Halloween Plumbing Problem: Pumpkin Pulp Will Scare Your Disposal to Death Timely Halloween plumbing advice can save costly plumbing repairs to garbage disposals, sinks and toilets
Cincinnati, OH - Americans will scrape millions of pounds of pulp from pumpkins throughout the Halloween season and Roto-Rooter plumbers from Death Valley, California, to Salem, Massachusetts, will remove gobs of it from clogged drains before the end of the Halloween season. Local Roto-Rooter plumbers have become as common a Halloween visitor as little vampires or ghosts thanks to sticky pumpkin pulp and seeds. Plumbers know that frantic homeowners will soon be complaining about pulp-clogged garbage disposals and stopped up kitchen sink drains in the two weeks leading up to Halloween.
Roto-Rooter, America's largest provider of plumbing repair and drain cleaning services reminds jack-o'-lantern carvers that pumpkin pulp should never be put down drains or into garbage disposals. The slimy gunk is ideal for clogging sink drains.
