Spring Maintenance, Inspection for Home Plumbing Systems
While it's still a bit wet and windy out there, we are definitely headed towards spring. With the change in seasons, it's also a good time to do a spring checkup on your home's plumbing systems.
It's better to be preventive and inspect your systems now than to wait until you need them or until something breaks or leaks. For example, right now, you're probably not using your landscape irrigation system, but two months from now, when it's hot and dry, you don't want to turn your system on, only to find out it's sprung a leak or spigots aren't working.
Here is a checklist of common items that should be inspected or serviced every spring:
These are all items you can do yourself to make sure your plumbing systems are in good working order. However, just as you have your car inspected for wear and tear when you bring it in for an oil change, consider having a professional plumber such as M&M Plumbing inspect your systems. It's inexpensive, will save you time, and could save you money in the long run if problems are found.
