Common Warm Weather Plumbing Issues

It is a known fact that our home or business’ plumbing systems can be damaged by cold climatic conditions. This is why many people think of frozen or busted pipes when on the topic of weather-related plumbing problems. However, you must know that winter is not the only season that is hard on your plumbing. You should also consider how the warm weather can have negative effects on the plumbing in your home or business.

 

PLUMBING OR WATER LEAK

For all our home or business plumbing needs, they add up to quite a workout, right? This is why it is important to always keep an eye out for water leaks. Make sure to check all your shower heads, toilets, and faucets for drips. Have them fixed immediately. Drips and leaks can quickly add up the amount of wasted water, which will result in higher water bills.

 

CLOGGED DRAINS & GARBAGE DISPOSALS

During warm seasons, most people have cookouts at home. As a result, drains and garbage disposals get more of a workout during this time of year. As easy as it is to get tempted to use your garbage disposal when cleaning and clearing after a cookout, keep in mind that not all types of food are meant to go down the disposal. Food that tends to retain water such as fibrous fruits and vegetables, bread, rice, and celery can quickly clog your garbage disposals and drains.

 

SEWER LINE LEAKS AND BACKUPS

Some of the most common plumbing problems during the warmer months are sewer line leaks and backups. The can be the cause of some serious problems for your home or business, so you should take note of them. If you have a clogged or backed up sewer line, you may notice that some of the other drains in your home are either gurgling or backing up whenever you run water in the shower or flush your toilet. Additional rainfall and new tree growths can also wreak havoc on your sewer lines, thus causing sewer leaks.

 

DAMAGE FROM UV RAYS

Warm weather conditions and harmful UV rays from the sun can cause extensive damage to plumbing pipes that are exposed. This is why any exposed plumbing must be covered with insulation appropriately. This is why it is important to have your pipes insulated. Not only does insulation protect them from the cold during winter, but it will also shield them from harmful UV rays during spring and summer.
