Protect your plumbing this Brown Friday

You’ve heard of Black Friday, where hordes of shoppers descend on stores to snag the best deals of the year. But there’s another Friday that fewer talk about, but it’s effects can be seen everywhere, Brown Friday. The day after thanksgiving where plumbers across the nation are at their busiest fixing plumbing systems that have cracked under the pressure of Thanksgiving. There are lots of reasons why plumbing systems are under increased pressure during thanksgiving. Friends and relatives are in town, more food is being disposed of and, obviously, toilets are in high demand. The day after Thanksgiving is the busiest of the year for plumber, even more so then Christmas. Here are some way you can avoid falling victim to Brown Friday:

Spread out shower time: It’s not just the food and toilet use that strains a plumbing system, if you have a large number of people staying the night your showers might also take a beating. Ask guests to spread out their showers by 10-15 minutes, this will allow your drainage system time to do it’s job and make way for the next shower.

Don’t throw everything in the disposal: Instead, scrape leftover food from plates, pots, and other dish ware into the trash. Lots of food disposal can mean you miss the bits of food, like turkey bones and other hard scraps, that can clog and damage a disposal unit.

Put a plunger and waste basket in all your bathrooms: More of a common courtesy than anything else, no one wants to make the walk to the other bathroom with the plunger in it explaining that they clogged the toilet.

Don’t flush wet wipes and cotton balls down the toilet: Materials like these can clog up toilets fast and be hard to remove.
