Spring Training is on and popping in Clearwater! Have you checked out any of the games to make sure your favorite baseball teams and players are training for a productive season? Don’t forget to “spring train” your plumbing to perform at its best all season as well! Read on to learn a few tips.
Search Your Property for Water Damage
Water damage is one issue that homeowners should never take lightly. Not only will water destroy almost any material that it comes into contact with, but it is also a sign that there is damage to one or more pipes in your home. This type of damage often takes place in areas such as under sinks, in basements, around the foundation of a home, and along floorboards. In addition to visual damage, you and your family should also be wary of unusual musty smells in these areas. No one wants to deal with a plumber when a big game is on tv!
Don’t Ignore Slow Leaks
A faucet or shower head with a slow drip is much more than a minor annoyance. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average household wastes over 10,000 gallons of water per year due to slow leaks. In many cases, these leaks are the result of a damaged valve or o-ring. Homeowners who are not comfortable working on their plumbing system should immediately contact a plumber when they notice dripping faucets, fixtures, and shower heads.
Take Care of Your Garbage Disposal
Warm weather is met with baseball games, family parties and barbecues, and this can put an incredible amount of strain on your garbage disposal if you are not careful. Everyone in your family should know exactly what can and can’t be put down the garbage disposal during this time of year. As a general rule, all food debris including fats and oils should be thrown away instead of washed down the sink.
