Why Black Friday Is The Busiest Day For Valley Plumbing Company

(No, It’s Not The Toilet)


(PHOENIX)– Store clerks aren’t the only ones working hard on Black Friday. The certified technicians at Donley Service Center will be extra busy. Service calls to the family-owned company can be 50 percent higher than a typical Friday. And, if you think toilets are the biggest problem, think again.

“The number one reason people call is because of clogged drains,” says Mike Donley. “People pour things down they shouldn’t and cram too much into the garbage disposal.”

If you’re having guests over Thanksgiving weekend you may want to have your drains and plumbing checked before the holiday. Often, drains are already partially clogged and it goes unnoticed until guests arrive and the system becomes overwhelmed.

How to Avoid a Holiday Headache:

Think before you toss

·       Don’t treat your disposal like a trash can. Instead, throw leftovers in garbage or compost pile.

·       Avoid putting starchy, stringy and fibrous waste into the disposal. Potato peels, celery and turkey skin don’t sufficiently break down.

Feed the disposal slowly

·       Turn it on before you toss in scraps. And, do it gradually to avoid overloading the disposal.

Keep water running

·       Run water both during and after using your disposal.

·       If you think there’s a problem with your disposal avoid using the dishwasher because it discharges into the disposal.

Watch the grease

·       Avoid pouring cooking oil and fat down the drain.

·       Use a paper towel to wipe off greasy pans before placing them in sink.

Bathroom etiquette

·       Never flush food down the toilet.

·       Never flush cotton balls and swabs because they don’t dissolve.

·       Waiting 10-15 minutes between showers can give slow drains time to do their jobs.
