4 Common Summer Plumbing Issues

Summer weather, had me a blast

Summer plumbing, happened so fast

Got a clog and it’s worrying me

Water bill, high as can be

Summer days drifting away

To, uh oh, those plumbing issues

Family days at the lake, backyard barbeques, and extra showers to wash off all that sweat can take a toll on your home’s plumbing! In this blog, we’ll break down some common summer plumbing issues that you may come across and how to beat them.

Barbeques and your garbage disposal

Not everything that goes into a backyard barbeque can go into your garbage disposal. It may seem like the garbage disposal can get rid of anything. It’s a powerful machine, but it can’t handle everything. Certain food scraps can cause some serious plumbing issues when putting down the drain. Here are some examples of food and items that should be thrown away in the trash instead of put down the sink.

  • coffee grounds
  • bones
  • potato peels
  • fruit scraps
  • most vegetable scraps
  • eggshells
  • cooked meat scraps
  • nuts
  • banana peels
  • grease
  • asparagus
Drain

Clogged drains with sand, grass, etc.

Before hopping in the shower after a day outside, make sure that you are not bringing the outside with you! Excess sand or grass being washed down the drain can lead to clogs. A quick rinse with the hose outside can wash away debris before bringing it inside. If you don’t have a hose, wiping it off with a damp cloth works just as well to protect those pipes.

Clogged toilets

Whether it’s having the kids home for the summer or extra guests visiting, your toilet might be getting a little extra use during the summer. If you happen to get stuck with a clog, don’t worry! We’ve got a breakdown on how you can bust up that clog and get your toilet back to business as usual.

Extra hot water usage

Do you find yourself taking more showers in the summer? Or maybe washing a few more loads of laundry with all those grass-stained clothes? Then you might see that reflected on your monthly water bill.

A plumbing tune-up is a great way to make sure all your plumbing equipment is working at peak capacity. With properly functioning equipment, you use less money to keep things flowing!

If you really want to see a difference on your monthly bill, consider upgrading to a tankless water heater. A tankless water heater does not store water all of the time. Instead, the water runs through the tankless heater which uses gas or electric energy to heat the water. A great benefit of tankless water heaters is that they only use energy when a demand is present. So you won’t be wasting energy (and running up your bill) until you turn on that faucet. We also love how tankless water heaters can provide more hot water than a typical tank style water heater. No more competing for the first shower to get the hot water!
