The holiday season is here, and it’s time to get ready to accommodate guests in your San Marcos, Texas, home. Whether you’re entertaining family or friends, making sure your plumbing up to par is important to help you enjoy the season. Before your guests get into town, make sure you’ve addressed these four plumbing problems:

Dripping Faucets

A dripping faucet might seem like a minor issue. But dripping faucets can lead to higher water bills and also water damage to surrounding areas. When you have guests in your home, they’ll use the faucets more often. As a result, they can exacerbate the problem without knowing it.

Slow Drains

A slow drain can lead to water damage and also be downright embarrassing. Your guests will take showers and help clean the kitchen. If there are blockages, the increase in water usage can worsen clogs. It can also lead to poor smells and bad indoor air quality from the stagnant water.

Backed-up Toilets

This can lead to one of the most embarrassing problems for and your guests. While clogging is normal and can happen even when there wasn’t a previous problem, a toilet that’s already giving you difficulties is likely to clog due to an increased amount of toilet paper. This can be embarrassing for your guests to ask for help with. Therefore, it’s best to address it before they arrive. Also, keep a plunger in the bathroom.

Low Water Pressure

If your shower heads trickle instead of gush, you may have a problem with low water pressure. This can make showering awkward and take longer for your guests. This lack of pressure could be due to problems in the pipes. It can also be as simple as an old or clogged shower head.
