Utilize These Drain Maintenance Tips This Summer

alpha plumbing drain maintenance tipsThe summertime is arguably the most ideal time to complete drain maintenance tasks around your home. Continue reading to learn the most crucial drain maintenance tips to consider for the upcoming summer.

Consider A Drain Strainer For Your Showers And Bathtubs

This is a sensible and straightforward procedure as part of your preventive drain maintenance that will make your life easier while also extending the life of your drains. Drain filters are ideal for sinks, bathtubs, showers, and floor drains because they prevent hair and other things from flowing down the drain and causing major clogs and pipe damage.

Remove Debris From Gutters 

Not only will this lessen the likelihood of problems with your home’s gutters, but it will also reduce the likelihood of anything wrong going into your outdoor drains and clogging them.

Have Your Area Inspected For Leaks

Believe it or not, the fall is a terrible period for plumbing leaks. Even if you don’t believe leaks are an issue, it’s a good idea to check for leaks and cracks at least once or twice a year. A summer drain maintenance checkup and cleaning service like this could save your drains in the autumn and winter. As always, you can rely on the knowledgeable staff at Alpha Plumbing for all of your drain maintenance needs. 

A Perimeter Drain Inspection 

Blocked perimeter drains can cause serious problems, from basement floods to foundation issues. We can inspect your home for leaks giving you the peace of mind you deserve.

Consider Installing A Backwater Valve

If you reside where summer storms overwhelm storm drains and cause sewer line difficulties, a backwater valve is a valuable addition to a floor drain. This is a prudent investment that can protect your property from significant damage.
