Greenville, SC (PRWEB) March 21, 2014
The temperatures are starting to rise as winter is coming to an end and spring is making its arrival. GS Plumbing is marking the start of spring by recommending its customers check their hose bibs for leaks and their sump pumps for any problems as a result of the cold winter weather.
GS Plumbing says that hose bibs should be “tuned up” and checked for leaks. This is because washers may have gone bad over the winter. If a hose bib drips or water is leaking the first time a hose bib is turned back on, there may have been a pipe that froze and broke during the cold weather.
With the potential for heavy rains in the spring, homeowners should make sure their sump pumps are working properly. Sump pumps, when working properly, remove water that has accumulated in a basin found in basements. Sump pumps will send water away from the house to a drain or well.
GS Plumbing also recommends making sure gutters and downspouts are cleaned out to prevent clogging, which leads to water damage and mold.
GS Plumbing can also help those with clogged and slow-running drains as they provide a product that is used on these drains on a monthly basis to prevent clogging. It’s a natural bacterium that eats the grease, soap and grime that hair and debris stick to. This product is completely safe for all plumbing systems and the environment.
