Summer Plumbing Tips

Summer rain (like we’re experiencing this week), friendly barbecues, and an influx of visitors all can have some unforeseen effects on your home’s pipes. Your plumbing system works hard in the summer and it’s important to be prepared to handle whatever issues may arise.

As we head into the last month of summer, keep these tips in mind so everything stays in top-top shape:

Check washing machine hoses – Warmer weather, more time spent outside, leads to more dirty laundry. Excess use of the washing machine can put a strain on its hoses. Look for any cracks or bulges that could result in a burst and replace them immediately.

Take care of your disposal – Many foods should NOT be put down the drain and can seriously damage your garbage disposal. Avoid tossing cornhusks into the disposal after a bbq, these can damage the blades.

Look for signs of sewer line breakage – Summer rain is pretty common, and while all of that extra water may be good for your lawn – it can quickly lead to problems for your plumbing. Rain water can infiltrate a home’s sewer line and cause a backup, not to mention rain causes the growth of plants. Tree roots are notorious for breaking into a sewer line. Check around for standing water on your property – this may be your first warning sign.

Following these tips will keep your home’s plumbing system running smoothly this summer. If you do run into a problem, don’t hesitate to contact Patterson Plumbing and Heating at (719) 544-4922. Like us on Facebook for even more plumbing tips.

When it comes to your home’s functionality and water usage – plumbing should be at the top of your list of priorities. The next time you look to begin a plumbing project, make sure it is completed on time, and on budget.

Unsure about how to get this done? Simply create a schedule to stick to, lay out all necessary costs, materials, and your estimated timeline. Then give your favorite Pueblo area plumbers a call, here at Patterson Plumbing & Heating to discuss your options:

Budget: Depending on the project you are undertaking, the cost can range significantly. Gauge an appropriate budget for prices you are willing to pay for materials, labor, whatever else may come up.

Materials: Some materials may require additional maintenance or tools – thus increasing your budget. We’ll make our recommendations and prepare pricing by the job, not by the hour, so there are no surprises.

Timeline: To make sure your project is on schedule, is to plan a timeline in advance. This way you and your plumber know the expectations for completion way before the project begins.

Keep seasons in mind: While we are available in all seasons for same day service, holiday seasons tend to be busy. Consider the excess use of plumbing systems in your home when family comes to town. Planning a timeline in advance is especially good for these reasons.

Keeping track of these important plumbing project factors will help ensure everything is completed on time and within your budget. The unexpected always has the chance of occurring so leaving some cushion room in your plan can be beneficial as well.
