Keep the Plumbing in Your Brooklyn Home Performing
During the Brooklyn summer, staying cool can take a bite out of your budget, so who wants to add unnecessary plumbing expense on top of monthly energy bills? Keep your plumbing operating at peak performance with these suggestions from your friends at Petri Plumbing.
Check for Leaks
Watch for leaks in your plumbing system. Even small ones can add up to big costs. Because it can be difficult to spot some leaks, check your water meter when no water is being used in the house. If it’s running, there is a leak somewhere in the system. Call the experts at Petri Plumbing to track it down.
Take Care of Appliances
To avoid a big mess, inspect the hoses on your washing machine for cracks, bulges and leaks. Replace any hoses that are compromised before they burst or call our experts for help.
One of the most common plumbing problems, with a hidden cost, is toilet trouble. If you hear water continually running in the toilet tank after it has been flushed, there is a problem with the hardware. It may not seem like much, but a constantly running toilet will waste as much money in the long-run as it wastes water.
Sewer line backups are a messy and expensive problem to deal with during the summer. Rain can enter cracked pipes resulting in a backup. Encroaching tree roots can break the pipes, too. A video inspection of your sewer lines can spot any potential issues, so problems can be corrected as inexpensively as possible.
