Peek-a-Loo! Don't let your plumbing scare you this Halloween.
Plumbing problems can be a nightmare, so follow these simple tips and you can enjoy a clog-free Halloween!
1. Toilets are for toilet paper ONLY!
Flushing anything other than toilet paper (e.g., wet wipes, tampons, wrappers, paper towels, dental floss, etc.) can lead to serious clogs in your sewer.
2. Noisy pipes should be looked at by a plumber.
Ticking, knocking or gurgling noises coming from your pipes could be a sign of a water pressure issue, clog, or an phenomenon called water hammer. Water hammer occurs when a surge of water in your pipes is suddenly stopped causing the water to slam into your shut off valve. Aside from sounding scary, it can damage joints and the walls of your pipes. Your best bet would be to contact your plumber if you are concerned about any noises coming from water pipes.
3. Pumpkin guts belong in the trash.
Once your pumpkins are cleaned and ready for carving, you're left with stringy, slimy, and seedy pumpkin guts. Don't fall into temptation and flush them down the toilet or pour them down the garbage disposal. These innards need to be disposed of properly in the garbage otherwise you could be left with sewage blockages or a clogged disposal.
