Understanding Summer Plumbing Problems

We often associate plumbing problems with the winter, where extremely low temperatures are enough to make pipes freeze. Such issues can also crop up during the summer. With water consumption at its highest this time of the year compared to other seasons, you can’t afford to encounter bad situations when it comes to your home’s plumbing. Here are some of the most common issues.

Sprinkler Problems

In time, the heads of automatic sprinklers will begin to show signs of damage. Be sure to check your water sprinklers outside your home. Consider replacing them with new ones if they are already old and broken. Otherwise, simply removing debris off of the heads will do. Maintaining them regularly is the key to keeping them in good working condition, especially during the summer.

Backups in Sewer Lines

An afternoon thunderstorm can saturate the ground with rain, causing sewers to experience problems. Having a plumbing professional install a drain plug in each drain prevents water from backing up during periods of intense rain.

Toilet Clogs

Nothing is more unsettling than a toilet that won’t flush due to a clog. It helps to have a plunger on hand in case you encounter this problem all of a sudden; you can also put up signs near the toilet informing everyone in the household as well as any visitors of what can and can’t be flushed down the pipes.

This summer, make it a point to check your plumbing for any leaks or air blocks. Take the time to check faucets, pipes under the sink, water heater, sprinklers and other plumbing components as soon as you can. You can also seek help from a pro to do it for you.
