3 Fall Plumbing Tips
Posted on October 31st, 2014
Fall is here, and with it comes a unique set of plumbing problems and issues. Between the hectic holiday season (i.e. Thanksgiving dinner) and cooler temperatures, there’s lots you’ll need to get ready for. The experts of Plumbing Medic are here to help you be prepared! Read on for three fall plumbing tips:
Make sure your drains are working properly. With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, having good working drains is of utmost importance. Foods tend to clog up the kitchen sink when not disposed of properly. If you already have a stubborn drain clog, you can use a simple plunger to clear things up. If you can’t get your kitchen drain unclogged by yourself, call us at (602) 649-6435 for help.
Flush out your water heater. Water heaters need to work harder during the fall and winter months. Flushing it out now will help remove buildup, which can shorten the lifespan of your water heater.
Locate your main water valve. Before it gets too chilly, you might want to close your interior shut-off valves that lead to outdoor faucets. It’s also important to figure out where the main water valve is located. This way, you can turn it off if you’re ever caught in a plumbing emergency.
If there’s anything you’re uncertain about, you’re better off calling a professional. Contact Plumbing Medic 24/7 for same-day service and 100 percent satisfaction guaranteed. Don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Google+ and Twitter for more tips!
