Sunny Days Ahead

Avoid These Common Summer Plumbing Issues

Summer is here – the kids are home from school – responsibilities are thrown out the window…just don’t let your home turn into a free for all, for your plumbing’s sake! Here’s our top 5 most common plumbing issues in the summertime. 

Broken Washing Machines – This is the worst in our house. Between the pool and living at the Jersey Shore, I feel like we’re constantly washing beach towels. This is putting more stress on your washer than usual. Try not to overload and make sure they aren’t full of sand before throwing them in!

Clogged Shower Drains – Speaking of sand…hose off before getting in the shower! It’ll clog up faster than you’d think. 

Sprinkler Systems – Be sure to maintain your system properly at the beginning and end of each season. Also, make sure your landscaper knows where any broken, extended heads are so they don’t get run over by the mower. 

Garbage Disposal – Everybody loves a BBQ but there’s a whole lot of messy prep work included. Watch what you’re putting down the disposal! 

Summer Storms = Flooded Basements – These summer storms come in fast and furious. Consider installing a sump pump to help with any flooding. If you already have one, make sure to test it every once in a while to make sure it’s working properly.
