Easy Tips to Avoid Common Plumbing Problems in the Summer

Your Summer should be spent having fun with your kids or enjoying your favorite hobby, not stressing over plumbing problems. Finding plumbing issues early will help you get them repaired before they cause extensive water damage to your home. There are many plumbing tips that will help you detect problems early on, to prevent major damages down the road. 

Here are a few tips for the Summer to make sure that your plumbing stays in good working order:

Monitor Your Water Pressure

Check each of your faucets regularly, both inside and outside of your home. A change in pressure could indicate a leak or broken pipe somewhere within your system. In some cases, a problem with your water pressure could mean a problem with the water lines leading to your home. If you can’t find the cause, your first call should be to the water company.

Watch for Leaks

Toilets that don’t shut off, dripping faucets, or water pressure that isn’t up to par can indicate a leak somewhere along your pipes. Leaks can be caused by loose fittings, worn out pipes, or broken fixtures. If you happen to find a drip or puddle of water, try to find out where it comes from.
