Summer Plumbing Checklist

While it may be easier to think of things that we need to do to keep our plumbing in check for winter, there are also plenty of things you can check to gear up for summer and make sure the water keeps flowing. Summer is a great time to get around to any projects that you’ve been meaning to tackle, so you may want to add these things to your summer preparation list.

Check for Leaks

Take some extra time to make sure that all of your fixtures and pipes aren’t leaking. We tend to use more water in the summer, so we want to make sure that we aren’t using more than we intend to. Turn on your faucets, flush your toilet, hook up your hose outside. Check the handles and pipes wherever you can to make sure there’s not moisture where it should be dry. Don’t forget to check around the base of your showers or toilets! You may also want to keep a close eye on your water bill. While you may expect to see a jump from increased usage, anything that seems alarmingly high could be linked to a leak you can’t see.

Check the Water Pressure

This can be done while you are checking for leaks. All you really need to do to check your water pressure is run a couple of faucets at the same time, or flush your toilet while running the shower. If the water pressure lessens while you’ve got a couple things running, it could be time to have things looked at, or keep the issue in mind. If it seems to get worse, you would certainly want to call a certified plumber to investigate the issue.

Check the Odds and Ends

Make sure all of the other working components of your plumbing are doing okay. Is your garbage disposal clogged or running inefficiently? Are your faucets loose and need to be tightened or replaced? Is your sump pump working correctly? Taking some time out of your day to double-check all of these things can save you time and money in the future, making sure to take care of any issues before they get worse.
