3 Common Plumbing Concerns in Summer, Pine Grove, California

Summer is here, which means fun activities like barbeques and swimming. However, it also comes with a new set of potential plumbing issues than the colder months offered. From filling up the pool to watering the lawn, your plumbing takes some extra wear and tear in the summer. As such, here are a few of the most common summer plumbing repairs

3 Common Summer Plumbing Repairs 

1. Basement Flooding

From unexpected summer showers to pipes that break, basement floods are a common summer plumbing problem. If you haven’t checked your sump pump yet, now is the time. If you don’t have a sump pump and have experienced basement flooding in the past, consider having one installed this summer. Make sure your gutters and downspouts are cleared out as well to prevent excess water from pooling around your foundation. 

2. Sprinkler Problems

Plumbing RepairsIf you aren’t actively looking for sprinkler heads when on the lawn, it’s easy to accidentally run them over. Broken sprinkler heads can leak and cause water bills to skyrocket. Inspect your sprinkler at the beginning of the season. Clear any leaves or debris from around them and watch for leaks. If you notice anything amiss, have a plumber check the sprinkler heads and inspect the lines. This will save you time, money, and frustration later on. 

3. Toilet Clogs 

Summer means the kids are on vacation from school and the toilets are seeing more use. This leads to an increased need for plumbing repairs due to clogs. To help buffer this, talk to your family about making a conscious effort to use less toilet paper. If you need to, put up a sign in the bathroom to remind them. Keep a plunger at the ready just in case as well.
