School’s out for the summer, which means your home is going to see more wear and tear. Because your kids are on summer break from school, they are home more often. Of course, the more they are home, the more water they use. This increased usage can result in your home’s plumbing system taking a beating during the summer months.
It’s a great idea to make sure your plumbing system is ready for an increased workload by having our experienced professionals give your plumbing a once-over. Pipes, drains, toilets and faucets require regular maintenance and service to ensure they are in good working order. Your home’s water heater needs to be inspected as well as it will come under attack with increased washing machine use and more showers.
Summertime also means it’s time to fire up the grill for backyard barbecues and cookouts. Getting your grill cleaned up and ready for use is a good idea and so is upgrading your grilling system. If you use a gas grill, consider upgrading by installing a dedicated gas line to your grill. A dedicated gas line can also be used to pump gas to fire pits and outdoor kitchens/stoves. The dedicated line offers a few big benefits: it will be more efficient in its usage and will also eliminate the need for messing with propane tanks, which need to be refilled periodically (often at the most inopportune times) and require maintenance of their own. Get it done sooner rather than later, and you will be ready to enjoy your summer holiday gatherings.
