Plumbing Issues Arise After A Long, Hot Summer

Summer can be really tough on home plumbing systems.

This is mostly due to noticeable increases in water usage. Kids are on summer vacation, meaning they are home more often and take more showers, wash more clothes and dishes and flush the toilets more frequently. Water usage also goes up as family swimming pools are filled and maintained and lawns and gardens are watered.

The good news for your plumbing system is summer break is just about over for most school kids. As they head back to school, now is a good time to check out just how much of a beating your plumbing has absorbed the past few months. The summer-long, accumulative effect on your home’s pipes and fixtures can result in potential plumbing system damage. Problems can include leaky pipes/fixtures, toilets that won’t shut off and clogged/blocked garbage disposals and sewer lines. Water filtration systems, washing machines, dishwashers and water heaters can also suffer wear and tear with the higher demand.
