Protect Summer Fun From These 3 Common Plumbing Problems

Plumbers in Timberwood Park, TX, want to keep plumbing problems from ruining summer plans.

Plumbing Problems Can Wash Out Summer Activities 

Summer is the perfect time to rest and recharge. This is the season that most people schedule their vacations from work and take time off to relax. But, just because people take the summer off, it doesn’t mean that plumbing problems just go away. Unfortunately, plumbing problems are all too common during the summer. 

For homeowners that wish to protect their summer plans, be on the lookout for these three common summer plumbing problems. 

Sprinkler System Problems

Landscaping around the home and a lush lawn are two of the most critical components of the house’s curb appeal. Probably the most important thing that allows these two things to flourish is a sound sprinkler system. Sprinkler systems are a modern miracle for good landscaping or a vegetable garden because they irrigate plants automatically. However, when they have problems, they can wreak havoc. 

Winter takes its toll on plumbing, especially sprinkler systems. If not cared for properly, sprinkler lines will bust from freezing temperatures. When they are charged with pressure in the spring, they can cause a lot of damage to surrounding soil and landscaping. Additionally, even if breaks haven’t occurred, a malfunctioning sprinkler system can allow specimen plants or large sections of turf to die under the summer heat. 

Busted Hose Bibs

Whether they are being used to water flower beds or allow the kids to have a slip and slide outside, fully functioning hose bibs are essential for the summer. There are several ways that hose bibs can malfunction, including:
  • Broken vacuum breakers that spray water out of the top of the bib
  • Busted seals that cause constant leaks
  • Damage that allows leaks to occur between the bib and a hose
  • Broken handles
  • Leaks behind the wall from mechanical damage

Plumbers can help get hose bibs working again. Functioning hose bibs make outdoor work easier to complete and outdoor fun more accessible. By repairing bust hose bibs, homeowners can even save money by preventing water wastage. 

Sewer Line Damage

There is no good time of the year to suffer from sewer damage, but the summer may be the worst. Summers are a time to be carefree with vacations and dinner parties. Homeowners shouldn’t have to worry about their plans being wrecked by a backed-up sewer line. 

To prevent embarrassing and damaging sewer problems, plumbers have several tools to help. For homeowners that want peace of mind, cameras can be inserted into sewer lines to look for potential problems. If problems are found, rooting or hydro jetting can remove potential clogs before they cause significant problems. If invasive roots are getting into sewer lines, a sewer line replacement can upgrade the pipe to modern plastics that resist root invasion. 

Scheduling a plumbing visit before the summer kicks off can give homeowners peace of mind and ensure that their plumbing will be in good shape for summer activities.
