Summer Plumbing Tips
Summer is that time of year that everyone looks forward to. We all want to be outside, playing in the sun and having a good time. Unfortunately, these good times can put additional strain on your plumbing. Rodger’s Plumbing is here to help with a few things you should be looking out for during the summer months.
- Garbage Disposal Repair
With the increased rate of family and friend get-togethers during the summer, your garbage disposal is bound to see some extended use. Make sure you make it clear to everyone in the household that large, stringy items such as corn husks are not to be thrown down into the garbage disposal. You don’t want your garbage disposal to be clogged. Also make sure you aren’t putting greasy food such as bacon grease from those big family breakfasts down there. If you do run into a clogged or broken garbage disposal, give Rodgers Plumbing a call!
- Outdoor Faucets and Spigots
Early summer months are prime time for using your outdoor faucet. Whether it be running your sprinkler, washing your car, filling up your pool; the more you use your spigot, the more likely it could lead to a leak. A leak could lead to an unexpectedly high water bill and it can leave a dark, unattractive patch of damp soil next to your home. A lot of times you can fix the leak by yourself by tightening the packing nut. If the leak persists after that, contact Rodger’s Plumbing and we can help diagnose the problem.
- Sewer Pipe Maintenance
Summer storms in Texas are extremely common. If you have small cracks in your sewer line, the rain water can leak into your line and cause congestion or blockages. It is suggested to get your sewer lines inspected every year. To make sure that your pipes are prepared for the summer, call the experts at Rodgers’s Plumbing and we will check to make sure your sewer lines are in good shape.
