Summer is almost here, which means warmer weather and more activities with family and friends. Unfortunately, it can also mean plumbing problems. C4 Plumbing, Heating, & Cooling is here to give you some tips to look out for to prevent plumbing problems this summer!
Toilet backups and clogs are very common during the summer months. This is a direct result of more activity in the home. Your toilets will be used more. You may also have more children using the toilets. Children are known to flush items down toilets and to use an abundance of toilet paper. This is enough to cause your toilet to become blocked. If this occurs, contact your local plumber to remove the clog quickly so that you can go on about your life!
Sinks become clogged for two reasons. The main ones are grease or other items that were put down the disposal, and the other is a possible root in the line. With more people at your home, you will likely be cooking more. It is important to be aware of what items are going down your sink or disposal. Grease can cause a massive clog in your sink, which can harden, almost like cement. This will need a plumber for removal.
While water heaters can break at any time, many notice problems during the summer months. More people will be home and using hot water. If you notice a lack of hot water, it might be time for either a replacement or adjustments. Your plumber will be able to determine what needs to be done to ensure your adequate hot water!
