During the wintertime, the most common plumbing concerns include frozen pipes and water heater failure. While worries about these problems can be thrown to the wayside during the warmer months of June, July, and August, summer presents its own set of common plumbing problems, including:
When the municipal water supply overflows, the risk of a sewer backup considerably increase. Since summer is flood season in Arlington and many other parts of the country, it is important to keep an eye out for signs of backup and to contact an experienced plumber who offers 24-hour emergency service to keep damage and exposure to health hazards to a minimum.
Summer barbecues are a blast and the food can be delicious, but the grease and fat that you are left with after your guests devour heaps of hot dogs and hamburgers is too much for your garbage disposal to handle. No grease, fat, or cooking oil should be poured down your kitchen sink at any time of the year, especially not during the summer.
Clogged toilets are a common plumbing problem year-round, but they are much more common in the summer than at any other time of year. If you have children in your household, ensure that they know what can and cannot be flushed down the toilet. Set a good example and protect your home’s plumbing by following these rules yourself.
