Common Summer Plumbing Problems

Summertime is a great time of year here in Southern New England, but not for your plumbing system. With the kids home from school for the summer, and the lawn needing attention, it is a pretty taxing time of the year on your home’s plumbing. Here are several common problems that you might encounter over the next few months.

  1. Clogged Toilet: Summer usually means more people in the house, which means more people using the bathroom. Luckily, it’s an easy fix. A simple plunger should do the trick. But for larger clogs, your best bet is to get professional help.
  2. Sprinkler Issues: Giving your lawn the care it needs keeps it lush and green, but time-to-time, your sprinklers can break. If you have an automatic sprinkler system, the heads can be hard to see, so knowing where each one is located is key. Watch where you mow!
  3. Sewer Line Backup: Summer is storm season, which can cause backups in your sewer line. No one want’s leaks in their home. Simple buying a drain plug should help prevent one from springing. Give us a call if your backup is out of your control.

Plumbing issues range in difficulty, so it’s important to know what your DIY limits are. When you need a trained, experienced professional, a call to Greenwood won’t let you down. We’re here for you, 24 hours a day, seven days a week!
