. Place a garbage bin in the bathroom so that your guests can see it and remind themselves to use it instead of using the toilet for garbage disposal.

Have A Plunger On Standby

Despite your best measures, there is always a chance that your drains or toilet may get clogged before the party is over. You need to have drain-unclogging tools, such as a plunger, on standby. That way, you will be able to deal with emerging issues before wastes back up in your house.

Get the Contact of an Emergency Plumber

Lastly, it makes sense to have the contact of an emergency plumber. Despite your best efforts, you cannot rule out the possibility that something might go wrong with your plumbing system during the party. Having an emergency plumber's contacts means you can get any malfunction fixed within the shortest time possible.

Hopefully, you won't experience any plumbing problems at your party. As an additional precaution, you should service your plumbing system before your party date. The plumber will identify points of concern and fix them to prevent malfunctions. A regularly maintained plumbing system is less likely to malfunction than a neglected one. Contact a local plumbing company like Windy City Rooter Inc for more information.

During the summer months, I enjoy taking care of my outdoor plants and flowers. Because I live in the southern United States, my vegetation needs water almost daily. Thankfully, I have a convenient outdoor faucet connected to my home. However, I recently endured some problems with this source of water. When I turned on the faucet, I was greeted with a forceful spray of water going in all directions. Before I could gather my senses and turn the water off, I resembled my dog after she jumps into a pool of water. To avoid the wet dog look in the future, I plan to hire a professional plumber to take care of my faulty faucet.
