Spring is coming to an end, which means summer is right around the corner. Summer is truly a favored time of year by most families. From hosting family cookouts and planting the perfect garden to watering the lawn and endless dips in the family pool, summer is a cherished time of year when so much water is used outdoors. With that said, the team of highly skilled and experienced plumbing professionals here at Steve Mull Plumbing wants to share with our clients some basic but important summer outdoor plumbing tips to follow.
Efficient Plumbing for Your Outdoor Living Space
The lineup of summer activities that we all look forward to typically require efficient plumbing for our outdoor living space. From cracked sewer lines and leaking plumbing pipes to even faulty or damaged pool filters the plumbing issues you can find yourself faced with are many. Our team wants to help you to deal with any plumbing issues that could arise in the summer months ahead by providing these useful outdoor plumbing tips.
- Swimming pools – One of the most important things about owning a pool is performing proper maintenance needed to keep the water in the pool clean and free of any dirt and debris. By performing proper pool maintenance, you are protecting the plumbing of your pool. The filter in your pool has the primary function of removing all the dirt and debris that has made its way into your pool water. Be sure to empty out the filter at least once per week of all the debris that has been filtered through. Also, be sure to analyze and inspect your pool’s plumbing annually.
- Outdoor showers – Many pool owners also have outdoor showers they use for rinsing off when getting into or out of the pool. The plumbing system linked to this shower also needs to be routinely and properly maintained and cleaned since it is also exposed to all types of outdoor elements and particles that can harm or damage your plumbing.
- Outdoor kitchens with sinks – Dirt, pollen, rainwater and all sorts of outdoor elements can make their way into the sink that is part of your outdoor kitchen and ultimately into the plumbing system itself. For this reason, it is important to clean the outdoor kitchen and sink frequently so as to preserve its health and functionality and avoid any clogs or other issues.
- Garden hoses and sprinklers – Most families tend to use their sprinklers and hoses more often in the summer months. With regard to your hoses be sure not to overwater your lawn to a point where it forms puddles beneath your feet and always turn the hose off completely. In addition, when using your hose to water your backyard garden you want to be sure that when finished you turn the hose off completely so as to save water and avoid any leaks from occurring.
