  • We Honor Those Who Gave Their Lives for Our Freedom

    While we are very thankful for pools opening this weekend in Frederick County, we’re even more thankful for the real reason for Memorial Day weekend: to honor the brave men and women who died while fighting for our freedom. We will be forever grateful for their sacrifice and pray for peace for their families.

    There are quite a few fun events happening in Washington D.C. and surrounding areas this weekend, but if you’re planning to host guests at home, plumbing problems are likely to happen. It’s a good idea to brush up on tips to help you prevent issues with your garbage disposal, sinks and toilets.

    Have a Safe Memorial Day from Putman Plumbing!

    If you need any plumbing help for your Frederick County home after the weekend, be sure to give us a call.

    Happy Easter from Putman Plumbing!

    It looks like we’ll have beautiful weather for Easter this year in Frederick County. We hope you enjoy time with family while celebrating Jesus’ resurrection!

    If you want to prevent having to call a plumber while hosting guests this year, make sure you know what should and shouldn’t go down the sink and garbage disposal. As a preventative, pour a cup of baking soda followed by a cup of white vinegar into each drain to make a foam formula that will eat away at any buildup inside your drains.

    Egg Shells

    Membranes inside of egg shells can form a web that captures other foods and liquids that go into your drain pipe. This can cause clogs, not to mention that the membrane lining can also wrap around the garbage disposal’s shredder and cause it to malfunction.

    Any Bones

    Bones are too hard for the garbage disposal to grind, so whether you’re having ham or turkey for Easter, don’t throw them in the garbage disposal. They will either break the blades or splinter and get lodged in your drain pipe.


    Grease that bakes out of the ham should never be poured down the drain since it will cling to the pipe as it thickens. Instead, pour oil or grease into a coffee can or another dish and throw it away after it hardens.

    Stringy Veggies

    Celery and asparagus strings will wrap around the blades of the garbage disposal and slow it down, so throw leftovers in the trash.

    Foods that Swell

    Just as pasta and rice swell up in your stomach, they’ll do that in the drain pipe. So to avoid a clog, scrape them into the trash.

    Call Putman Plumbing if You Need Easter Plumbing Help in Middletown

    Happy Easter from our family to yours. We’re always here to help if you have any questions about your plumbing. Just give us a call!



    How to Avoid Plumbing Problems at Your Holiday Party

    You may think cookies, candy, gifts and decorations are the most important parts of hosting a successful holiday party, but there’s something your guests will remember even more if it goes wrong — your plumbing! To avoid a disaster from happening while having a festive time with friends and family, follow these tips!

    Point Guests to Multiple Bathrooms

    You don’t want guests to have to wait in line to use the toilet, so let them know which bathrooms are available for use. It might mean cleaning the kids’ toilets before your party, but it will also prevent clogs that could happen from too many people using your hall bathroom.

    Keep a Trash Can Near the Toilet

    Hopefully most guests know what can be flushed and what can’t, but providing a trash can will be a good reminder. If you’re not sure about the toilet knowledge of some of your guests, place a sign that lists things NOT to flush like feminine products, baby wipes, and paper towels.

    Provide a Plunger in Plain Sight

    You don’t want guests to be embarrassed if they happen to cause an overflow. Keeping a plunger next to the toilet will ensure that guests can catch a clog before it floods the bathroom.

    Keep an Eye on the Garbage Disposal

    Hopefully you know by now not to put grease, oil, or hard items like bones in your garbage disposal. You never know if guests will try to grind the wrong foods, so it’s best to show them to the trash can when they’re finished eating.

    If You Have a Plumbing Problem in Your Middletown Home, Call Putman!

    We hope your party goes great and all your guests have a wonderful time. Just in case you have a clogged toilet, a broken garbage disposal, or any other plumbing issue, our licensed plumbers are only a phone call away. Happy Holidays!



    Happy Thanksgiving!

    We’re thankful for all our friends, family and customers who keep Putman Plumbing in business year after year. We wish you and yours a happy Thanksgiving filled with delicious food, warm memories and lots of laughs.

