How to Prepare Your Plumbing for Back-to-School Season
Posted on August 9th, 2016
Back-to-School season is right around the corner. For families with kids, this often means hectic mornings fighting over the bathroom. Here are a few tips to help your family and your bathroom survive the back-to-school rush.
Back-to-School Plumbing Tips:
Check Your Water Pressure – Make sure that your water pressure is working normally. This will help make showers and toothbrushing routines more effective.
Fix Leaks – Check your faucets and showerheads to make sure that they are functioning properly and that there are no leaks.
Keep Bathrooms Ventilated – Turn on your bathroom exhaust fan after each shower and bath. This will help you avoid humidity and keep your cooling costs down.
Set a Schedule – With everyone in the house trying to get ready at the same time, it’s important to have a schedule in place. Plan out your showers and times when you’ll each need to be in the bathroom to get to where you need to be.
Always Wash Full Loads – Always wash full loads of laundry. This will help you save time, energy and money.
Upgrade for Energy Efficiency – With your family placing a higher demand on your plumbing system, now is the perfect time to upgrade to energy efficient fixtures and appliances. If you’re due for a new showerhead, faucet or water heater, make the switch to a more energy-efficient option.
