Can you believe that it's almost July?! In a few weeks, the summer will be halfway gone. Pretty unbelievable. Anyway, as the temperature continues to rise, your home is more likely to encounter a few plumbing issues than it would throughout the rest of the year. Our Myrtle Beach plumbing company is here to inform you what those issues could be, and what we can do to fix them.
1. Toilet/Disposal Maintenance – Think about it. The kids aren't in school anymore. You live at the beach and your family will use any excuse that they can to visit you during the warmer months. That means that the summer time brings a lot more use of your toilets and disposals. Since your fixtures are getting more and more action than they are used to, this can lead to maintenance issues. Address this issue by teaching your children to limit toilet paper use and not inform them on what they can or cannot toss down the drain. Being more aware of this during the summer can help to prevent issues in the future. If you do encounter a problem, give Benjamin Franklin Plumbing a call.
2. Outdoor Faucet Leaks – Sometimes leaks aren't found until you turn on an outdoor faucet for the first time. Once the weather heats up (do this next year), turn on your faucets and check for leaks. It's important to be aware of any issue right away before using the hose to wash your car or to fill up your pool.
3. Sprinkler Leaks – Keeping with the outside theme, let's talk about your sprinkler system. You and your neighbors use sprinkler systems to keep your lawns looking green. Makes sense, right? The issue is that most people don't use their systems for months on end, resulting in equipment dealing with wear and tear. Test your sprinkler system every month to make sure it's in tip-top shape. That way, you won't be shocked to see a large water bill due to a leak.
