Have You Done Your Springtime Plumbing Maintenance?

March 24th, 2020

Have you noticed that the temperature is starting to rise again? As birds return home from their trip south and the residents of Philadelphia start to put their winter coats back into storage, there’s no way to deny that spring is nearly here.

Spring means a lot of things. When many people think of spring, the first things that come to their mind is rain, flowers, and spring cleaning. However, one thing that should also be considered is annual springtime plumbing maintenance. Like any other part of your home, your plumbing system needs a little TLC to stay in good working order.

One of the first things you should do when you start your spring plumbing checklist is to inspect your pipes. As flowers and trees start to grow again, it is a great idea to have your pipes checked for roots. If roots make their way into your pipes, you might experience everything from water flow interruption to brown water running from your tap. The sooner the problem can be detected, the easier it is to fix—so be sure to start your spring plumbing checkup with a root check.

You should also have your water heater inspected when spring arrives. If you do not regularly empty and clean your water heater, you may wind up needing water heater repairs in the near future.

Finally, you should have Guaranteed Plumbing & Heating’s team of plumbers in Philadelphia check and make sure your plumbing is in solid condition after the winter. When the ground freezes, it puts a lot of pressure on your pipes. This can lead to cracks or broken pipes, which can cause a lot of issues as the weather warms up.

I supplied her Guaranteed’s number. She was a little hesitant, but called. Your employee Brian was dispatched. […]
