While plumbing problems are usually associated with cold weather, they can also occur at warmer times of the year. Your plumbing can experience various issues in the summer due to increasing temperatures, as well as other factors.
Here are some common plumbing problems that can come up in the summer, as discussed by Oak Plumbing, your trusted plumbing repair company.
Automatic sprinkler heads can deteriorate over time. It’s recommended to get sprinkler heads fixed or replaced before summer arrives to ensure they’re working properly. Damaged sprinklers waste water and can kill your grass.
Sewer Line Backups
Sewers can get damaged during summer thunderstorms as the ground gets saturated with rain. Make sure to have your sewer lines checked before the warmer months to prevent this problem. You may also install a drain plug in the drains to prevent them from backing up during storms. You can turn to Oak Plumbing for your sewer line repair.
It’s important to teach kids toilet etiquette as well as why water shouldn’t be wasted. Place signs around the toilet to remind them of things that cannot be flushed down the toilet. Grey water in your toilet, especially after a summer storm, is an indication that you need to get in touch with your plumber for an inspection.
Stress On Washing Machines
All the activities your family does in the summer means more laundry to wash. Though it’s tempting to add more clothes to each load, keep in mind that you shouldn’t overload your washing machine. Placing excessively large loads in your washing machine can put stress on the appliance and cause it to stop working.
