Skip to content…

Ah, Summertime. I bet your plumbing is the last thing on your mind during this season; after all, it is time you have been waiting to relax, enjoy the weather, and soak up all of the festivities with your friends and family. Unfortunately, with all of these festivities comes a workload on your plumbing system. Therefore, it is essential to know the preventatives to the problems that can arise to be prepared and truly enjoy these special times. Here are three summertime problems and preventatives for your home to keep in mind this summer.

Sewage line clogs/backups:

During the hot summertime months, there are tree roots underground that are constantly spreading, searching for water. With springtime and summertime rain showers, it is more likely for the ground to get oversaturated and cause that water to seep into your home’s water pipes through small cracks; this results in the sewer line backing up and needing a sewer cleanout. To prevent these events from happening, call a professional to service your sewers before the summertime comes.

Frequent Toilet Clogs: 

With More people coming over during the summertime, constant summertime activities will require you to use more of your home’s plumbing and water. This includes more use of your toilet, causing it to get clogged more often. 

Clogged garbage disposal: 

With all of the summertime cookout events taking place in your home this summer, it is essential to educate yourself on what types of foods should not be thrown down in the garbage disposal. With no knowledge of preventatives, you could cause a clog or damage your unit.
