Summer Plumbing Problems and How to Avoid Them

The summer can be a time of relaxation and rest. However, without keeping an eye on these common issues the summer can turn into a plumbing nightmare. Use these tips and tricks in your home or summer home so you can avoid several plumbing issues and return to relaxing under the sun.

  • When having company or family over make sure to have trash cans stationed in all of the bathrooms of the house. People often throw paper towels, tissues, q-tips, and many other things in the toilet. This will result in a clogged drain that no plunger will be able to fix.
  • When hosting a barbecue make sure to not flush any food, garbage, meat products, bones, or anything of that nature down the kitchen sink. This will also result in a clogged drain. Another tip which should be followed all year is to never flush grease down the sink, which will solidify when it cools and will clog your drains as well.
  • Make the switch from a propane gas grill to a natural gas line. Natural gas lines are much more efficient and a cleaner energy resource. Natural gas is ⅓ of the price of propane for each BTU. Never worry about running out of propane during a BBQ again! Gas lines can also be piped to an outdoor fireplace as well, so you wouldn’t have to worry about continually stoking the fire. You can kick your feet up and relax!
  • When vacationing for long periods of time make sure to turn down your water heater to save energy. Make sure to also keep track of the water pressure in the house or think about purchasing a regulator. The system will remain pressurized and without water being used in the house. The pressure will continue to build up which may result in a complete blow out or pinhole leaks in your water line.
  • After the rain covered months of Spring, trees experience a period of growth. Tree roots will spread in search for a source of water, and your water lines could be in the way. Your water lines may even become a source of water if there is a leak.

5-STAR GOOGLE REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

Everyone at Zeek Plumbing was so kind and helpful. My heated driveway had a broken pipe but Steve, Rich, and the whole team went above and beyond to repair this as quickly as possible. I highly recommend their business for any plumbing issues you may have.

I’m a new homeowner and didn’t know what to expect when I had Zeek over to help me with a problem I had with a new washing machine connection when I moved in. Not only did they help with the connection, they spent time to explain my heating system to me. Now, two months later they have been to my home for two other problems that came about. While I wasn’t excited about having to spend money, they kept my budget in mind and were more than fair. I have nothing to but good things to say about their work, the people in their office and the people that have visited my home. I recommend them highly.

Steve and his team are the best of the best. He was so responsive and so caring!!!! Within a very short amount of time he sent us 2 of his team members (Rich and Oliver) who were outstanding. Extremely competent, knowledgeable, smart, fast, polite, and caring. We recently moved into the area and are so blessed to have found them. Highly recommend them!!!

We called Zeek Plumbing when our office toliet backed up. They came right out and took care of the problem in a very professional manner. They did have to make a second trip, but did so promptly and got the problem solved. We would definitely recommend Zeek Plumbing.

I had a sewer line leaking in the basement where flooring and part of a wall had to be removed. They also had to remove a toilet and replace that connection to the sewer line. .The pipes were repaired, concrete repaired and toilet reinstalled. This was a big job. They knew exactly what they were doing and the repair is all done. They were easy to schedule with, courteous and professional. Highly recommend!!

We woke up this morning to water pouring out of our toilet, all of over the floor, down the to the basement, we were PANICKED! I called Zeek Plumbing and Steve was able to identify the problem over the phone and dispatch someone to come immediately to help us fix the issue. Within an hour everything was fixed and in working order. We're so grateful for the responsiveness and professionalism of his team.
