Happy 4th of July

With the holidays just around the corner, it’s likely your home will see an influx of guests over the this weekend or this summer, which can put a strain on your plumbing system. Take a few minutes this week to prepare your home before the hustle and bustle of the holidays begin.

If you’re traveling for the holidays

  • If you will be leaving your home for an extended period of time, consider turning off your water to avoid pipe problems, such as freezing.
  • Wrap pipes to prevent freezing.
  • Turn down your water heater to save energy while you’re gone.

If you’re entertaining for the holidays

  • Check your plumbing fixtures for leaks. This includes all sinks, toilets, tubs, washing machines and other plumbing fixtures.
  • Check for slow-draining sewers (the natural sign of a clog or problem).
  • Keep in mind what you shouldn’t pour down the drain – such as grease, food, household chemicals, etc.
