3 Common Plumbing Problems You Need to Look Out For This Summer, Honolulu, Hawaii

Even "Mr. Fix It" knows that your pipes will not stay unclogged forever. Like most things in your home, a little wear over a long period of time will result in you having to do some home improvement. Your plumbing is a common place, and during summer months, some plumbing problems require more attention than others. Fast Rooter Plumbing will help ensure that your pipes remain free flowing and your toilets do too, with a number of plumbing services.

Being in business for more than 20 years, the experts at Fast Rooter Plumbing certainly know a thing or two about preventing plumbing problems before they happen, but in the summer time, there is a higher chance that you may face a number of common plumbing problems in your home.

To help you know what to look for, here are three common plumbing problems that many homeowners face during the summer season:

  • Clogged Garbage Disposal. Summer cookouts are fun for the family, but if you’re not careful about how you dispose of food waste, it will not be for your garbage disposal. One common problem is disposing of organic foods in your sink garbage disposal. Fruits, vegetables, corn, and other hard foods can do more harm than good, damaging the blades in your disposal unit and ultimately leading to stubborn clogs.
  • Sewer Line Backups. Summer heat also causes an increase in rain showers and thunderstorms. This is common during the summertime, and causes serious problems for your sewer pipes. If excessive rain gets through cracks, it will also cause the sewer line to back up. Overall, any cracks in your sewer line pipes will mean trouble. If you see signs such as water backup in your toilet or bathtub, seek the assistance of a professional plumber right away.
  • Clogged Toilet. Unfortunately most household toilets are prone to use during the summer, which can lead to a clogged toilet. Excessive amounts of toilet paper use, and inserting things that don’t belong in the toilet like paper towels can also lead to stubborn clogs. While most cases can be treated with a plunger, if you have a clogged toilet for more than a few days, a trained serviceman from Fast Rooter Plumbing can help.

The staff at Fast Rooter Plumbing is on call, anddedicated to providing exceptional service, all while establishing meaningful relationships with every customer in Oahu.
