Every day your plumbing works fine. Holiday guests arrive and fifteen minutes later someone’s saying the garbage disposal is broken, or a toilet won’t flush.

Murphy’s Law? Kind of. Say mom and dad are living in the house alone, the plumbing is working OK for them. That’s because unseen problems have been developing over time, but with light use everything is OK. All of sudden the thundering herds of holiday guests show up and those developing problems turn into holiday plumbing disasters.

If you’re expecting a large number of holiday guests, it may be a good idea to have a professional plumber clean and inspect your drains now, before the doorbell rings.

That contraption inside the toilet that makes it flush can wear out over time. Again, mom and dad’s gentle touch does not stress it the way a five year old might when hanging on it.

Seals around shower doors may not be a problem in a lightly used bathroom, but a teenager taking a shower can easily flood the floor.

Think Chevy Chase in the movie “Christmas Vacation” and call Fullman now. Let us come fix those little problems that can become big Holiday Plumbing Disasters.
