Talking Love & Plumbing on Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to plan that romantic dinner date while you talk about the future. Marriage, kids, retirement together? It’s all in the future. The closer issue at hand is on everyone’s mind – moving in.
You’ve already made the preparations, make a copy of your key, opened up some space in your closet and drawers, and added some touches of style. But chances are you didn’t think about every possible outcome. We don’t mean them saying no!
We mean the plumbing system in your place, and whether or not it can keep up with a party of two instead of a solo experience. So what now? Read on to learn a little more about how you can prepare and keep your plumbing in the best working order.
Bathroom Plumbing: Double Duty Impacts
When it’s just you on your own, chances are your plumbing has no issues handling the daily routine. Over time your plumbing system can get accustomed to the amount of flushing, showering, and dishwashing you do on a daily basis.
But what happens when you add two to the mix? It’s common for new couples to deal with issues like toilet clogs, slow drainage, and even sewage issues. So how do you fight back?
Easy enough you set some ground rules. Always be wary of flushing larger items down the drain – especially ones that aren’t explicitly marked flushable. And even then, you should be on the lookout if your home is on the older side.
The Ominous Shower Clog
Here’s where things get really complicated. Outside of the toilet, your shower is also getting that double duty – especially if your loved one has long hair. Combine long hair, soap, shampoo, and older drains and you’re looking at the perfect storm for a clog.
While some clogs can easily be pulled from the top of the drain, some issues run much deeper. If you’re not a trained plumber, it could be a hassle trying to remove them on your own.
An easy way to protect your place is with a screen over the drain. You can find them at your local store and use them to catch any excess hair before it makes its way down the drain. Just like you planned to ask them to move in – you need to plan to keep them there, happy with your plumbing.
