Although our beloved Denver Broncos are done for the season, it is safe to assume that many of us will continue to follow football playoffs into the Super Bowl. With the Super Bowl being the second largest day for food consumption besides Thanksgiving, Blue Mountain Plumbing would like to remind you to consider the effects on your garbage disposals and plumbing.
We all may be familiar with the myth that water systems of large American cities are on the verge of collapsing across the country during halftime, but fortunately for us; this is simply not true. It is true, however, that the toilet is flushed more times during the Super Bowl halftime than at any time during the year. Astonishingly, the amount of water that is flushed on average during halftime is equivalent to seven minutes of water flowing over Niagara Falls! This may be partially due to the 50 million cases of beer Super Bowl viewers are estimated to consume during the game.Common issues for plumbing emergencies during large gatherings include toilet backups, sewer backups, clogged sinks, and clogged garbage disposals. So if you are planning on hosting or attending a Super Bowl party, it is important to keep this in mind. The staff of Blue Mountain Plumbing and HVAC in the Metro Denver area is happy to assist you with any plumbing or drain issues in order for your halftime show to run smoothly.
