The Weather & Your Plumbing

The sad truth is that we never have control over what new seasons may bring us in terms of weather. The forces of nature can bring up many problems for the average homeowner. Many times, the weather outside can ultimately affect your plumbing inside!

Snow

Harrisburg averages around 26 inches of snow a year and drops down to a chilly 22 degrees! When temperatures hit these lows, snow and ice can spell disaster for your plumbing. Common plumbing issues that can occur during excess snowfall:

  • Frozen Pipes – Once it starts getting chilly, make sure to get your home’s plumbing system checked. Regular maintenance ensures any pipes that may be subject to freezing are protected! If your system becomes frozen, ensure that you turn off the main water valve and contact us! If left unmanaged, these pipes can burst when frozen and cause damage to your home or foundation.
  • Water Heater Failure – During the colder winter months, our water heaters work overtime. On average, water heaters last for about ten years. Make sure to have this replaced, if needed, before the colder months. If your water heater is having issues, give us a call!
  • Clogged DrainsMost clogged drains happen during winter. Not only because they are being used more frequently due to the holidays, but because they also clog more quickly when the temperatures are on the colder side.
  • Septic Tank Bursts – In frigid weather, the line from your home and your septic tanks can freeze. There are also instances where the tank may explode! A snow cover for your tank can add an extra layer of protection for this common problem.

Rain

When it comes to rain, Harrisburg has more than enough. Harrisburg averages around 42 inches of rainfall per year. Annually, the United States only receives around 38 inches! Rain can lead to numerous plumbing issues, such as:

  • Shifting of Underground Pipes – Underground pipes can shift because of excess amounts of water in the soil. In turn, these shifts can put increased pressure on pipes and cause them to burst. Dirt and debris can even enter your system if the pipes have cracks. If you believe this may be the case, give us a call!
  • Blocked Drains & Clogged Pipes – When there is a significant runoff of water, it can collect various items such as dirt, rocks, and leaves. These collections can lead to various drain blockages, as they’re incapable of collecting large volumes of water and debris. Anything that flows through may get stuck and clog a pipe. The clog can then lead to disastrous results. We always recommend keeping your pipes and gutters clear of debris year-round.
  • Overworking Sump Pump – Basements can flood easily during rainy seasons. Sump pumps work around the clock to keep the water out to prevent flooding. Always ensure your sump pump is in working order. Many times, excess rain can overload a sump pump, which causes a flood!
