Don't Let the Thanksgiving Turkey Get You Down | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Don’t toss those turkey bones in the sink or disposal. They can cause a clog or damage your plumbing.

With Halloween in the past, most peoples’ thoughts are turning to Thanksgiving, which is just a couple of weeks away. You’re already planning meals and entertainment for out-of-town family that rush to Florida for the holiday to, among other things, avoid the frigid North.

You’re figuring you can stuff everyone in the car for a trip to see the manatees. Then you can also stuff them with turkey and other goodies for Thanksgiving lunch. You’re already making your shopping list.

Planning is good. While you’re doing that, be sure to plan what you’re going to do with the food debris that comes from cooking and after dinner. If you’re not careful, you can cause yourself a massive plumbing problem by putting the wrong things down the garbage disposal or drain.

“Turkey bones aren’t garbage disposal-friendly,” says. “Sometimes turkey bones will jam between the sides of the disposal.”

Even if they don’t become jammed, they’re too difficult for the disposal to chop up.

It’s not just turkey bones that can cause plumbing problems. Don’t try to put pits and other seeds from avocados and similar foods into the disposal. You should also avoid putting stems and rinds from veggies and fruits – think pumpkins – down the disposal. Like bones, the rinds and stems are simply too hard for the disposal to handle.

Of course, no matter how careful you are, plumbing disasters can happen at any time. If they do and you can’t fix the situation by yourself, it’s time to call the trusted 24-hour plumbers at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
