Summer: the season for kids to run wild in the yard, barbecues and family gatherings. With all the excitement and warmth in the air, the last thing on your mind is probably how your plumbing system is doing. However, summer is a make or break time of for your pipes. Here are a few tips to keep your pipes flowing this summer:
Check for Leaks: You’ll want to cool down with the warm temperatures and ever-present humidity in the air. People tend to use more water in the summer, in effort to re-hydrate and stay cool. It’s important to make sure that none of your pipes are leaking.
Get Out of the Gutter: Make sure that your yard drain spouts and roof gutters are free of debris. This will prevent future clogs and complications with your draining system.
Be Careful What You Toss: After that delicious barbecue, don’t throw just any food in your garbage disposal. Certain foods, such as vegetables, pasta, rice, bones and fruit pits, should never go in the garbage disposal. These foods could potentially clog your pipes.
