Today marks the official first day of summer and you can expect warmer temperatures to stay put for a while. With that said, it’s important to make sure your home’s plumbing system is ready to handle everything summer has to throw at it. Check out the summer plumbing checklist below to ensure your house is in tip-top shape:
Give your outdoor appliances some attention. Chances are, they’ve been sitting in the yard without being used for about a year now, so it’s important to make sure they’re still working properly. Check water and gas lines and don’t be afraid to call in a professional if anything seems to be malfunctioning.
Inspect the pool for cracks, leaks or other damage. A leaky pool can become a very expensive problem if it’s not taken care of right away. It’s also a good idea to check the heater, if you have one, especially if it operates off of a gas line.
Clean your drains and gutters. Severe storms are common during the summer months and if the water isn’t draining properly, you could be in for some major headaches.
Check your sprinkler system and if you notice that it’s not as powerful as it was in recent years, you could have a leak.
Open up outdoor water valves and attach garden hoses to the spigots. Pay attention to leaks or broken or damaged parts.
