Don’t Let your Plumbing System Scare you This Season!
Avoid Costly Repairs & Spooky Inconveniences this Halloween in Decatur, Madison, Huntsville, Hartselle, Athens and Surrounding Areas
It’s the spookiest time of the year! That’s right! Halloween is here along with scary costumes, horror movies, trick or treating haunted houses and pumpkin carving. At Lamco Plumbing, we aren’t trying to scare you… but this is the perfect time of the year for scary plumbing problems in your home if you aren’t careful. We wanted to take a few minutes to share with your some tips and facts that we have learned over the years as local plumbing contractors so you can be prepared for anything that comes your way. From messy drain cleaning terrors to banging pipes to toilets that flush themselves, your plumbing system may stay right on theme with Halloween this fall!
Avoid a Bright Orange Drain Cleaning Disaster:
Carving pumpkins is a very popular pastime around Halloween but if you’re not careful, you could be paying a ton to fix the damage that pumpkin pulp and seeds can do to your plumbing system! When you carve pumpkins this season, make sure you dispose of the pumpkin insides in your garbage and NOT in your garbage disposal, drains or toilets. Pulp from a pumpkin can get caught on your disposer blades and cause malfunctioning. And it can cause messy back ups in your pipes as well! Keep fibrous, stringy foods, oils and other materials out of your garbage disposer today and you won’t need to worry about drain cleaning problems this season!
Phantom Toilet Flushing:
It’s 11:30 PM and you’re home alone for the evening when you hear your toilet flush… Ghosts? Zombies? Goblins? It’s safe to say I think you’re in the clear. Sometimes when you have a leaky toilet phantom flushing can occur in your home. Your toilet isn’t actually flushing, it just sounds like it is. What is really happening is your toilet is topping off water in your toilet tank periodically to replace the water that it is losing. If you thought you had house guests from the other side… you’re in the clear! If you have phantom flushing in your home you most likely have a leaky toilet and over time this can be very wasteful. For all of your plumbing fixture repairs, Call Lamco Plumbing and we can make sure that you have no more mysterious sounds coming from your bathroom today!
