Spring Plumbing Tips: Top 5 Tips for Cleaning Your Plumbing This Spring
Your home's plumbing must be prepared for the warm weather this spring with the five pointers in this article.
You can do each item individually, or you may choose to complete the whole set just as the weather warms up.
Your home plumbing depends on a bit of upkeep, and this article explains how to complete such projects.
#1: Clean Faucets And Shower-heads
Clean the faucets and shower-heads in the house in preparation for the spring. Filters on faucets should be replaced, and shower-heads should be removed for cleaning.
Cleaning these items removes gunk that has built up during the winter, and you will have cleaner water coming through now that it is warm.
#2: Service The Toilets And Appliances
Water lines go to your toilets and appliances, but these water lines may clog in the winter. Cold weather plays havoc on the water lines in these appliances, and cleaning the water hoses will bring these appliances back to life.
The water hose behind your refrigerator or freezer is so small that it can trap debris easily. The water hose going to your toilet often gets no attention at all.
The warm weather may cause built up debris to flow into the system and damage the appliance. Cleaning in advance of warm weather prevents these sorts of problems.
#3: Clean Your Drains
Every drain in the house must be cleaned when you have a moment. Drains can harbor all kinds of dirt, debris and filth that you cannot see. The debris stays solid during the cold winter months, but the debris will fall away as it warms up outside.
You do not want all this debris making its way back into your plumbing system. Cleaning the drains prevents future clogs in the pipes caused by this debris.
Getting your home prepared for the spring and summer is critical to health of the plumbing system. Your pipes, appliances and faucets need as much help as they can get.
Spend just a few minutes performing each of the tasks above to keep your home cleaner. You will have cleaner water flowing through your pipes, and your plumbing appliances will last longer.
