Summer is an all-time favorite season of many people. And why not? This is the time when people get to plan their vacations for beaches, swimming and sunbathing. Be it for trekking or spending time out in a forest with friends and family, the perfect time is the summer season. Even the nature becomes more beautiful with the start of summer. There’s very less stress of maintaining health because there exists no fear of cold and negligible fear of fever. Apart from these things, long midnight walks with you loved one is also a thing to love summer for.
Now summer is arriving and so are the summer plumbing problems. It’s a misconception that frozen pipes during winter are the most of plumbing issues. Summer also brings along plumbing problems, all big and small. When you’ll be enjoying that backyard party in the sun with all your special guests, your plumbing might create problems due to rough wear and tear. When your plumbing system endures extra strain, the chances of occurrence of plumbing problems increase. The solution to some problems can be achieved by the homeowner himself and some might require you to call for a plumber. So always keep your plumber’s number with you just in case!
However, some of the most common plumbing problems and their solutions are discussed below:
Solution: Know exactly what can go through your kitchen sink without blocking it. Don’t drain corn cubs, bones and fruit pits to avoid plumbing problems.
Solution: Check for any possible leaks in the hose of the washing machine. If you feel the need to replace the hose, make sure to replace it with a stainless steel one. It would cost a little more but last a lot longer than the plastic ones.
Solution: Check the heads of sprinklers of your lawns and see if they are needed to be replaced. If they’re broken, go to a local store and check for the perfect replacement. Not every head suits every sprinkler. So, get the right replacement according to the size and style.
Solution: Ask your kids to rinse off in the public showers at the beach. Also, take your bathing suit off before you jump into the shower.
We wish you great summers and we hope you enjoy the season to the fullest with sunbathing, swimming and backyard parties in the sun. Just be a little careful towards your plumbing system so that you can avoid common problems that can possibly occur in summers. Otherwise, the plumber’s number will be the rescue. Happy summer!
