6 Summer Plumbing Problems You Need to Watch Out For

6 Summer Plumbing Problems
You Need to Watch Out For

  1. With warm weather going, and your family might again decide to just hunker down at home the entire summer because of pandemic limitations, it is likely that your plumbing will experience more use than the rest of the year. Summer is the season that calls for more water usage, having extra cooking, and perhaps more laundry time. While it’s a fun time for outdoor leisure and enjoying the smell of barbecue going, it’s also the time where significant plumbing issues can occur. Do not let this happen to you. Here are some plumbing problems you need to watch out for and tips on keeping your plumbing in the best shape this season.
  • 6 Summer Plumbing Problems You Need to Watch Out For

  1. 1. COMMON CLOGS
  2.  
  3. With your family mostly at home and using plumbing more frequently compared to the previous summer before the pandemic, it wouldn’t be a surprise that you’ll see more clogged drains and toilets. Of all the plumbing misfortunes that can happen in your home this summer, there’s likely nothing more terrifying than watching the water in your toilet and drains threateningly coming back up. You can only hope that it will drain away by itself so you can keep the plungers where it belongs! To keep a happy drain, keep your toilet and drains free from debris, grease, and dirt. Place drain mesh in the kitchen and if it’s possible don’t rely too much on your garbage disposal. Throw food scraps in the garbage instead. Don’t put things down the drains that could potentially cause a problem. Kitchen grease in particular can clog pipes, and loose hair is also nothing but trouble if you flush them down your toilet.
  4.  
  5. 2. KITCHEN SINK BREAKDOWNS
  6.  
  7. While it’s still a little tough for most of us to spend summertime with loved ones, we can still choose to enjoy our beloved barbecues and great food just at home when summer is in full swing. But, whilst you look forward to this day, be warned of the little things that can easily slip your mind when you’re enjoying barbecue time with family as well. It is during this moment where you can get so busy in the kitchen that you’re inclined to throw just anything down the drain. Don’t dump leftover food and grease on your garbage disposal, especially those that don’t easily break down. You could be facing blade issues and clog trouble in an instant if you do this.
  8.  
  9. To avoid spoiling your summer, make sure to throw your leftovers and grease in the garbage. You could also run hot water through your disposal to clear any grease away after washing your kitchenware. If you need to wash greasy kitchenware in your sink, make sure to remove the grease off first with a paper towel and dispose of them properly.
  10.  
  11. 3. WASHER PROBLEM
  12.  
  13. Summer is the season for outdoor activities, whether you choose to spend summer this year at the beach, barbecuing just at home, or camping with your kids, you can go through a hefty laundry pile during this hot season. Before summer is in full swing, pull out your washer and make sure the hoses are in prime shape. Look for any traces of fracture, such as leaks, cracks, and bulges. If your washer is clogged, you can remove the drain hose and run a moderate to high-pressure water stream through it. This should force the clog out. Make sure to put your washer back about 4-inches away from the wall and the hose is not kinked. A drain hose that is bent or twisted will make the water struggle to pass through and the twisted part vulnerable to clogs. High-capacity washers can get the laundry done without a problem, but constantly loading high volumes of clothing, plus the hose in bad condition, can lead to washer breakdowns. If it’s been a while since you replaced your hoses, it may be the best time to do it now before it’s too late.
  14.  
  15. 4. HIGH WATER USAGE
  16.  
  17. It’s no surprise that our plumbing sees a lot of use during the hotter months. Whether you’re filling a swimming pool, or using your garden sprinkler often to keep it hydrated and taking a shower frequently, these are just a few of the reasons your water bill may spike in the hotter months. In some cases, an increase in your water use could also be blamed on hidden pipe leaks. High water usage can overwhelm your plumbing, so are the leaks that are working silently. To ensure there are no leaks in your water supply pipe and your drainage pipes are up for the challenge this summer, invite a plumber for pipe inspection. Pipe professionals like the pipeline relining company can help ensure your pipe is in the best shape possible. Doing this is also giving yourself a huge favor not only this season but as well as in the coming months.
  18.  
  19. 5. SEWER LINE PROBLEMS
  20.  
  21. During the spring, where tree roots actively grow, new roots may have popped up and succeeded in forcing their way into your sewer system through leaks. If you live in a heavy rainfall area, brace yourself as the extreme rain penetrates cracks in your system, causing your sewer to back up. If you don’t want your home to plunge into a flood of sewages, be sure to have us take a look if you suspect any potential damage to your sewer line. Don’t wait till your home is lashed by heavy rain and thunderstorms before you get your system checked.
  22.  
  23. 6. OVERWHELMED STORMWATER LINES
  24.  
  25. It’s not surprising anymore that Australia gets a lot of heavy rainfall and storms during summer. This year, we’re even asked to brace ourselves for more storm damage as the La Nina weather event gets underway. What this means to households are events of overflowing stormwater lines. If it has been a while since you’ve cleaned your gutter, storm drains and your pipe inspected, do so now before it’s too late. When rainwater escapes from your gutter or your stormwater pipe, it can crawl towards your roof and down to your walls making your home’s structure wet and musty, and ultimately causing flooding in your property. If this is something that peeves you, call Revolution Pipe Relining now to make sure your stormwater pipes are prepped for summer storms and rainfalls.
