How to Prepare Your Plumbing for a Large Gathering

Hosting a large gathering means your plumbing system will work overtime, and this can cause excess strain on your home's plumbing system.

Thankfully, there are things you can do to ready your home plumbing and prevent plumbing disasters. Having plumbing issues when you’re hosting a large gathering can ruin your event and create a negative impression.

Here’s what you can do to prepare your plumbing for a large gathering.

Clean Your Drains Ahead of Time

You definitely don’t want your kitchen sinks or bathroom to drain slow when you are hosting guests. It’s a good idea to clean your drains before your guests arrive so that you have clear drains.

To clean your drains, open a hot water faucet and let it run for a minute, and pour ½ cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by 1 cup of vinegar. Cover the drain with a plug and wait a few minutes to allow the chemical reaction to occur, then flush the drain with hot water.

Make Sure Bathrooms Have Trash Cans

Your guests will want to dispose of things like wipes, menstrual products, and so on. If you don’t have a trash can in your bathroom, they’re more likely to throw these items into the toilet and flush them down the drain.

Be sure to place trash cans in your bathrooms so that your guests can have an easy way to dispose of various items instead of flushing them down the toilet.

Install Drain Strainers

When you have a large gathering in your home or property, be prepared for all sorts of things to potentially go down your drains. That's why it's advisable to install drain strainers in all your sinks, bathtubs, showers, and floor drains to prevent debris from getting in your drains and clogging them.

Have Your Water Heater Inspected

Your water heater will get a lot of use throughout the period you’ll be having guests, so it’s important to have your unit inspected ahead of time to ensure it’s in good working order.

The last thing you want is your guests taking cold showers because your water heater has broken down or won’t keep up with the increased demand.

Be sure to call a nearby plumber ahead of time to perform a visual inspection of your water heater and check for any potential issues. If you’re in need of water heater inspection or replacement, you can rely on Mr. Rooter Plumbing to help you out.

Fix Any Existing Plumbing Issues Before Guests Arrive

Your plumbing will get a lot of use when you’re hosting a large gathering. Therefore, it’s a good idea to have a plumber inspect your plumbing ahead of time to spot potential problems and fix them.
