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.

Super Bowl Sunday morning, Zeek Plumbing didn't hesitate to respond when we called them for assistance. Our bathroom backed up and flooded our basement causing us to make an emergency request to them. They were at our home immediately and saved the day!
These guys were fantastic. Friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. They came to fix one problem and wound up fixing three. Price was extremely fair as well. I would recommend Zeke 100%

Tim from Zeek plumbing was fantastic! I had a leak in my basement and called Zeek and Tim came over the same day. He was courteous, neat and very professional. I will be sure to call them again should the need arise. I would highly recommend Tim and Zeek plumbing.
Needed rush service today and Zeek was able to deliver. Bill and Rich both got to the root of our leak and were able to fix it. Great service with great guys!!!
Zeek plumbing was great to work with when we were redoing our half bath. They actually rescued us from another plumber who left us mid-job. They were honest about when they would be able to come and arrived on time. They were very respectful towards me and checked in with me along the way about the progression of the job. They installed a sink and toilet and when we realized the toilet did’t have a seat, they went out and got one and came right back. They aren’t cheap but they do a really good job. They even came back a third time the same day when I called to tell them that the sink looked slightly crooked and they fixed it right away. I would definitely recommend them to a friend.
Excellent service! Had a problem with shower drain. Technician came and resolved within an hour, also tested for leaks. Courteous, respectful, normal, and offered decent pricing quotes on toilet installation. Local business that cares about quality of work and happy customers. Will definitely be using them in the future.
Angel & Oliver came yesterday to fix a clogged sink drain. They were so considerate of my napping 4-year-old grandson that the slept through their entire visit. They took care of the job quickly (and quietly), and worked extremely cleanly. I was quite impressed with their professionalism, their friendliness, and their consideration about nap-time. I highly recommend them.
