The other holiday plumbing disaster we mentioned on Monday is clogged toilets. With lots of company and relatives at your house, toilets can get a lot of use.
Check them now to be sure they are all flushing properly. Put out the right kind of toilet paper to avoid clogs. Supermarkets are full of thick, soft, quilted toilet papers but these may not be the best choice for heavy use. Eco friendly toilet paper isn’t as soft, but is easier on your plumbing. Of the major brands, the Scott 1000 is the toilet paper that is least likely to cause any clogging problems. It’s a thin one-ply paper. You’ll be sacrificing softness, but at least your toilets will keep working even if they’re heavily used.
If you do have a Christmas plumbing emergency, remember that Summers & Zim’s provides 24/7 service, even on holidays, and can be reached at 610-593-5129.
