When the weather starts to change in California, one of the biggest plumbing problems that homeowners experience is with clogging and sewer lines backing up during rainstorms. Consider having your drains checked in the fall to make sure that they are ready for the weather.
Sewer Line Issues
Whether the problem with a sewer line starts in the come or backup comes from the city line because of rain, it is crucial to make sure that you have healthy plumbing to help keep sewage from coming into your home. If you have an older home, it is more likely that you can have problems with a sewer line because of its age and the type of piping. Having inspection and drain cleaning services can help you have peace of mind as the season’s change.
Slow Drains and Clogging
As people start to stay inside more often, a home’s plumbing system works harder. It is more likely that drains will have buildup and clogs that need service. If you can’t get the clog to move, then you may have a total clog or a problem with your sewer line. Drain cleaning can help clear clogs and buildup.
Water Heater Problems
Just like pipes working harder in the cooler months, water heaters also do. You may notice leaks or sounds coming from your water heater because of corrosion built up on the inside of a tank water heater. You may also have a heating element that goes out or a problem with your pilot light staying lit. These are common problems that tend to get worse as the water heater incurs higher usage.
More Calls for Emergency Plumbing Services
Emergency plumbing services go up in the fall and winter in California because people get busy and neglect home maintenance before the weather changes. Emergencies also occur because of storms or the age of equipment, such as a water heater, no longer working.