    To avoid plumbing problems while you have a house full of guests, follow these tips!

    Make Sure to Support Small Business Saturday!

    Please support your local Middletown and Frederick County businesses this Saturday. They are the ones who keep our wonderful little community thriving!

    Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Putman Plumbing! If you have any plumbing problems, give us a call.

    Fix Plumbing Problems Before Thanksgiving Guests Arrive

    If you have family and friends coming to stay in your Frederick County home this month, the last thing you’ll want to deal with is a messy plumbing problem while they’re there. Take some steps now to ensure your guests have a comfortable Thanksgiving visit.

    Here are a few things you might want to have a plumber check before guests arrive.

    Do You Have Enough Hot Water?

    If your water turn cold when the third person in your family takes a shower, imagine what will happen when four extra people are there.  You may have sediment sitting in the bottom of your hot water heater that prevents the water from heating as it should, so it’s a good idea to have a Middletown plumber drain it before guess arrive. If your hot water heater is 10 years or older, you may consider having a new one installed before the holidays. If you have guests stay with you frequently throughout the year, think about getting a bigger hot water heater.

    Are the Toilets Flushing Well?

    Do you have to flush twice sometimes to get everything down? There may be a clog somewhere in your plumbing pipes, which will become backed up even more with multiple guests using the toilet — and even lead to a messy overflow. Have a plumber check for clogs or broken parts, and then encourage your family not to use flushable wipes.  They could be the reason your pipes are getting clogged.

    Is the Faucet Dripping?

    A slow drip can already cause your water bill to add up, so when you add hand-washing, showering, and  flushing when guests are there, your bill will go through the roof. Have a plumber fix the leak now so you can keep extra money in the bank for holiday gift giving.

    Is Water Taking Forever to Drain in the Kitchen Sink?

    When you’re cooking for a crowd and rinsing dishes, you won’t want a clogged kitchen drain. Liquids should flow straight through when you pour them down the drain, so if it’s taking a few minutes or even seconds to disappear, call a plumber to clear the clog.

    Is the Garbage Disposal Working?

    If you smell something rotten in the garbage disposal or don’t hear the blades turning when you turn it on, make sure to call a Frederick County plumber. You’ll need to use a working garbage disposal for Thanksgiving and the rest of the weekend!

    Putman Plumbing is Your Trusted Plumbing Company for Holiday Plumbing Problems

    We want every Frederick County resident to enjoy this season with family and friends. If you have a plumbing problem, give us a call and we’ll take care of it right away!

    Why Pumpkins Don’t Go in the Garbage Disposal

    Halloween is this Wednesday, and hopefully you’ve already enjoyed some of the fun and scary things going on around Frederick County. If you haven’t had your fill of Halloween fun, don’t worry. There are still some events in the area going on this week and next weekend.

    Gaver Farm Field Trip on October 31. Meet up with other homeschooling families at this Mt. Airy Farm, where kids can wear their costumes, pick pumpkins, take a hayride, run through a corn maze and play on playgrounds!

    Screamland Farms  on November 2 and 3. This haunted attraction in Frederick will still be open next weekend, so check it out to experience the Hayride of Horrors and zombie paintball!

    SuperHero Fall Kidfest in Leesburg on November 3rd offers a chance for your little ones to wear their costumes again and eat some yummy BBQ.

    Carving Pumpkins This Week? Read This First!

    If your family plans to carve pumpkins this week or you’ll be making pumpkin pie in the near future, it’s important that you dispose of scraps properly. No parts of a pumpkin should ever go in the drain or garbage disposal! Stringy guts can clog drains and wrap around the blade causing it to stop, while pumpkin rinds and seeds are too hard for the blade to cut through, so they can damage the disposal.

    Avoid a clogged sink and broken garbage disposal by scooping guts and seeds into a bowl or newspaper, then throwing the scraps into the trash can or a compost pile.

    Happy Halloween from All of Us at Putman Plumbing!

