Summer is quickly coming to a close and fall is just around the corner. With that in mind, the team here at Steve Mull Plumbing wants to share with our valued clients some very important end of the summer and pre-fall plumbing preparations that should be performed. These simple but important tasks should be completed by homeowners before the start up of the fall season ahead.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
- Check for any plumbing leaks – With the change of any season you want to take time out to check your home for any possible leaks. Doing so avoids unsuspecting water damage that could occur if plumbing leaks are identified early on. When checking for leaks be sure to inspect all sources of water in your home, including sinks, taps, toilets, and faucets, looking for any signs of moisture around the base of each. If a leak is present, you may notice a jump in your water bills. If so, be sure to reach out to the pros here at Steve Mull Plumbing.
- Clear out the drains and resolve any clogs – If you have noticed drains in your home that are slow to clear or are continuously clogged, there is a good chance you have a problem with either your home plumbing system or the sewer line leading to your home. Typically, in the winter months, primarily because of the holidays and family gatherings, your home plumbing is used a whole lot more. With that said, you want to ensure that all the drains in your home are working properly and capable of handling the additional workload. Though you may deem it appropriate to use a chemical of sorts to clear your drains, these harsh chemicals can actually cause more harm than good. Chemicals can cause a breakdown of your plumbing system over an extended period of time. Instead of relying on chemical drain cleaners, contact the plumbing professionals here at Steve Mull Plumbing and let us take care of all your drain problems. Our team wants to ensure that your fall, winter and holiday gatherings are not interrupted by clogged drains or other plumbing issues.
- Flush the water heater – It is important to drain and flush the tank on your water heater so as to protect it from any damage while extending its lifespan. At least once per year, perhaps in the fall, you should drain and flush the tank to keep the water hot, your family comfortable, and your water bills down.
