6 Helpful Spring Plumbing Tips

CHECK YOUR SUMP PUMP

With heavy spring rain, it is important to inspect your sump pump to ensure it is functioning smoothly.

CHECK YOUR WATER HEATER

Check your water heater for signs of corrosion + leaks. Look for puddles, rust or soot around the control panel. If you see signs these, call us. Also, make sure your water heater’s temperate does not exceed 120 °F.

CLEAN YOUR GUTTERS + DOWN SPOUTS

Make sure yard drains, gutters and downspouts are cleaned out + open, and free of debris.

WATCH FOR LEAKS CONNECTED TO SPRINKLERS AND OUTDOOR FAUCETS

Outdoor pipes can easily freeze + break over the winter. When temperatures outside heats up, watch your pipes for signs of leaks. If you notice a water leak in your home the first time you turn on your hose or other faucets, this is a sign that one of your pipes froze + broke over the winter.

CHECK YOUR WATER VALVES

Occasionally, turn off the water valves in your home, then turn them back on to keep the parts from becoming stuck.

CHECK YOUR TOILET + FAUCETS FOR LEAKS

Look for any drips + leaks that may need repairs. Also, examine your toilets + tanks for any hidden leaks or cracks and make sure your toilet is not constantly running – which could run up your water bill.
