While winter is a cheerful season full of fun holidays and time with family, it is always exciting to look towards a colorful spring. With the new season approaching quickly, it may be a good idea to start getting your spring cleaning list in line.

Spring Season Plumbing Tips
Though a beautiful and lush season, spring can bring some unique plumbing problems of its own.
Make sure you do the following to stay prepared:
Remove debris from yard drains
Clear out gutters and downspouts to prevent clogging
Check faucets to ensure water flows normally (if not, a frozen pipe may have caused a crack)
Check all appliances to see if any leaks occurred in winter
Adjust the temperature setting on your water heater (keep it under 120°F)
Inspect all exposed pipes for damage from ice or snow
If you have a basement, consider putting in a flood alarm
While these seasonal tips can help you get your home back up to speed after the winter, there are also general tips that you can follow for your plumbing. It is always good to review your water usage and look for ways to cut back, especially before the hot summer season approaches. Maintain your pipes and drains by clearing out clogs from hair, soap, and other debris. You can also flush out drains using some homemade remedies we have mentioned before!
