Don’t flush your money down the toilet this summer with these tips from plumbing experts.

A rise in temperature usually means a rise in water usage and utility costs for businesses. As Florida’s hot summer months approach, MaintenX International wants to help local companies save on their water bills this summer. The company’s plumbing experts are here to help you stop flushing profits down the drain.

“With each new season comes a different challenge for a facility’s plumbing system. This is especially true for the hot and humid summer months,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX’s VP of Business Development. “It’s important to provide your plumbing system with proper maintenance to achieve the highest level of efficiency. This will not only make sure everything flows smoothly, but it will also keep more money in your pocket.”

For more than 30 years, MaintenX and its network of highly trained technicians have helped all kinds of businesses with their plumbing systems. Below are the company’s top plumbing tips:

1.    Invest in a Preventative Maintenance Program
It pays to have a thorough preventative maintenance program. Simple plumbing maintenance, like fixing leaking faucets, draining water heaters and snaking sewer lines, will help safeguard against system failure and other preventable plumbing problems. Not only will this keep your system working at peak performance, it will save you buckets on your water bill.

2.    Lower Your Water Heater Temperature
Dropping your water heater’s temperature a few degrees can help save energy. It’s not necessary to lower the temperature dramatically. Setting the temperature around 120 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal for the summer. This will offset the seasonal temperature shift and shave off some savings on your utility bill.

3.    Watch Out for Roots
Make sure to have your sewer line checked. If you have an abundance of landscaping and trees on your facility’s property, growing roots can cause problems. Tree roots are known to grow toward sources of nutrients, such as cracked or leaking sewer systems. Especially after lots of spring rainfall, get your lines checked.

4.    Rely on Rain
Consider rainwater reclamation systems. This solution allows you to harvest rainwater and reuse it for landscaping purposes. Not only is this an excellent economical solution, it is also an environmentally-friendly way to keep the company’s outdoor property looking green during scorching summer months.
