The holidays are a great time to spend with family and friends, even if it can be stressful and often hectic. With all the great memories that are made, some negative consequences can occur. Your plumbing takes a beating during the holidays. More people means more uses of your plumbing, which can cause several different plumbing problems to arise. Below, C4 Plumbing will discuss some issues that may stem from the holiday traffic.

Slow Drains

Many people have family and friends over for dinners. With many people in your home, it is no surprise that your drains may become slow draining. A lot of people will put things down garbage disposals and drains that shouldn’t be there. The main culprit of a clogged drain is grease. It is never a good idea to put grease down your disposal or drain. You should also avoid rice, potatoes, and other dense foods.

Clogged Toilets
