With the kids out of school and family visiting from afar, summer is a busy season for your home’s plumbing! When family and friends are over for a cookout, the last thing you need is a clogged drain, smelly kitchen sink, and toilet issues. In fact, for drain cleaning and leak repairs, you’ll want an educated and skilled plumber on your side. Here are five tips that will help keep things running smoothly in this hot weather.
- Unclog Your Pipes
We all know that clogged pipes are inconvenient any time of the year, but summertime brings an added layer of frustration when you can’t use your kitchen sink or bathroom because they’re backed up. But don’t worry! The experts at Avis will get things running smoothly again. Call the professionals to eliminate pesky clogs from pipes, tubs, and sinks. Don’t waste money on Drano and other chemicals. They often do more harm than good, while being ineffective against stubborn drain issues.
- Check for Leaks
Hidden leaks are one of the most common causes of water damage, so it’s essential to have an expert check your home and identify any potential problem areas. From faucets in kitchens and bathrooms to pipes underneath sinks – we can stop them before they become serious problems. Also, investing time into routine maintenance can help avoid costly repairs in the future. So get started today with our services at Avis.
- Guard Your Garbage Disposal
You might be surprised to learn that not all waste is eligible for elimination through your garbage disposal. To avoid jams and clogs, don’t place fruits or vegetables with strings like banana peels and celery down the disposal. Grease and fatty meats are also a “no-go”. The best rule of thumb is to avoid placing fats, oils, and grease down the disposal. When these substances cool down, they harden on the inside walls of your pipes, causing clogs that build up over time.
- Summer Ready Filtration
When you’re sweaty and tired after a long day in the sun, nothing beats coming inside to a nice glass of filtered water. But homeowners in Orange County may not even realize what problems might be lurking in their drinking and bathing water. You might consider installing an entire-house filter that will provide better quality water for all uses. Avis can help you make an informed decision about a whole-house water filtration system that keeps you and your family healthy.
- Endless Hot Showers
Imagine waiting for what feels like a lifetime for a family member to get out of the shower, only to realize they used all the hot water. Frustrating, right? This is a common issue with tanked water heaters. You definitely don’t need this problem during the hot summer days. So, consider going tankless! This system can heat water as it moves across the exchanger, heating it without requiring storage of it like with a conventional water heater. Since there’s no standing supply of hot water to be depleted, it doesn’t “run out” of hot water.
