Over the holiday, we at Drain Genie Plumbing Services get a lot of emergency calls. Mostly because of the extra usage from guests that come and stay, but a lot of the Orlando plumbing problems come from misuse of the system. First, when cooking don’t use your garbage disposal as a trash compactor. Garbage disposals are only meant to take small amounts of waste, and no fibrous and minimal starch such as potato peels. Next, if you are on a septic system make sure you have it serviced before your company comes. This will prevent embarrassing sewage back ups. If you are going away on vacation make sure you shut your water off to your home and shut off the power to your water heater. If you can’t find your main water shut off call an Orlando plumber to help you locate it. If there is none, we suggest installing a shut off valve. The cost to install a valve is way less than damage from a flood. Many plumbing disasters can be prevented with maintenance to your plumbing system. The problem is most people don’t service there plumbing, only when there is a plumbing issue, and that usually results in emergency plumbing repairs that can cost more for after hours work. If you need a plumber this holiday season give us a call at 407-490-1230.
