Residential Home Plumbing – The Outdoors Considerations
Summertime is a wonderful time of the year where barbecues and cookouts abound and kids play outside well into the evening hours. That said there are some worthwhile tips to consider when it comes to the outdoors and your residential home plumbing system. For example, sprinkler systems are often problematic if they are not properly maintained. That is why it is so crucial to continually inspect and check your sprinklers throughout the year and especially during the summer when they are used most often. Whether sprinklers are located in your backyard or front yard or both, during the summer sprinklers can be expected to work overtime.
Areas Where They Can Easily Become Damaged
Water Leaks are one of the biggest complaints when it comes to home sprinkler systems. They typically will leak for a few primary reasons. The first reason is that they simply are used a lot during the summer. This creates wear and tear ultimately resulting in leaks. In addition, sprinklers are located in areas where they can easily become damaged. Whether it is a lawnmower blade or kids playing in the yard, sprinklers routinely become damaged. Perhaps one of the best ways to protect any sprinkler system is simply have a professional do a complete inspection on an annual basis.
Proper Water System Functionality
Finally, checking your outdoor water supply during the summer is a smart step to take. It’s an easy process and only involves turning the water on at a faucet or outlet inside the home and then going outside to inspect for possible leaks. Another way to check for proper water system functioning is to look at the overall pressure of the water coming out of the faucets in your home. If the pressure is surprisingly low there could be a problem. Pipes typically do a good job of containing water but they do leak from time to time.
