Fun in the sun isn’t enjoyable if you’re having to deal with summer plumbing problems! While you’re getting ready for a trip to the beach, a backyard BBQ and evening parties, if you’re a homeowner in the Bay Area, you’re never worry free. There are always issues around the house, and plumbing issues are one of them. Let’s get you prepared.
Most Common Summer Plumbing Issues
Clogged Toilets & Drains
With swimming comes more showers, with kids out of school, the toilets will be working double time. Talk with your kids and explain proper use. If you’ve got teenagers discuss the things they should NEVER put down the toilet to avoid clogs. For the shower drains, it may be a good time to invest in a drain plug to catch all the hair. Keep a plunger handy, just in case they do get clogged, and give us a call if you ever need our residential plumbers anywhere in the Bay Area.
Leaks in Washing Machine Hoses
Swimming, sports, showers, only mean that your washing machine will be working overtime these summers months, to prevent washing machine hose leaks, check them often and replace them before they begin leaking in order to avoid a leak in the house. Plumbing issues can come from anywhere, you can’t stop them all, but with a little attention to detail, one can avoid a few plumbing problems from becoming bigger disasters.
