One of the best ways to kick off the summer is with a salute and a toast to our brave service men and women. Whether you’re planning the ultimate BBQ or think you’d like to get out of town for the weekend, we have a couple quick tips that’ll help you celebrate our military in peace.
Let’s get right to it, so you can fire up that grill or load up that suitcase!
Watch Your Drains
This Memorial Day Weekend, be mindful of what you (and your helpful kitchen guests) put down the drain. The moment you catch someone sticking a full-blown corn on the cob down the garbage disposal, kindly relieve them of their kitchen clean-up duties.
Some of the more obvious things to avoid are bones and fruit pits from that fabulous fruit salad you made. Other less obvious culprits include potato peels and coffee grinds. They seem benign, but they actually pile up over time into a sludgy, drain-clogging mess.
If you do end up with a clogged garbage disposal, and you need some help fixing it, our plumbers in Las Vegas are always ready, even on holidays, to spring into action to solve your plumbing problems.
But in the meantime, make sure to check out our DIY plumbing video on how to unclog a garbage disposal.
Run Your Sprinkler System
Make sure you run your sprinkler system before the big bash. It’s been turned off for quite some time now and you want to ensure there aren’t any surprise cracks and leaks.
In truth, when summer hits, it’s inevitable that we’re going to use more water. From showers to sprinklers, a hot summer day without water is a day without relief. Check out our summertime tips to help you stay refreshed all season long.
Consider Your Water Valve
If you’re heading out of town for Memorial Day, consider turning off your water valve before you hit the road. This is simply an extra precaution to help you avoid any unexpected leaks. Often times, homeowners will come home from a mini-vacation, only to find their back yard has been flooded by a broken sprinkler, or part of their house is flooded due to a broken pipe. Even if it’s only for three days, we suggest shutting off your water supply to the house and yard. An unattended leak can cause considerable damage in just a few hours, let alone days.
There are also a few other things you should do prior to a vacation. So, before you head out of town, run through our vacation plumbing checklist so you can get enjoy your getaway in peace.
