There are several maintenance tips for plumbing in the spring for your York home. The first tip is to make sure that you fix all of the leaks that may have occurred over the winter. To find out if you have a leak, you can turn all of the water in the home off and check the water meter to see what it says. Wait for a few hours and check the meter again. If it has moved, you may have a leak in the home.
The second tip is to do maintenance on the sewer and drain line. This means that you are going to need to check all of the drains to make sure that they have strainers. This is the best way to prevent any debris from clogging up the drain lines. You may want to schedule an inspection of the sewer line. A video of the sewer line inspection will be able to help you to see any of the small issues before they become a bigger problem.
The third tip is to make sure that all of the plumbing systems are used on a regular basis. Turn on your faucets and water valves under the sinks and toilets. This will help to you to prevent the systems from sticking when they are not used.
The fourth tip is to maintain your water heater. This means that you are going to need to drain out a few gallons of water from the tank to help to remove any of the sediment. This will reduce the efficiency of the heat so it can shorten the life of the water heater. It is best to look at the instructions from the manufacturer of the water heater based on the make and model of your water heater.