    We hope you have a safe and fun Halloween. Plumbing problems can be scary, so if you need any plumbing help from a trusted plumber in Middletown this week or any time, give us a call!

    Scary Plumbing Problems You Shouldn’t Ignore

    Spooky Halloween fun in Frederick County is fun, but scary plumbing problems are not! If you notice any of these issues now or any time in the future, be sure to give Putman Plumbing a call.

    You Hear Water in Pipes But No One’s Using the Water

    No, there’s not a ghost in your shower. What this could actually mean is that you have a plumbing leak somewhere. If you’re only hearing water constantly running in the toilet, you may simply need to repair a damaged flapper, but if you hear it somewhere else in the house, call your Middletown plumber.

    You Hear a Squeal or Scream When You Turn the Water On

    A super scary sound might be terrifying, but there are no demons in your pipes. Pipes may squeal when water from a large pipe flows into a smaller pipe, so your plumber will either need to adjust the pressure valve or replace a worn washer or valve.

    You Notice a Loud Bang When You Turn the Water Off

    This is called water hammer, and it happens when water pressure changes and loose pipes bang into walls. This could lead to broken pipes or appliances, so it’s important that a licensed Frederick County plumber fix it.

    There’s a Gurgling Monster in the Toilet

    This really could be a scary problem, but not one that involves a scary creature. You could have backed up sewer lines or lines that have cracks, and when air gets through they gurgle. Make sure to call Putman Plumbing right away to clear up this problem.

    You Smell Something Horrifying

    If you’ve lost your appetite for Reese’s peanut butter pumpkins because you can’t get past the rotten egg odor in your home, it’s time to call us. There could be a broken vent or sewer pipe under your house, and besides the terrible smell it causes, it could also wreak havoc on your foundation.

    Have a Fun Halloween Season in Frederick County

    We hope you enjoy some spooky good times in Middletown and surrounding cities. If you need any help with plumbing problems, give us a call.



    School’s Out for Summer! Here’s How to Avoid Plumbing Problems While the Kids are Home

    Now that Frederick County schools are out, the kids are playing in sprinklers, eating more food at home and creating a lot more laundry for mom and dad. These are all par for the course for summer, but they’re also things that can cause potential plumbing problems. Find out how to prevent some of the plumbing problems that can happen when the kids are home, and if you can’t prevent them, call us!

    High Water Bills

    Filling up pools and washing the car with the hose are all classic summer activities. But if you don’t keep an eye on how long the outside water has been on, it can really drive up your water bill. Remind the kids not to splash too much water out of the pool, and set a timer when they’re playing in the sprinkler. If your teenagers are washing their cars with the hose, teach them to turn the water off while they’re soaping up the car.

    Sink Clogs and Garbage Disposal Problems

    Your kitchen sink will take a beating with more cereal being poured down the drain and scraps being grinded in the garbage disposal. Remind your kids not to pour food down the drain since it can cause clogs, and that they shouldn’t put hard things like apple cores, orange peels, or chicken bones down the garbage disposal. In fact to play it safe and avoid plumbing problems while young kids are home, you might want to tell them to put all food scraps in the trash.

    Non-Flushable Items in the Toilet

    Clogged toilets are a big concern in summer just because everyone is flushing the toilet all day. It’s important for kids to know how much toilet paper is appropriate to use, so tell them they only need 6 squares or whatever you decide is appropriate. And while flushable wipes are very popular these days, they don’t dissolve in water like regular toilet paper so make sure to tell everyone not to flush more than one at a time since they can clog the toilet. It’s also a good idea to remind girls not to flush any feminine products.

    Washing Machine Problems

    With all the baseball games and time spent at the beach or in the sandbox, a lot of dirt and sand will be going through the washing machine this summer. To avoid the washing machine from breaking or leaking, rinse as much debris as possible out first, and also check pockets for gum, candy, and other sticky stuff. This is not a good time of year to have to run to the laundromat!

    Call Putman Plumbing if You Have Any Summer Plumbing Problems!

    Enjoy your extra time with the kids this summer, and if you do have any problems, let us know!
