What does Valentine's Day make you think of most? Some think it's a day of cheap chocolate, wilting flowers, and a card with a picture of a train that says, "I choo choo choose you!"
For many others, it's the perfect time to try a fancy new restaurant, maybe eat fondue and drink red wine. The more adventurous might go ice skating, or take a special trip to rock climb.
But perhaps for you, it's the moment you've decided to take your relationship to the next level and ask that special someone to move in with you. Before you do, you should take time to consider how the strain of another person in the house will affect your plumbing.
Fall in Love With Your Bathroom Plumbing!
When that special someone moves in with you, a lot of things in your life will increase. You’ll double the amount of time you spend laughing together.
You’ll have more meals together, and more walks through the neighborhood at night. And, you share so much in common, too.
You complete the other’s sentences and share inside jokes about the television shows you watch together. Sometimes you feel you even share the same dreams.
Among all these things you share in common, using the toilet rarely makes the list. Many people don’t stop to consider their bathroom plumbing when they decide to share their home. But it’s a fact that more people mean a greater chance of clogging the toilet.
Don’t Let a Shower Clog Spoil The Romance
But it doesn’t end there. Your bathroom plumbing puts up with a lot of abuse from just you. Even the most careful person occasionally puts some grease down the drain.
Even soap can combine with minerals in the water and block up your pipes. Then there’s food waste, mineral build-up, and even small objects find their way into your pipes and cause you problems.
Adding another person into your household creates a whole new set of issues. Every day in the shower, we shed dried skin, dirt, oil, and a lot of hair. All that stuff can clump together creating a pretty nasty shower clog.
