Need a Plumber for Valentine’s Day?
Valentine’s Day is the official day for romance and big romantic gestures. If you’ve been seeing someone for a while and wanted to make things official, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to do it! It’s also the perfect opportunity to take your relationship to the next level.
Are you ready to start talking about moving in together? While it may be an exciting thought, moving in with that person you want to spend your life with, this decision may affect areas of your life you hadn’t considered before.
We know plumbing is not usually what most people think of when they think Valentine’s Day. We also know, however, that your plumbing is something you need to think about if you are inviting someone to live with you.
How Does Your Relationship Affect Your Bathroom?
We hate to be the ones to break it to you, but your significant other uses the toilet, and, if they’re going to be living with you, they’ll be using your toilet. This means the likelihood of a clog is increased with the wear and tear.
Make sure that you are both practicing proper toilet maintenance- only put toilet paper and human waste in your toilet, clean the toilet bowl regularly, and only use a plunger to unclog it.
Frequent Shower Clogs
Another aspect of your bathroom plumbing you should consider is your shower drains. As with the toilet, your significant other will also need to shower, we hope, which means you’ll have to share that as well.
Aside from using more water, double the showers also mean double the strain on your shower drain pipes, and (again) double the chances of a clog there. How?
Well, two people using a shower means twice as much hair, soap, shampoo and conditioner, and even dead skin particles, that can all collect in your drain pipes and cause a clog in need of drain cleaning. A good way to combat this is to install a drain screen and remove hair that collects there.
