How to Prevent Memorial Day Plumbing Problems

Planning a Memorial Day BBQ this weekend? Don’t forget to keep your plumbing system in mind as you prepare to celebrate with friends and family. Here are a few tips to help you prevent plumbing problems this Memorial Day!

Memorial Day Plumbing Tips:

  • Keep Your Garbage Disposal Clear – Many of your Memorial Day BBQ foods can harm your garbage disposal. Bones from BBQ ribs, corns husks, peach pits, and other fibrous materials can damage your garbage disposal.
  • Watch What You Flush – Remind guests to be careful of what they flush over the weekend. Paper towels, cotton balls, and other materials can clog your drain line. Make sure that your guests only flush toilet paper and waste.
  • Prepare for Your Getaway – If you’re going away for the three day weekend, turn off your main water valve before you leave. This will help you prevent flooding in the unfortunate event your home does experience a plumbing problem while you are away.
