Christmas is almost here and many are planning to get away and visit family and friends. Don’t forget to protect your plumbing and home from preventable plumbing leaks. Before you leave, check your supply lines and look for old, rusty, or damaged pipes. If you see any issues, it’s best to hire an Orlando plumber to make a minor repair. This is better than having a pipe or supply line burst and flood your home when you’re away from home. Know where your main water shut off valve is and if you can’t find one or it is not operating properly, have it fixed or replaced by a reputable contractor. Shutting off your water when going away for an extended period of time is probably one of the smartest things you as a homeowner can do to protect your home. Just remember when shutting off the water to your house to shut the breaker to your water heater in order to prevent damage to your water heater. Taking small steps can save you a lot of money, time, and stress. Also, if you are staying in town for the holidays, remember to check your septic system if you are having a lot of company. This can overload your septic system and cause unwanted sewer backups. If it’s been more than 2 years since your septic was cleaned and pumped out, we would suggest having it done before your company arrives. Also, if your kitchen is draining a little slow, have it cleaned before the overload of use from holiday cooking.
