Tips to Prevent Outdoor Plumbing Problems This Year
If you’re like most of us, you’ve probably had the water turned off to any outside spigots or fixtures for the last few months. Now that it’s starting to warm up, it’s time to get everything up and running and to make certain you don’t have any concerns looming for the summer. Here’s a checklist to help you address all the potential outdoor plumbing issues:
- Check all sprinklers and sprinkler heads — Make certain they are tightly fastened and that there are no leaks or cracks. Replace, if necessary.
- Examine all hose bibs and faucets — Look for leaks or rust—anything that may impact their ability to regulate the flow of water. You can lose a lot of water in a hurry with a broken or leaking faucet.
- If you have a pool — Run the pump and make certain it cycles as it should. Check the seal around the filter and replace all necessary filters.
- Clean all gutters and outside drains, so that you don’t have water back up anywhere
- Inspect your plumbing vent pipes — This is actually an internal and external checklist item. Unfortunately, birds can often consider a plumbing vent pipe as the perfect place for a nest. If that happens, you can get a buildup of dangerous gases in your home.
