The holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year. Homeowners are preparing for family and friends coming into town for a visit which can increase the overall use of your home. Here are a few preventative tips to help ensure your plumbing is working smoothly during the holiday season.
Visually check your bathroom and kitchen sinks for signs of plumbing issues. Signs of plumbing issues can include clogged drains, faucet leaks and a slow water flow. Also check underneath the sink for leaky pipes. Large leaks and even small leaks should be addressed right away since they can lead into a major problem.
If you have noticed a clogged drain, now is the time to clean it out before company arrives. The more people using the sinks and showers can become an issue. Increased shower and sink use can create soap and hair buildup. Remove the stopper from the bathroom drain to clean up any buildup so the water can freely flow.
Inspecting the water heater annually is an important task which includes flushing the water heater of sediment, checking the pressure-release valve and inspecting the anode rod.
Look for any signs of water leaking, loose parts, or slow drainage which may be an indication that your toilet may need to be serviced. If you discover a problem, contact your Greenville Plumber, Premier Plumbing to address your concerns.
