As you begin your yearly “spring cleaning”, don’t forget your plumbing! To help you out here is a list of plumbing tips to get you ready for the SPRING SEASON.

CHECK SPIGOTS AND HOSES FOR LEAKS

Make sure you check your spigots and hoses for any leaks from the harsh winter. This commonly occurs where hoses have been left on the hose bib throughout the winter

CLEAN GUTTERS AND DOWN SPOUTS

Clean your yard drains, gutters and downspouts from debris. This will help prevent leaks in your home and water damage during April Showers Season.

CHECK PLUMBING VENT PIPES

Check your plumbing vent pipes for bird nests.

CLEAN MINERAL BUILD-UP FROM SHOWER HEAD AND FAUCETS

Clean mineral build-up from your shower head and faucets. You can fill a plastic bag with vinegar; place it over the shower head and hold in place with a rubber band. Soak for 15-20 minutes or overnight if needed. Remove deposits with a toothbrush.

CHECK THOSE SUMP PUMPS

Heavy spring rains can cause flooding if your sump pump isn’t working properly. Most pumps should be replaced every 5 years or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion.
