The follow are some tips for you to help minimize plumbing problems this summer:
- Stand straddled over the toilet and rock back and forth on each foot. If the floor feels spongy, it could be rotting or weakened.
- Check the date on your water heater. The first four numbers of the serial number are the month and year. If your heater is over 15 years old you should consider replacing it.
- Check to see how fast the toilet flushes
While these three tips can help you in the future, it is important for you to remember that, the best defense to ensure your plumbing systems are running properly is to schedule annual maintenance inspections.
