By checking the bathroom, kitchen, appliances, equipment and more common areas, both within and outside the home, you can be prepared and help prevent any plumbing problems that occur. Just think of it as an extension of your spring cleaning project!

Check your drains, gutters and downspouts ? which should be clear and free of debris to ensure proper operation. Many regions of the country experience a large amount of rainfall this time of year and you want to make sure you?re ready. If you let the debris build up, gutters and drains can clog, causing water damage, leakage and mold growth ? not something you want to deal with!
Make sure your plumbing pipes and vents are clear of bird nests, leaves, sticks etc.

Check out the faucet for leaks ? this is especially common in colder climates where hoses have been left on the hose bib for the winter. If the water supply pipe has frozen the once frozen pipe can be expanded and may have cracked. This pipe will leak and should be replaced as soon as possible by your local plumber, before water damage can occur.

The most important thing you can do to keep your plumbing system safe this spring is to make sure your sump pump is ÿprimed and ready for some hard work. If you have not seen to your sump pump (do not worry ? you probably are not the only one), test it by pouring a few buckets of water into the sump pit. The pump should kick on in a few seconds, allow the flow of water and then turn itself off automatically. If it does not do it, call your local plumber and have the sump pump seen first hand ? before it completely burns out.

Check the faucet in the kitchen and bathroom for leaks. The improvements will help save water and money.

Make sure you have your filters on each drain. This is to prevent hair, soap and other substances that may blockyour drains.
