3 Common Plumbing Issues During Summer Summer is the favourite season for most people in the UK, especially in places like Wembley. Kids stay home from school and people take vacation during this time. There is a lot of vitamin D in the air! Unfortunately, in addition to being warm, summer can also be a hard time for your plumbing. The heat acts as a varied and new strain on the fixtures and pipes. Prevention is better than cure and the best way to deal with these issues is to anticipate them. More people in the home Irrespective of how small or big your family is, there are more people who stay at home during the summer. Kids enjoy their holidays and tend to use the washrooms more often than adults. They are also less proficient at using the bathroom fitters and the flushing systems. This leads to common plumbing issues with garbage disposal and clogged drains. If you want to avoid such problems, you should take special care of your plumbing systems, especially when you have increased footfall during the summer. Outdoor plumbing fixtures Take stock of your outdoor plumbing fixtures. This includes inspecting outdoor faucets for leaks and cracks, sprinklers and the gutters for back-ups. If you have a lawn at home, you will probably use it extensively during the summer months. Unfortunately, they tend to develop leaks or cracks during the winter months which can lead to precious water wastage. Hence, it is better to inspect them in advance and repair damage, if any. Sewer or gas lines The summer months are ideal for gardening. Irrespective of what you are planting – squash, tomatoes, peppers or cucumbers, it is important to note where they are being planted. This is because sewer and gas lines are often located in the yard. Before you dig into the ground and inadvertently cut the pipes with the shovel, ensure that you know where the plumbing system is laid out.
