Summer plumbin', had me a blast. Summer plumbin', happened so fast...




When the Texas heat cranks up and the sun's blazing high, our pipes and plumbing face a unique set of challenges. As we channel our inner Danny and Sandy from "Grease," let's dive into some fun and essential tips to keep your home's plumbing cool and trouble-free this summer!



1. "Tell me more, tell me more!" - Inspect Your Sprinkler System

Just like the budding romance of summer, your sprinkler system needs some love too! After a dormant winter, give it a thorough inspection. Check for any leaks, broken heads, or uneven water distribution. Ensuring your sprinkler system is in tip-top shape not only keeps your lawn lush but also conserves water – a crucial resource during those scorching Texas months.



2. "Summer days, drifting away..." - Mind the Heat and Your Water Heater

While you're basking in the sun, your water heater is working overtime to maintain hot water. However, with temperatures already high, you can lower your water heater's temperature setting. This reduces energy consumption and prevents scalding – no one wants a hot shower in 100-degree weather!



3. "Tell me more, tell me more!" - Unclog Those Drains

Summer often means more outdoor activities and, consequently, more dirt and debris making their way into your home. From mud-streaked clothes to sandy feet, it’s easy for drains to get clogged. Regularly clean your drains and consider using strainers to catch debris. A little maintenance goes a long way in avoiding those pesky clogs!



4. "He ran by me, got my suit damp" - Pool Time Perks and Precautions

If you're lucky enough to have a pool, it's a summer sanctuary. But remember, maintaining pool plumbing is crucial. Regularly check for leaks and ensure your pool pump and filters are functioning correctly. Properly balanced chemicals not only keep the water clear but also protect your plumbing from corrosion.



5. "Tell me more, tell me more!" - Garbage Disposal Duty

With summer cookouts in full swing, your garbage disposal sees more action. To keep it running smoothly, avoid putting hard, fibrous, or starchy waste down the drain. Things like corn husks, watermelon rinds, and potato peels can cause blockages. Instead, compost or dispose of them in the trash. A little ice and citrus peel can also help clean and deodorize your disposal – keeping it fresh as a summer breeze!



6. "Summer fling, don't mean a thing!" - Watch for Water Pressure Woes

High temperatures can lead to increased water usage, which might result in lower water pressure. If you notice a drop, check for leaks or mineral buildup in your pipes. Sometimes, a simple pressure regulator adjustment can make all the difference.

As the lyrics go, "summer days drifting away, to uh-oh those summer nights," let's ensure your summer plumbin' memories are filled with fun and not frustration. With a bit of proactive care, your plumbing will run smoothly, allowing you to focus on enjoying everything this sunny season has to offer in the Lone Star State.

So, grab a lemonade, hum your favorite "Grease" tune, and keep these tips in mind for a cool, carefree summer!
