Spring brings warm air, fresh flowers and…leaking pipes? With proper maintenance, you can enjoy the sunshine without worrying about your home’s plumbing. Here are a few tips you can try at home to prevent future plumbing problems:
- Check drains. Make sure your sinks and showers are draining properly and pour water into infrequently used drains to prevent odors.
- Inspect toilets. Check the tank and bowl for cracks or leaks. Add drops of food coloring to the toilet tank. If there is a leak, color will appear in the bowl within 30 minutes.
- Examine pipes. Pipes can freeze, crack and burst in the colder months. Checking them now could save you from leaks and floods later on.
- Test sump pump. Pour a few buckets of water into the sump pit to make sure the pump quickly turns on and removes the water.
