Outdoor Plumbing Maintenance 101

Posted on May 6th, 2015 by Jupiter Tequesta

Did you know that leaky outdoor spigots are a leading cause of wasted water? That’s just one reason why outdoor plumbing maintenance is so important. Refer to the following guide to make sure you’ve got it all under control:

Inspect drains, gutters and downspouts. Look for leaves and debris, which can accumulate and lead to floods. Remove any buildup to avoid damage to your home!

Check outdoor spigots. “A slow drip from an outdoor spigot can add up to 20 gallons of water a day or 500 gallons a month,” cautions Angie’s List. However, spigot leaks can be hard to detect. Shut off the faucet, wait for it to stop dripping, and then place a paper bag beneath it. Check back later — if the paper is still dry, you don’t have to worry!

Service your sewer and pipelines. Improperly serviced sewer lines and pipelines have the potential to become expensive problems. For instance, tree roots can crush pipes, rendering them useless. Jupiter-Tequesta Air Conditioning, Plumbing & Electric’s technicians are expertly trained and equipped with advanced technology to clear almost any blockage.

Add a timer to your sprinkler system. Some homeowners use more water on their lawns than anything else in and around the house. Installing a timer can save money and conserve water!
