Fourth of July weekend is upon us – time for BBQs, family parties, and of course, fireworks! Whether you’re hosting a neighborhood celebration or only inviting a few close friends and family to your humble abode, it’s a good idea to make sure your plumbing and appliances are ready to take on the stress from the influx of house guests.

Check over your bathroom plumbing – Clogged or running toilet? This is a recipe for disaster with additional guests in your home. While there are a few DIY fixes that can solve some problems, more complicated issues will need the help of a Patterson Plumbing & Heating professional.

Clean your drains – As mentioned in our recent blog post, cleaning your drains is important to do on a regular basis. With all the food, drinks, and dishes that will fill the sink tomorrow, it’s important to make sure it’s up to the task.

Do a basic appliance check – Visually look over all appliances, drains, fixtures, and pipes for any signs of damage. Leaks and cracks will prevent things from working properly – not to mention raise your utility bills! If anything looks out of the norm, give us a call to help identify the issue and recommend the best repairs.

Make sure your gas plumbing is working – If this isn’t working properly, you’ll have a rough time grilling. Whether you are using your indoor gas stove or outdoor kitchen area, this needs to be up to par before the party starts!

Don’t let a plumbing mishap interfere with your extended holiday weekend plans – give the experts at Patterson Plumbing & Heating a call today!  Our team has helped Pueblo homes since the fall of 1984 and know that you and your home deserve to be treated with respect.

Prevent Plumbing Problems While on Vacation

Summer vacations are on the horizon, but before you decide to pack up and head out for some relaxation – there are some things you may want to take care of at home first. The last thing you’ll want to do is come home to a plumbing disaster. So in order to avoid any kind of plumbing predicament while you’re traveling, here are some things you should do:

  • Inspect your home 1-2 weeks prior to leaving – Look at every appliance with a water supply and make sure there’s no corrosion on the water lines. Spotting a problem in advance gives you time to fix it before jetting off!
  • Turn off the main valve – This is the most effective way to ensure your home remains how you left it. With this valve off, no water should be coming into your home. This saves you from unexpected pipe leaks and bursts while you’re gone!
  • Check your water heaters – Make sure you don’t see any evidence of leaks surrounding it – if so, fix them promptly before vacation. As long as the water heater is operating properly, it’s a good idea to set the thermostat to a “vacation” setting so it won’t use energy to heat the water when you aren’t home.
  • Have someone check in! – Ask a friend, family member, or trusted neighbor to keep an eye on the house while you’re gone.

Once you take care of the above, call one of our experts at Patterson Plumbing & Heating to repair or inspect any issues you may find! This way you can spend your vacation enjoying yourself rather than being preoccupied with what could be happening at home.
