No matter how you plan on spending your summer this year, these tips to help you get through the summer months without any plumbing problems.
Plumbing Tips for Summer:
Check Your Garden Hoses – If you haven’t already, make sure to check your garden hoses and hose bibs for leaks. Even a tiny leak can lead to significant water waste, especially if you are filling a pool or washing your car.
Keep BBQ Foods Out of Your Garbage Disposal – There are many food products that shouldn’t go down your garbage disposal. Bones from ribs can damage the blades and starchy vegetables can expand and clog the drain. Be mindful of what you are putting down your kitchen sink after a cookout.
Install a Water Purifier – It’s important to stay hydrated on hot summer days! Install a water purification system to make sure that you are drinking plenty of tasty water when the temperature heats up.
Prep For Summer Getaways – Don’t forget to turn off your main water valve before you leave for a summer getaway. If your home does experience any plumbing leaks while you’re away, you won’t come home to a flood.
