5 Summer Plumbing Tips

Sacramento Plumbing Inspection ServicesSummer is always fun for you and your family but it may not be so much fun for your plumbing system if you’re not careful. Here are a few tips that will help you to take care of your plumbing while enjoying your Summer.

The Aftermath of Cookouts and Outdoor Fun

Our first two tips concern a similar topic: during the summer you and your family will be spending much more time outdoors doing various summer activities, probably including cookouts and other forms of outdoor cooking. This can lead to two issues.

The first is that you’ll likely be using your washing machine and dryer more often to clean all those dirty clothes. Make sure that you check your washing machine hoses for cracks and other problems and that you are regularly removing the lint from your dryer.

The next issue is that a lot of outdoor cooking tends to produce waste that should not be disposed of down the drain, even if you have a garbage disposal unit. Take the time to sort over the waste and ensure that what needs to go into the trash, goes into the trash.

Energy Savings

Our next two tips will concern ways you can save energy. A penny saved, is a penny earned after all.

The first thing you can do to save energy is to turn down the temperature of your water heater a bit. This will make it consume less power and since it is already hot during the summer, you won’t need the extra heat anyway.

The next thing you can do to save energy is to adjust the temperature of your refrigerator. In the summer it may consume more power to maintain a stead temperature but you can likely turn it up a bit without endangering your perishables if you’re very careful.

Annual MaintenanceSacramento Plumber

With so many things placing a strain on your pluming system in the summer, there is no better time to have your local plumbers come out and do an annual inspection/maintenance for your system. This will ensure that everything is running properly and that any developing problems are caught before they become a big expensive mess to fix.

If you’re experiencing any Summer plumbing problems or if you simply want to make sure that everything is working properly, give your local plumbers a call to day and have them come take a look, you’ll be glad you did.
