Is Your Plumbing System Ready for Spring

A lot of homeowners put extra effort into preparing their pipes for winter. Of course, winterizing is essential to the health and longevity of your plumbing system. However, its also important to check up on your plumbing after the snow has thawed, to ensure your pipes are ready for the demands of spring and summer. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh, PA, we enjoy helping our local commercial and residential clients find ways to improve their plumbing systems. Here are some tips for how you can properly prepare your pipes before spring fully arrives.

Test Your Garden Hoses, Sprinklers and Irrigation System to Ensure its in Good Health

Your lawn and garden will require a lot of tender love and care following the harshness of winter. And all the tilling, planting and pruning will put additional stress on your pipes. Frozen weather, burrowing pests and natural soil conditions may have created issues with your hoses and sprinkler system including leaks, fractures and blockages. Once the final frost date has passed, its important to throughout inspect and test your outdoor plumbing fixtures to ensure a successful start to this years gardening and landscape plans.

Drain the Water Heater Tank

While youre already doing some spring cleaning of your pipes and drains, its also a great opportunity to perform an often-neglected maintenance task - draining your water heater tank. Over time, debris from your water supply can settle in the bottom of your tank, making it more difficult to heat and maintain warm temperatures through the layer of sediment. Draining and cleaning your tank will remove this material, and give your water heater a well-earned break after several months of hard work.

Invest in a Professional Inspection

The constant changing of temperatures that occurs over winter and early spring can create air pressure due to the freezing and melting of water. This increase in pressure is frequently responsible for problems like burst pipes, leaks and damage to pipe fittings. Its recommended that homeowners and businesses schedule a professional plumbing inspection once or twice a year to ensure theyre plumbing system is well cared for and in good shape. Otherwise, you could suffer from hidden issues like water damage, mold growth and expensive utility bills. Take the proactive approach by calling a certified plumber who can properly inspect and diagnose any issues before they become major hassles.
