KB Plumbing Spring Season Tips

With Spring in full bloom and summer right around the corner, KB Plumbing has a few tips and tricks to prep your home while you hit the pool and plan vacation. Here are ten recommendations to keep in mind:

  1. There may be more water infiltration in your house and taking care of your external French drains could be a top priority.

  2. No need to stay cold in the pool. We can install your pool heater and get you back in the water in no time!

  3. As you start to plan those spring and summer vacations, don’t forget to call your local water company to have them shut off your water while you’re gone. It’s a great way to save money and resources.

  4. Toilet flushing slow but you don’t see a clog? Sometimes there’s blockage farther down the line. Let one of our experienced plumbers troubleshoot for you and get your bathroom back to working properly.

  5. Be sure to clean your gutter and down spouts for debris that may have accumulated during fall and spring. You’ll want to clean those waterways to prevent flooding in your yard and to prevent gutters from collapsing if you own an older home.

  6. Check your water heater for leaks or corrosion! KB plumbing can inspect and replace water heaters.

  7. Remove obstruction from your sprinkler systems so that water can reach your yard properly. This avoids water accumulation while saving money on water.

  8. Inspect your hoses for expansion.

  9. As you spring clean, check for hidden leaks under your kitchen, bathroom or utility sink. A pipe may need to be tightened, and you will avoid mold growth.

  10. Inspect your plumbing vent pipes. Bird nests or other debris can clog up your plumbing vent pipes and leave your plumbing fixtures draining at a slow pace.
