You’ll Want To Avoid These Fall Plumbing Nightmares
Are you getting into the fall spirit? As we sit down to enjoy pumpkin spice everything, don’t forget to also check a few things off of your home improvement checklist. Here are a few tips to help you avoid plumbing nightmares and keep your home in great shape this fall.
Tips to Avoid Plumbing Nightmares:
- Check Your Water Heater Setting – Check the temperature setting on your home’s water heater thermostat. Set your water heater to 120 degrees F. This is the ideal temperature for comfortable water and energy efficient savings.
- Fix Leaky Faucets - Over time, leaky faucets can add up to significant water waste and wear and tear on your plumbing system. Don’t push off fixing that leaky kitchen sink faucet!
- Inspect Your Sump Pump – Do you have a sump pump installed in your home? Check to make sure that your sump pump is working efficiently to prevent flooding – especially if you live close to the water.
- Keep Pumpkin Pulp Away From Your Disposal- Are you carving a pumpkin this year? While this is a great Halloween tradition, it’s not so great for your home’s plumbing. Be sure to keep pulp and seeds out of your garbage disposal this year. Throw them in the trash or bake the seeds as a snack instead!
