Spring Plumbing Tips
Spring is here in the Dallas area and it is a good idea to check a few things around you home to prevent any surprises as the warmer weather moves in. Good places to check are your kitchen, bathrooms, appliances and general locations in and outside of the home.
For the kitchen and bathrooms, check all the faucets for leaks. Also check the drains for hair, soap and other substances that could be clogging up your drain. Check the toilet bowl for leaks or cracks. Check the toilet to ensure it is flushing properly. Finally clean your shower head with some vinegar to remove any mineral deposits.
Check the temperature of your water heater, it should be at no more than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. You can also drain a few gallons of water from your water heater, this will help prevent any sediment build up.
Outside the home you can check for birds nets in vent pipes, and make sure your gutters and drains are free of debris. Check your outdoor faucets to ensure they are working properly. The freezing weather could have caused a break or crack in the outside pipes.
