The holiday season is here, and as you get ready to deck the halls and welcome guests into your home, it is essential to ensure that your plumbing is in its best condition. Although Arizona might escape winter’s icy grasp, a little pre-celebration plumbing check-up can go a long way in ensuring a seamless and enjoyable holiday season. Here are some tips on how to make sure your plumbing is ready for winter:
Start your plumbing preparations by giving faucets, pipes, and fixtures a thorough check for leaks. Even the smallest drip can add up to significant water wastage over time. Tighten connections, replace worn-out parts, and ensure everything is snug. This simple step prevents water wastage and helps maintain optimal water pressure, keeping everything flowing smoothly throughout the season.
Clean Your Drains
Proper drainage is crucial for a hassle-free holiday gathering. Make sure sinks, showers, and toilets are draining properly. Consider using a non-corrosive drain cleaner to clear any minor clogs. For a more comprehensive solution, schedule a professional drain cleaning service. This proactive approach helps prevent unwanted clogs and ensures that your plumbing can handle the increased usage during holiday celebrations.
Check Your Water Heater
Confirm that your water heater is working at peak efficiency before the holiday family visits. Sediment buildup in the tank can affect its efficiency. Consider flushing the tank to eliminate any accumulated sediment. This can improve the heater’s performance, ensuring a steady supply of hot water when you need it most.
Garbage Disposal Maintenance
It is crucial to keep your garbage disposal running smoothly, especially with the increase in food scraps from holiday cooking. Avoid putting items like bones, fruit pits, or large quantities of food scraps down the disposal. These can lead to clogs and put a damper on your holiday festivities. Instead, dispose of these items in the trash to keep your garbage disposal functioning optimally.
