End of Summer Plumbing Tips
Updated: Oct 17, 2022
Ah, summer. A time for leisure, for taking things slow, but the reality is that those pesky plumbing projects you've been putting off during the dog days are bound to sneak up on you once fall (or winter) arrives. So jump up out of that hammock and get those to-do list items checked off before summer ends to ensure a stress-free fall.
Fix that Clog: If you think clogged toilets are a pain in the rear now, just wait until the middle of winter when you're less likely to want to leave the house. Allowing that clog to persist in your home can be incredibly unsanitary, and requires immediate attention. Don't get caught without a working toilet!
Fix that Leak: The fall and winter see a higher risk of frozen and burst pipes that will lead to water damage, depleted savings, and plenty of other nightmares. If you're experiencing a leaky pipe or two at the moment, getting it fixed now will ensure you have durable piping for the months ahead. The peace of mind that comes from knowing you won't have to deal with a burst pipe is totally worth it.
Fix that Water Heater: Let's face it, there's nothing better than a hot shower or bath in the depths of winter. Make sure your water heater is equipped to handle the task. Hot water is not just for your cold tootsies-- you need hot water for dish-washing, laundry, and cooking, too. Get your water heater checked out now to ensure smooth sailing through winter and into spring.
It's never too early to start preparing for winter. You can trust our plumbers to help you get ready for the months ahead. Address those lingering repairs and schedule a home inspection today to prevent problems before they start.
