It’s officially Spring! While you start putting together your checklist of spring cleaning chores to tackle this season, you should add a plumbing check-up to the list as well! Making sure your plumbing is in perfect condition is a great addition to the rest of your spring cleaning this year. Here are a few plumbing projects for you to take care of this spring.
Install New Fixtures
If you’ve been meaning to replace showerheads, toilets, faucets, sinks, etc. now is the time to do so! Replacing these fixtures will not only give your home an updated beautiful look but they will also help your plumbing run smoothly. Sometimes old plumbing fixtures can crack and rot without many signs that those things are happening. If you think your fixtures are old and need to be updated, contact Elite Plumbing and heating today!
Inspect Your Pipes
Another task you should do this spring is to inspect your pipes! It’s hard to tell if pipes need to be replaced or not so it’s best to have a professional come in to inspect. Getting new pipes are fixing your current ones can result in better water pressure, clear beautiful water, and no more loud water sounds.
Flush Your Water Heater
Water heaters usually last around 8-12 years. However, if you keep up with the maintenance of your water heater they can last for far longer. It is suggested to flush your water heater once a year to remove any particles that will affect the way your water heater runs. If you think you’re in need of a new water heater then contact Elite Plumbing and Heating!
Clean Your Drains
Spring is a great time to clean out your drains because everything is starting to grow! When roots in the ground grow they could grow into your sewer system which would lead to pipe blockage. Take this time to snake through your sinks, toilets, and shower drains as well to remove any blockages or dirt particles.
Fix Up Your Dishwasher and Garbage Disposal
Dishwashers and garbage disposals are appliances that usually make our lives easier. Because of this, it’s important to regularly check on them so that you don’t run into a problem in the future. Keeping up with the maintenance of these also helps them last longer and run better.
