Septic and pipe cleaners expensive on holidays, preventative treatment advised
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/29/2012 -- For some Americans, holiday preparations include more than simply setting tables and garnishing entrees. For some, holiday preparations include plumbing. Hillbilly Pumping & Hauling has crews that are busy throughout the holiday season, emptying septic tanks and snaking pipes.
Patty Wheeler of Joplin, and many other customers, want to avoid backups in their systems, and are happy to have such a service available during the holidays. Wheeler said she experienced a Thanksgiving-Day septic backup and it was nothing to be thankful for. She noted it also cost a lot more when the company had to come out of a holiday, and so taking preventive steps was preferable.
"About 10 or so years ago over Thanksgiving we had our daughters-in-laws come and that was an embarrassing thing for that all to come up through the basement - it just ruins your Thanksgiving," says Wheeler. "We had noticed an odor coming up from the basement. My husband replaced the o ring and thought with the holiday coming and guest coming we just really didn't want a backup in the midst of all our holiday preparation and fun."
Plumbing companies are sure to receive more calls after family’s visit.
Extra bathroom and shower use can cause septic tanks to overflow, and many discard the wrong articles down the garbage disposal as well, which clogs pipes.
"A few years ago we took a soup bone out of a toilet because someone dumped a pot of beans in there that they were done with - forgot about the bone in the bottom," says Larry Wald of Hillbilly Pumping & Hauling.
A couple of the worst offenders are celery and rice.
"It's like pure starch, it gums up and it becomes a mess if it just doesn't have enough water flow behind it," says Wald. "Celery, you would think it would chop it right up, but celery is so stringy when it gets into the pipes it starts hanging up and acting like a net and it tends to stop up pipes real bad."
