August 5, 2014

It’s summertime and the living is easy. If you’re plumbing system is giving you grief, it might not be so carefree. Your pipes are working overtime to supply you with water and some much needed relief from the heat. Here are some tips that will help keep your plumbing system on track.

Get Out of the Gutter

Did you forget to clean your gutters during your spring cleaning sweep? Luckily, it’s never too late to clean up your act. Removing all debris from your gutters and drain spouts will prevent future complications with your plumbing system.

Hit the Showers

A nice cold shower is so refreshing during the dog days of summer. You may even find yourself lingering in the shower in an effort to beat the heat. This additional stress on your plumbing system could lead to low water pressure. Fortunately, an inexpensive shower head can fix this problem.

A New Flapper

With the little ones home from school, you toilet is going to experience additional usage. If your toilet isn’t flushing the way it used to, you may need to purchase a new flapper. A new flapper will prevent the water from running constantly.

The Kitchen Sink

Summer is the perfect time for a barbecue in the backyard with family and friends. As tempting as it may be, don’t toss food into the garbage disposal. Fibrous foods are notorious for causing clogs.

Check for Leaks
