5 Summer Plumbing Tips
Summer is here and that usually means vacations and trips to the beach. The last thing on your mind is your home plumbing. However, there are certain problems that can occur with your plumbing during the summer that does not happen the rest of the year. Before a serious problems occurs, here are five tips for your plumbing that can help you out this summer.
At the start of every summer, it is recommended that you contact your plumbing company to perform an annual inspection at your home. This ensures that any issues can be fixed before they become a serious problem.
If you have an in-ground sprinkler system at your home, be sure to inspect the sprinkler heads before turning them on for the summer. You will want to clean the sprinkler heads as well to ensure that they are working to their maximum efficiency. If you live in an area where your sprinklers are used more frequently, you may want to inspect them every few months. When having the lawn mowed, be sure not to run them over with the blade.
With summer, the rain follows closely behind. Be aware that the more rain you see at your home, the more likely it is for your sewer system to back up. If you notice water backing up in any of your plumbing fixtures, such as a tub or sink, call your plumbing company immediately.
Now that summer is here, less people are taking hot showers. You can turn the temperature down on your hot water heater. By doing so, not only will you save energy but you will also be saving yourself some money too!
Now that the kids are home for summer, the plumbing fixtures are being used more than they were before. Toilet clogs can easily be fixed with a plunger or a snake. Be aware of what is going down your drain in order to avoid a clogged garbage disposal. Do not attempt to get rid of produce or cooking oils via the garbage disposal.
Remember, if you are experiencing a plumbing emergency, call you local licensed professional plumber to help solve the issue for you.
