Keeping the plumbing in your home in good shape may take a little bit of extra work. The summer months can be hard on your plumbing for a variety of reasons. Knowing some of the most common summer issues is sure to be helpful to you when you need to make repairs.
It’s likely that your home will be much more crowded during the summer months because of your kid being out of school for the summer. This means more use of your bathroom and toilet, and this can quickly translate into a clogged toilet area.
Be sure to talk to your kids about using less toilet paper when flushing to prevent this problem from occurring frequently.
