It’s summertime! The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and we are all looking for ways to be together to soak it all up! With the kids out of school, and family and friends over for parties, that means more flushes of the toilet, more clothes to wash, and more dishes to clean. Your home’s plumbing will see a lot of activity this season, don’t take it for granted! Here are five tips to help your plumbing run smoothly this summer.
Check for leaks
When you are looking for signs of trouble, be sure to examine all aspects and connections throughout the home. From faucets in your kitchen or bathroom to pipes underneath sinks -stop leaks before they become serious problems! Investing some time into routine maintenance can help avoid costly repairs in the future so get started today with Lindstrom Air Conditioning and Plumbing expert services.
Don’t get us started on clogged pipes. Clogged drains are inconvenient any time of the year but especially in the summer when pool parties, BBQs, and family visits are in full force. Kitchen sink clogs are often messy as grease and food or other debris builds up.
And we can’t forget about the bathroom sinks and tubs! Bathroom drain clogs from hair can be just as frustrating. The worst thing that could happen would be another disaster from using chemicals like Drano and other harsh cleaners. They often cause more harm than good, can be dangerous if not used properly, and are often ineffective against stubborn clogs which require special skills only available through professionals. If you are experiencing slow or clogged drains take action before they result in very messy back-ups. The best way to unclog drains is to call the expert team at Lindstrom!
Clear the Garbage Disposal
Speaking of the kitchen, let’s talk about the garbage disposal! Believe it or not, your garbage disposal cannot handle ALL waste. It’s best to avoid fruits and vegetables with stringy fibers, such as celery, and banana peels, as well as melon rinds, and fatty meats. These items aren’t garbage disposal friendly as they tend to stick to the blades or the inside of your pipes, causing them to clog and become a breeding ground for gunk and offensive odors!
Save Water and Money
Waiting for a warm shower is never a fun experience. Fortunately, there are ways to ensure you never have this problem again! One way is with comfort pumps. Comfort pumps are a great way to make your home comfortable while also saving money. Installed onto the water heater, these devices send heated recycled water back into pipes where any sink or faucet can access it!
Another consideration is to install a Tankless Water Heater. Tankless systems provide hot water on demand, the supply is endless. These systems also use up to 40% less energy than traditional tank heaters and can have a life span that is twice as long.
