In order to keep your plumbing working appropriately and protect your home from clogged drains and water damage, keep reading because we have compiled a list of the Top 5 Spring Plumbing Tips that shall help keep your plumbing in good working order.
1. Kitchen, bathroom, laundry – Inspect all taps & flexi hoses in and around your home, have a visual check of your Flexi hoses for rust, leaks and cracks, run your hand over the Flexi hose to ensure there are no splits or signs of wear & tear.
Check for slow draining shower, sinks & toilets – test your toilets for leaks. A toilet leak can massively increase your water bills! In the interest of saving water and money, it’s important to check your toilet for leaks. The easiest way to do that is by dropping some food coloring in your toilet tank, and checking if the water gets coloured. If you see colored water in your toilet bowl, then you surely have a leak
2. Be Mindful of Any Water Leaks From Sprinklers and Outdoor Taps it’s easy for outdoor taps and sprinklers to freeze and fracture during winter, which is why when the spring season hits, you need to keep an eye out for leaks linked to damaged pipes and outdoor taps.
3. Gutters, downpipes and drains tend to collect debris, leaves and twigs over autumn and winter. When spring arrives, you must clear out your gutters and downspipes to prevent clogging and water damage to your home
