Day After Thanksgiving Busy For Plumbers in Kennewick

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- Plumbers get a lot of calls for clogged sinks and sewers. Plumbers say you don't want to be putting your chunky left overs down the garbage disposal, because it could get backed up.

We were out with a crew from Roto Rooter in Kennewick. The main sewer line at one house was plugged up.

Plumbers say it can take anywhere from a half hour to an hour to get things fixed. Roto Rooter gets just under 50% more calls the day after Thanksgiving, than any other.

"If you're working on the kitchen sink, or making dinner, make sure, you want to scrape everything off your dishes, try not to put too much down your disposal, but easier said than done, just make sure you run lots of water," said Vince Enriquez, a plumber with Roto Rooter.

Enriquez has been a plumber for 20 years and says they always have someone on call to help you. Keep in mind a call to the plumber during the holidays can cost you a little over a hundred dollars.
