Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and after that, Christmas, New Years, and all the rest. For some, this means a time of relaxation and pleasant family reunions. For others, it means added stress with some of that stress coming from unpleasant family reunions. No matter how you view the holidays, it’s important to be aware of the common plumbing problems that could turn your holiday season into a big pit of despair.

Drain clogs. The stuff of nightmares. Especially when you’re hosting a big family gathering during the holidays. Let’s face it. The more people are using the bathroom, kitchen, and shower, the higher the chance that a horrible clog will happen. You need to be prepared for this fairly typical problem. If you’re hosting a big holiday event or you plan to have some family staying at your place for the holidays, then get yourself some strainers and stoppers for the drains. It will also help to tell your family members to throw garbage in the garbage, and not down the drain. These small measures will go a long way in preventing awful drain clogs. The last thing you want right in the middle of a big holiday is a completely clogged drain line.

The toilet won’t stop running. Another nightmare when it happens. If you’re the unlucky one to discover that the toilet water won’t stop running, then check the flapper in the tank. The flapper is the piece that is attached to the chain that allows water to flow from the tank into the bowl. It’s possible that you simply need to adjust the flapper for the water to stop running and for the toilet to work properly.
