Thanksgiving plumbing tips!

Thanksgiving is around the corner! For all of us is a good time to be with our families and closer friends. The thanksgiving diner is one of the pick of this beautiful holiday. But from plumbing point of view is sometimes a huge nightmare. Here are some tips to count of:
1. Do not, under any circumstance, dump grease directly down your drain. Grease solidifies when it cools and will solidify on the inside of your plumbing.
2. Always collect excess grease in spare containers. Wait for it to solidify and then dispose of it.
3. Never force large amounts of food down the garbage disposal at once. Give the unit plenty of time to grind the food before adding more.
4. Don't use your garbage disposal as a trash can. Turkey bones splinter (That's why you can't feed them to your dog.) and fibrous vegetable skins can wind around the blade, causing the disposal to come to a screeching halt.
5. Always turn on the water before starting the garbage disposal, and keep it running for a minute after turning off the disposal to move the waste through the pipes. Some mix water and vinegar will help, too.
