With Thanksgiving only a week away, our experienced technicians are preparing for one of the busiest times of the year for plumbing disasters. In order to avoid a plumbing disaster, we advise you to follow these simple tips so your home’s plumbing system does not spoil your Thanksgiving celebration.
1. Don’t use your disposal like a trash can!
Be mindful of what goes down the drain.
Be sure to put cooking grease in its proper place.
When grease is poured down the drain, it will eventually solidify and prohibit the flow of wastewater away from your home.
Bottle leftover grease in jars, cans, or freeze it in a plastic container and then scrape it into the garbage.
Potatoes, carrots, onions, celery, lettuce, oil, fat, bones, eggshells, coffee, and of course, grease – keep all of these items out of the disposal. They are difficult to grind, and therefore, may cause blockages in your drain.
Always keep the cold water running when the disposal is on.
Keep the disposal clean by pouring some dish soap down the drain. You may also drop a few slices of lemon peel in the disposal to keep it smelling pleasant.
2. Guard your toilets from non-flushable items (toilet paper only!)
Place a waste bin in the bathroom for any items that should not be flushed.
This will encourage your guests to throw any items in the bin, rather than flushing them.
3. Leave a plunger by each toilet
By providing a plunger, you may save your guests the embarrassment of clogging the toilet.
4. Use a shower drain hair catcher
With overnight guests, it is a good idea to add a shower drain hair catcher in every bathroom. The strainer prevents excess hair from entering your drains and causing clogs.
5. Fix any existing plumbing issues BEFORE Thanksgiving
Minor plumbing problems can quickly turn into major plumbing problems when they are left unresolved.

5-STAR GOOGLE REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS
If ever you are in need of a plumber, look no further than Zeek Plumbing. We had a water leak going from the street to the house hook up. The repair was completed in an efficient and professional manner and the people were a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend and will definitely use them again.
I noticed a small leak in our kitchen ceiling and knew it was the upstairs toilet which was very old. I called a ton of plumbers and left messages. Zeek was the 1st plumber to call me back early Monday morning and advised me on next steps so we could get the new toilet installed and taken care of. The two reps were knowledgeable, friendly, explained the issue, what they found and what they were doing. They were also super sweet to my toddler. Price for install was on par with what they had quoted. Highly recommend and will use again (hopefully not for a leak).
Found our water heater was leaking terribly on a Friday. Called 4 plumbers in the area and NOT one called me back even now 2 weeks later. I finally called Zeeks to see if they service my area. First, a person actually answered right away and was willing to help us right away. Customer Service was impeccable and gave pricing and was at my house ready to install a new hot water heater Saturday morning at 8am!! The 2 guys were friendly, knowledgeable, clean and efficient. Zeeks saved alot of stress as we were leaving for vacation on Monday morning!! Will definitely recommend and will call them first in the future!!
Zeek Plumbing installed new gas line for pool heater. I am very happy with their work and customer service. Would definitely recommend them for plumbing needs.
Zeek plumbing was quick to reply to my phone message, order the necessary part and schedule an appointment. I appreciated the swift action and courteous response.
On time, clean and very professional. The job turned out to be bigger than expected and they exceeded my expectations! Thank you!

We have a fairly new radiant heat system that was not installed by Zeek. All of a sudden we had no heat on the second floor. Rich and Ryan immediately determined that the pressure tank originally installed was not the correct one, replaced that part and had the system up and running for us. We had another issue a few days later. Rich returned immediately and took care of the problem at no cost to us.We are very happy to have found Zeek (and Rich) and we look forward to working with them in the future!
Very professional very fast and very friendly. Over all amazing service by Bill. He took the time to do the job right n make sure it was working properly without wasting time. And took the time to explain what was causing the problems. Would recommend to anyone who needs a plumber. Extremely satisfied.Update, 2 days later had issues and called them back, with in 24 hrs they came back to resolve the problem. Sent multiple guys to find where the issue was in the system. Located a bad pipe and replaced it. All is flowing good now thankyou so much for working with us to resolve this issue.
We are sooo happy with our experiences with Zeek! We had them out twice - they did a bunch of repairs for us and then when it turned out the problem was deeper than we thought they came back and stuck with it until they figured it out. They were professional, neat, safe and thorough. Huge thanks to Rich for coming out to diagnose the problem and the whole team for hanging in until it was fixed!
Responded quickly, Bill did a great job, no mess. Would definitely recommend...
We woke up to see a leak coming through our kitchen ceiling, and we feared the worst. Tim and RJ were great. They diagnosed and solved the issue quickly and gave me a very fair price. Very considerate and professional. Highly recommended these guys.
