Here’s some information about getting your plumbing in order with your very own spring maintenance.
As Minnesotans, we know how risky it is to use the ‘Sp’-word… even this late in March. But even if it takes until mid-April, spring has to come eventually, and that means we have to prepare for it. So why wait? Even if it doesn’t feel much like spring now, there’s no better time than to kick off spring cleaning! Maybe our efforts will bring about the season through osmosis (hey, we can dream)!
We’ll grant you: when you think “spring cleaning”, your plumbing probably isn’t the first thing to come to mind. But it should be! Getting your plumbing ready for spring is a great way to prepare your home and yourself for the season. A little preventative maintenance now could save you a lot of time and money later. Here’s your step-by-step checklist for spring plumbing maintenance. Just check these boxes off one-by-one, and when you’re done your plumbing will be ready for spring. Whenever it comes.
Clear all the wintery debris out of your outdoor gutters, downspouts, and storm drains.
Make sure there’s nothing (a bird’s nest, floating garbage, etc.) blocking your ventilation pipes or chimney.
Check outdoor hoses and faucets for dripping or leaking, and make sure they’re working properly.
Move the sump pump’s hose to its appropriate location, so that it expels excess water far enough away from your home’s foundation.
Ensure that water drains away from your home, instead of building up on your roof or near your foundation. Check for sunken or flooded spots in your yard.
Bathrooms (Repeat for each!)
Run water in the sink and watch the pipes under the sink as the water flows to make sure pipe joints aren’t leaking.
After turning off the water, watch the faucet for a minute or two to make sure it isn’t dripping. Remember, even a dripping faucet can cost you a lot of water and money.
Fill the sink with water and then open the plug to allow it to drain. Check to make sure it’s draining quickly enough. If you think you have a clog, plunge or snake the drain.
Remove and clean out the p-trap of each sink drain. When replacing the p-trap, make sure it’s re-attached correctly. Run the water for a minute and make sure it isn’t leaking at the joints.
