As winter fades, it’s time to start thinking about getting your outdoor entertainment space ready for spring and summer fun. That means thinking about upgrades and working toward your dream backyard, terrace or patios, but it also means making sure everything is still safe to use after the long New York winter. Here are some tips from Petri Plumbing & Heating, your neighborhood Brooklyn plumbing experts, for making your outdoor space a destination this year.
If you have exterior plumbing or electrical infrastructure, now’s the time to make sure it’s all safe to start using again in the spring. Make sure to check for cracked or broken pipes before turning the valves back on inside your home, and be sure to have your natural gas lines inspected for leaks or damage before turning on a grill.
Speaking of gas-powered grills, they make great additions to any outdoor space in the borough, as long as they meet the city’s code requirements: gas grills need to be installed by a New York-certified master plumber, be ten feet away from anything that can catch fire, and have easy access to a fire extinguisher, water or sand supply.
If you can’t install a grill, why not consider an outdoor wet bar instead? They’re the perfect companion to a hot New York summer, and with some help from Petri Plumbing & Heating, can turn your backyard or terrace into your friends’ favorite hangout.
With over a century of experience as Brooklyn and Manhattan’s neighborhood plumbers, Petri knows how to make your outdoor entertainment space the best it can be. Even better, we can make sure your space is designed according to New York’s strict fire and plumbing codes, avoiding costly headaches in the future.
