Fall Plumbing Maintenance Tips

We are ready to embrace the new, fall season! With pumpkin spice, apple picking, and Halloween on our minds, your plumbing maintenance might fall to the wayside. However, when you’re proactively caring for your system you can prevent plumbing problems down the line. Here are a few plumbing maintenance tips to help you keep your home in tip-top shape through the fall months ahead.

Fall Plumbing Tips:

  • Watch How You Dispose of Pumpkin Pulp – It’s time for pumpkin everything! But if you plan on carving a jack-o-lantern this year, make sure that you aren’t putting any pumpkin pulp down your drains! Pulp can clog and damage your drains and your garbage disposal if you have one in your home.
  • Replace Old Fixtures – Now is the perfect time to switch the focus from outdoor remodeling to indoor updates. A simple way to update the look and feel of your home this fall is by updating your old plumbing fixtures! Swap out those old shower heads and kitchen faucets for new, water-efficient models.
  • Finally Fix Those Plumbing Leaks – Have you been putting off fixing that annoying, leaky faucet? Now is the perfect time to finally fix those pesky leaks!
  • Perform Water Heater Maintenance – It’s important to perform annual maintenance on your water heater. This will help increase your water efficiency and save you money in the long run!
