Avoid Plumbing Disasters During Holidays

With long weekends and holidays coming up, the last thing anyone wants is a blocked or leaking pipe at the time of relaxation!

You invite your friends over, have a few drinks and next thing you know is that nobody can use the toiler! Surprise! In this article we cover common problems you may face and check up before you declare a proper holiday!


Bathroom Sink

Bathroom sinks are used more often than most people can remember. Brushing teeth or washing hands uses multiple chemicals which combined with other nasty ingredients can react and accumulate buildups. Especially in case of soap, scum sticks to the walls of the pipes and drainage, attracting further buildups and complications. All up you end up with a restricted flow of water and eventual blockage. 

If you see signs of blockage, contact your local plumber ASAP.

Tubs and Showers

Like your bathroom sink, your shower or tub drain is exposed to a substantial amount of substances that can cause buildup. Shampoo, conditioner, soap, hair, dirt – all of these find their way into your drain and sewer system.

Kitchen Sink

Cooking fats, oils, and grease, paper products, egg shells, bones, coffee grounds...


Perhaps the most unpleasant area of the home to experience drain problems is the toilet. Backups are not only a major inconvenience, they can lead to costly water damage and potential health hazards in your home. They typically occur when people try to flush items that don’t dissolve in water.

Plunging should be your number one go-to when it comes to a clogged toilet. If that doesn’t work, give us a call. RW Jones offers a wide range of services to help your drains, such as camera inspection.
