The holidays are quickly approaching, and you’re most likely preparing for friends and relatives to stop by or perhaps stay for a few days at a time. You’re doing everything you can to get your house ready, but there doesn’t seem to be enough time to check and clean everything. One aspect you simply cannot forget about is your plumbing. The demand on your water and sewer systems can increase exponentially over the holiday season, and nobody wants plumbing problems during your family celebration. At Dipple Plumbing in Greenville, we can make sure your holidays are merry and bright instead of stressful and unpleasant.
Check Your Water Heater
With friends and relatives staying for a few days, you’ll want to be sure your water heater is in good condition. You don’t want your guests to run out of hot water in the middle of a shower, and you need to be able to run the dishwasher multiple times so that your cups and plates are clean and ready for the next feast. You’ll also be doing more laundry, and if your holiday clothes aren’t clean, you might not feel like celebrating quite as much.
Check Your Faucets
This might be the first time certain guests have visited your home, and it’s possible they have the habit of not turning off faucets completely when they’re done brushing their teeth or washing their hands. Before company arrives, we can check your faucets for leaks and make sure every fixture is secure, so you won’t have to worry about dripping water running up your utility bill. It can also be beneficial to post a sticky note on the mirror to kindly remind them to turn off the cold and hot taps completely when they’re finished.
Check Your Toilets
If you have a guest bathroom that isn’t used for most of the year, you’ll want to make sure it’s functional and doesn’t keep running after it’s flushed. The chances are quite high that it will be used multiple times over the holidays, and you don’t want a clogged or constantly running toilet to ruin the festivities. Our expert plumbers can check all the toilets in your home and make sure everything is ready to go before the first holiday guest arrives.
Buy Bottled Water
Even if you have quality tap water in your home, or you have a water dispenser in the fridge, it can be smart to stock up on bottled water before guests arrive. That way, they aren’t going to the faucet every time they want a drink of water, and if something were to go wrong with your plumbing during the holidays, you’d still have clean drinking water in the house.
If there’s a plumbing emergency during your celebrations in November and December, you can count on Dipple to arrive as soon as possible, even if it’s in the middle of the night. We’ll bring the necessary tools to fix the issue, and work as quickly and diligently as possible to restore your pipes and drains to working order in no time.
We look forward to helping you!
