Emergency plumbers always experience an increase in calls for clogged drains and plugged garbage disposals during the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. With all of the family and friends coming together to enjoy good meals and good fellowship, there is also more work in store for your plumbing.

There are a few simple things you can do to minimize plumbing problems and the need to call an emergency plumber. We will offer a few suggestions to you here that will help you keep your plumbing working great.

One of the most common problems we see is that people tend to put the wrong food or too much food down the garbage disposal. Keep in mind that a garbage disposal is not a garbage can and can not handle large volumes of scraps and other food stuff.

Never put turkey bones or skin into the garbage disposal. Also, you don’t ever want to put stringy vegetables in your disposal under any conditions. These are common sources of blockage and can be difficult to clear out of the plumbing.

Always use cold water when running your garbage disposal. Many people have the wrong idea that hot water is the best, but hot water can heat up the disposal and scraps can expand under the heat and clog the disposal. In fact, it is a good idea to run small amounts of ice down your garbage disposal once in a while. Running ice through your disposal helps to clean it and some claim that it even can sharpen the blades.

Most of the time just using some good old fashioned common sense is the best plumbing tip. If you think that something may possibly cause a problem with your plumbing, it probably will. It is not worth taking a chance when the end result could be having to call out a professional plumber to fix the problem.
