Each season comes with its own set of tasks to get your home prepared, and the summer season is no different.
Now that the first day of school is within reach, it is clear that the summer season is coming to an end and we are going to be transitioning to fall.
These next few weeks are the perfect time of year to transition your home from summer to fall also.
There are plenty of tasks that should be done around your home to close out the summer and prepare for fall.
As you are looking around your home and putting away the pool toys, cleaning the last of the beach towels, and packing up the camping gear – make sure you don’t ignore your plumbing system.
End of summer plumbing maintenance is an important part of keeping your home in good condition and making sure that your home is ready for the heavy rains of the fall.
Here are just a few of the plumbing maintenance checks that you should do around your home during these end of the summer weeks:
- Having a sump pump is an important part of keeping your home protected from water damage and flooding. However, if your sump pump becomes clogged during the summer months with dirt or debris, it will not work when the fall rains arrive.
- Look around your home and check for any leaks. These are the sneaky part of plumbing malfunctions as they can go on for a long period of time before you even know they are happening.
- If you have a septic system make sure to call for inspection at least one time per year. When the technician comes out he or she can let you know if draining the tank is recommended.
Follow these tips for end of summer plumbing maintenance and keep your home plumbing system in top working condition all year round. The maintenance that you do during these transition times of the year is important to the overall maintenance of your home and plumbing system.
