Avoid Arroyo Grande plumbing problems during the most wonderful time of the year – winter! Griffin Plumbing is here to help you plan ahead with preventative maintenance appointments.

Party Time

Are you hosting family and friends at your place? Party time sure can be fun, but it can also be tough on your plumbing from the garbage disposal to guest bathrooms. Book a preventative maintenance appointment with the best plumbers in Arroyo Grande to avoid a hassle when you have a houseful.

Extra cooking means your garbage disposal and dishwasher will be working overtime. Be mindful not let grease or cooking oils go down the garbage disposal – they can clog and cause serious damage. So can carrots, celery, banana peel, eggshell, and poultry skin. When using the garbage disposal, remember to run cool water down the drain for 10-20 seconds before and after. This helps flush waste down the main line.

When it comes to running the dishwasher or washing machine, nighttime is best. That’s because it is considered an ‘off time’ and will conserve hot water (and water pressure!) for all your guests.

Overnight guests equal more showering and toilet flushes than normal too. Prevent a pesky plumbing problem by spacing out each shower by at least 10 minutes.

Holiday Travel

Visiting loved ones this year? Don’t forget – if you’re going to be away from home for any length of time, it’s a smart idea to turn off your water supply. You can also put your mind at ease by scheduling a plumbing maintenance appointment with the best plumbers in Arroyo Grande before you hit the road (or fly the friendly skies).
