Tips for a Plumbing Problem-Free Holiday Gathering

The holidays are a time for joy and celebration, but they can also be a time for plumbing problems. With all of the extra guests and activities, it’s no wonder that our plumbing systems can take a beating. But don’t worry, with a little planning and preparation, you can avoid plumbing problems and have a stress-free holiday season.

Here are a few tips to help you avoid plumbing problems during the holidays 


Avoid putting grease, oil, fat, and other substances down the drain, as these can clog the pipes & lead to leaks.

Garbage Disposal

If you have a garbage disposal, be sure to run cold water while it is running. This will help to prevent the disposal from jamming and overflowing.


Only flush toilet paper and waste down the toilet. Flushing other items, such as wipes, diapers, and feminine hygiene products, can clog your pipes.

If you do experience a plumbing problem during the holidays, don’t panic. Call Team Rooter Plumbing right away. We are open 24/7, 365 days a year, and we can help you resolve the problem quickly and efficiently.

Here are some additional tips for preventing plumbing problems during your holiday gathering:

  • Avoid using too much water at one time. 
    If you are running multiple appliances or fixtures at the same time, this can put a strain on your plumbing system and lead to problems.
  • If you are having a lot of guests, make sure to stagger their use of the bathroom and other plumbing fixtures. 
    This will help to prevent clogs and other problems from occurring.
  • Have a plunger and other plumbing tools on hand in case of an emergency. 
    This will help you to quickly resolve any minor problems that may occur.

Team Rooter is an honest company to do business! They take care the job warranty without a question. Three years ago they repaired my sewer line with trenchless sewer pipe replacement. Last weekend the sewer backup to bathroom again. Called their customer service, unfortunately all the serviceman are out at the time, I got a local plumber came right way to clean out the blockage. Next day called Team Rooter reported the problem, a supervisor discuss the situation with me by phone and offered sending a technician to site to investigate. Mr. James Craig came with Cam Video the next day found tree roots break into pipe through a coupler. He immediately authorized a repair job: to break the concrete, dig 3 ft down to reach and replace the broken pipe coupler. Two men crew showed up next day completed the job which could value of thousands dollars but all under warranty. A special thanks to Mr. James Craig, his is knowledgeable and friendly. His kindly smile really comforts my anxiety. I would highly recommend Team Rooter for any plumber problem because rest assure they will come back to fulfill their promise.

Team Rooter was very professional, nice, clean and on time. They were able to find and clear out the tree branches that were growing into our pipes and up through our toilet. I would use them again if necessary

Ricardo was extremely knowledgeable and skilled. He was respectful and listened carefully to questions and concerns. He answered questions thoroughly and explained safety guidelines. The price for work was reasonable. There was no concern about being tricked or cheated. Quality of work is thorough and highly professional. This company provided me with peace of mind for so many different reasons. Stuff happens. I will call them first in the future. So glad I found them.

We had a slow drain issue with our kitchen sink. Had some difficulties and complication when trying to fix it. Hector came in less than one hr after the call, and quickly point out the issue and fixed everything in a clean, fast and professional manner. Price was very reasonable. Would highly recommend.
