3 Plumbing Issues to Check Right Now

Plumbing Issues to Check Right Now

Boy, have we received tons of rain this summer! As long as the rain doesn’t turn into hail, flooding or high winds, is great for our grass and plants. However, rain can also bring some unpleasant effects as well. And, with the amount of damage water can cause, and rather quickly, we want to bring up 5 plumbing issues to check out right now.

  1. Sump pumps

The Denver area hasn’t historically been known for humidity and water, but the last few years have changed that. We have experienced flooding- whether freak rain storms to burn scar run off- and this has caused us to consider installing sump pumps. Sump pumps are designed to pump excess water from an indoor space back outside. Many Denver homeowners are considering them to protect their basements from flooding.

  1. Sprinklers and hoses

Turn on your hoses and sprinklers and walk around to look for areas of water shooting, dripping or running where it shouldn’t be. Check your basement, crawlspace and around the hose bib. Cold weather may have damaged your exterior pipes and many factors could have contributed to broken sprinkler systems including sprinkler heads broken off. Be sure to detach your hose before the first frost comes, in Denver, usually around Halloween.

  1. Sewer line & drains

Heavy rains don’t just bring grass growth, they bring root growth as well. Consider a main sewer line cleaning to clear the line of any root growth. French drains, as well as gutters and downspouts can clog with mud, leaves and other debris and could cause water to dam, creating big problems. Be proactive and save money and hassle by performing preventative rather than emergency plumbing issues.
