Summer Means More Water Usage & Plumbing Issues

Increased Water Usage - Call Dixie
Summer is hard on home plumbing systems.
This is mostly a result of increased water usage. Kids are home from school for the summer, meaning they take more showers, flush the toilets more and turn on the tap for more glasses of water. Water usage increases also come as swimming pools are filled and maintained and lawns and flowers are watered.
While summer break is just about over for most school kids, it is a good time check out just how much wear and tear your plumbing has absorbed the past few months. When you add up the accumulative effect on your home’s pipes and fixtures, it can result in your plumbing system taking a real pounding. Problems can include leaky pipes/fixtures, running toilets and clogged garbage disposals and sewer lines. Water purification systems and water heaters can also suffer wear and tear due to higher demand.
