Why Having A Professional Plumber On Speed Dial Is Smart

So, you’ve battled the seasonal dilemma that the cold has played on your plumbing, right? Wrong! You begin to notice a hot water leak in your kitchen sink or an odor coming from the laundry room. Simple plumbing fixes can be done on your own, but more serious plumbing issues will require the help of a professional. Here are some of the common summer plumbing problems that require professional help.

Clogged Pipes

After a long winter, your family has spent a considerable amount of time indoors which means an increased use of your plumbing system. As summer works its way in, so does the threat of clogged drains. With the spring bringing in strong winds and heavy rain storms, leaves and debris can accumulate in your storm drain which can clog your system. Expert plumbing technicians suggest keeping your yard clean from sticks, leaves, and debris to avoid clogs.

Water Heater Issues

During the winter, your hot water heater has worked over time and can face many issues by the time spring settles in. Your hot water heater has done a lot to provide your family with warmth over the winter. In fact, your typical hot water heater may not be prepared for the excess use it has endured over winter, and it’s common for your hot water tank to malfunction or breakdown in the summer.

Leaky Pipes

Leaky pipes are very common in the summer. The drastic change in temperature plays a key role in diminishing the durability of your pipes by the time it starts to warm up. Standing water from heavy rain storms can also create issues with your pipes. If you have older pipes, standing water can have an impact on your water pressure.

Sewer Line

The warmer temperatures breathes new life into trees and vegetation. Their roots thrive on soil, nutrients, and water. The water in your underground main and sewer line will be attractive to roots causing them to attack vulnerable pipes. Underground plumbing issues that involve your main or sewer line should always be serviced by a professional to avoid further damage to your underground plumbing. Customers will be forced to deal with slow drainage and issues with their water pressure from a damaged sewer line.

Foul Plumbing Odor(s)

The summer humidity can create various types of odors in your home based on your unique plumbing issues. For example, if you’re smelling a foul odor after a heavy summer rain, this could be a sign that your septic tank is having issues and methane gas is escaping into your home because it doesn’t have a way to properly ventilate. A professional plumber has the expertise to inspect and repair your plumbing vents if you’re experiencing a foul odor in your home or business.
