Summer’s the time of backyard get-togethers, family parties, and a busy social calendar. But with all of that excitement comes plumbing issues. Here are some of the most common summer plumbing issues, and our tips on how to avoid them:

Clogged Disposals

Picture this: it’s a post-barbecue summer evening, and, during the cleanup, your 4-year-old son has shoved a plateful of chicken bones down your garbage disposal. Although you appreciate his efforts, a clogged disposal can spell serious consequences.

To prevent damage to your disposal, avoid hard foods and cooking oils, and remember to frequently flush out your disposal with water.

Clogged Toilets

Summer means more parties and more house guests. With bustling summer activities underway, loads of cushiony-soft tissue can get flushed down your toilets, causing stubborn clogging.

To minimize overflow, gently remind guests of paper usage parameters, and consider switching to one-ply tissue to reduce excess bulk.

Sprinkler Issues

In light of the rigors of summer events, lawn maintenance, and outdoor play escapades, it’s easy to overlook your lawn’s sprinkler system. A malfunctioning sprinkler system can seriously increase your water bill and decrease your lawn’s health.

To avoid a browning lawn, it’s important to regularly inspect sprinkler heads for clogs and costly leaks.

Sewer Line Backups

Perhaps the most inconvenient plumbing issues involve your sewer line. A problem with your sewer line is a costly repair and one that will disrupt most of your day-to-day activities.

Take a look outside your home for signs of bucking pipes, and regularly inspect for potential obstructions caused by overgrown tree roots or other vegetation that may cause an issue with your sewer line.
