From clogged drains to leaky faucets and toilets that won’t stop running, there are many different problems that can develop throughout your home. One of the factors that can have the biggest impact on our plumbing systems is one that we have absolutely no control over: the weather. No matter what time of year it may be, the weather can really take a toll on the plumbing system and equipment that we rely on every day. Here is some information about the impact of the weather on plumbing from the professional plumbers at Pompeii’s Plumbing & Heating.
When most people think of the impact the weather has on their plumbing they think of long, cold winters. Here in Cleveland, we get our share of freezing weather, and that can create some serious problems if the water within your pipes should freeze. It is always a good idea to leave your water on just a trickle when the cold is extreme enough to freeze your pipes.
There is another way that this winter weather can impact your home and your plumbing, though, that many people overlook until it is too late.
During the snow melt or, for that matter, heavy rains at any time of the year it is possible for water to flood into the lower points of your home. When this happens it helps to have a reliable sump pump that you can count on to get the water back out of your home before damage is sustained. A sump pump must be professionally installed in your home so that it is positioned for maximum effectiveness. Should a sump pit need to be excavated we are the plumbers you can count on to do the job right.
