Plumbing Tips in Spring Time

Here are some springtime plumbing tips.  *Ensure that all drains have strainers to prevent hair, soap, and debris from clogging drain lines  *Exercise water supply valves under sinks and toilets to prevent them from sticking  *Make sure toilets flush properly and you don’t have to jiggle the handle to get the toilet to flush, if you need to jiggle the handle, tank parts may need replaced  *Check the temperature of your water heater, it should not be set above 120 degrees to prevent scalding  *Pour a gallon of water into infrequently used drains to prevent odors from entering the house  *If your home has a sump pump, make sure it is functioning properly before Spring rains begin  *Make sure yard drains, gutters and downspouts are cleaned out and free of debris  *Check your outdoor hose bib, if it leaks or drips the first time it is turned on, you may have had a frozen pipe that cracked and needs replaced.  De Hart Plumbing, serving Manhattan Kansas, Junction City Kansas and Wamego Kansas.Plumbing Tips
