Your plumbing system is no different during this type of year than it is any other. However, it’s safe to assume that with an increase in get-togethers and other summer festivities, your plumbing system has likely gotten quite the workout.
As such, you’ll want to make sure it’s ready for the end of summer and subsequently ready for the coming months. Below we’ve shared some end of summer plumbing maintenance tips to keep your system in great shape.
Have Your Water Heater Flushed
If you want your water heater to work as efficiently as it can, then you should have one of our professional plumbers come and flush out any sediment that might have built up within the tank. Your water heater accounts for much more of your energy use than you may realize, so keep your costs low by having this maintenance task performed.
Upgrade Your Fixtures
This can be done at any time of the year, but while the summer is still warm and you don’t need your hot water as much yet, you might want to think about updating outdated or corroded fixtures to avoid any problems this fall and winter. Upgrading to a low-flush toilet is also a great way to increase efficiency and cut costs.
Have Your Drains Cleaned
This is a big one, considering how much your drains were probably used this summer (particularly your kitchen area). Don’t rely on store-bought liquid drain cleaner to get the job done either. Efficient drain cleaning takes a professional touch with the expertise and tools that only our team can provide. Store-bought cleaners can actually cause erosion and do more harm than good to your plumbing system.
