Black Friday is a big day at the stores, but its also considered one the busiest days of the year for plumbers. It's a Thanksgiving problem: people pour grease or put food down the drain.
At one apartment in Pueblo a teenager poured all the grease from a 24-pound turkey into the sink. Her grandmother had to call a local plumbing company to drain the line.
"You have family in town, and it's not a good situation for the homeowner because they're under stress just because of the holiday and they next thing you know you have a plugged up drain and panic," said Raymond Baca, Owner of Professional Drain Services.
Plumbers say avoid pouring grease down drains and don't stuff too much food in your garbage disposal.
By the way, plumbers say the day after Thanksgiving they also fix quite a few clogged toilets.
