Preparing Your Plumbing for Valentine’s Day

Feb 12, 2020

Keep Your Valentine’s Day Free of a Plumbing Emergency

With Valentine’s Day just a few days away, many might be spending their days looking for the perfect gift. But here at Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air, we encourage you to take the time to make sure your plumbing is prepared for the holiday ahead. So, as you buy your annual bouquet of roses, and cook your three-course meal, here are some things (plumbing related, of course), to keep in mind:

Prepare Your Drains

Are you planning to cook a meal for your special someone, or bake cookies with the family? You don’t want to stop mid-prep to have to unclog your drain! If you notice a slow drain in your kitchen sink, or have been smelling a not-so-pleasant odor coming from your pipes, it’s time to consider getting them professionally cleaned.

When it comes to cooking and preparing your Valentine’s Day meal, don’t forget to be mindful of how you treat your drains. Grease, fats, and oils should only go in the trash — never down the sink or garbage disposal. The reason being is that when cooled, fats and oils begin to harden, blocking your pipes.

For more ways to ensure you’re not left spending your Valentine’s Day calling a plumber, read: What Can and Cannot Go Down The Drain.

Fix and Spot Leaks

Though you might finish the night with a nice soak in the bubble bath plumbing leaks can lead to a different kind of soaking that will ruin your flooring, carpets, cabinets and more., Often, a slow drip or sudden spot of moisture around a plumbing pipe might seem like a minor deal, but when not looked into or rectified quickly, it could lead to a significant home issue or possible burst. So, if you are spotting a drip or drab here and there, now’s the time to get it taken care of before you’re left with a flooded living room or kitchen.

Consider a Gift For The Whole Family

Lastly, if you are still at a loss to find the perfect gift, why not consider one that the whole family can enjoy? We’re talking Bidets and Washlets! These are toilet seats with all the features of a bidet and more. It is very easy to use; the luxury item is great for those looking to be at the top of their hygiene game. Not only does it eliminate your need for toilet paper (never have to scream for another roll again!), there’s also the option for a night light providing the perfect target which is great for toilet training as well as middle of the night visits to the bathroom.

It will be a gift the whole family can enjoy for years to come! But don’t take our word for it, see what Brett and Kyle have to say in Two Guys Talk Bidets.
