Spring is right around the corner, which means you’re probably thinking of everything that needs to be done to freshen up your home. Is a plumbing checkup on your to-do list? If not, it should be! After all, this is one of the most vital systems in your home. Here at Delk Plumbing, your local plumbing repair service, we believe your pipes, pumps, and fixtures should be a top priority this spring. Here are four maintenance tips to help you prevent plumbing problems this spring:

  1. Check your sump pump – If you have a sump pump, have it inspected by a plumbing repair service to make sure everything is working as it should. Ignoring a sump pump can lead to disastrous (and costly) results. Prevent a sump pump situation by calling us.
  2. Test your faucets and drains – Take time to walk around your home and test your faucets and drains. Is water draining slowly in your shower and sinks? Are there spurts and sputters of water coming from your faucets? If you notice any problems with the sinks, tubs, and showers around your home, call us to fix these plumbing issues.
  3. Look for minor and major leaks – Check each room in your home to look for signs of a plumbing leak. Catching one early can help you avoid major repair expenses down the road. If you can’t see an obvious leak but suspect you have one, call us right away. We’ll give your home a thorough inspection in order to find and repair leaks in your walls, attic, basement, or crawlspace.
  4. Inspect your tankless water heater – Finally, take time to inspect your tankless water heater. As an expert in tankless water heater installation and repair, we’ll make sure your water heater is ready to handle your family’s needs during the busy spring season.
