Spring Plumbing Tips for Your Spring Home

Winter is slowly making its way out of Spring Texas and that means it is time to inspect the plumbing system to ensure the harsh winter weather didn’t cause any damage that will erupt when the weather is less frightful outside. You want to prepare for the spring season to avoid problems that could cost substantial money to fix. Here are a few tips that can help ensure your plumbing is ready for the spring season.

·    Clean out the drains and make sure you don’t clog up the drains with dirty, hair, soap, etc.

·    Check all of the faucets in the home for leaks and drips. Even a small drip is annoying and can lead to major leaks, mold and mildew growth, adding expense on your water bill.

·    Conduct a toilet leak check as well. Use a few drops of food color in the water tank. Let it stay for 30 minutes. If the colored water makes it into the bowl, your toilet is leaking and it’s time to pick up the phone to schedule service with the plumber spring tx.

·    Replace the water heater if it is over 15 years old.

·    Check the hoses on your washing machine to ensure there are no cracks, breaks, or other signs of trouble.

·    Test the sump pump to ensure that it has not sustained any damage from the winter weather.

·    Clean the gutters and downspouts on the house.  If they become dirty, you could endure a substantial amount of damage.
