Don’t Let Your Plumbing Make a Mess of Your Summer Plans

Tap Into 3 Things You Must Do!

Florida’s summer heat is rough on your home—particularly for your plumbing. However, there are some proactive, preventive plumbing measures you can take to prepare your plumbing for summertime.

When you need plumbing services in Land O’ Lakes, FL, or nearby, Cornerstone Pros is the team to call. While we’re here for all of your plumbing needs, that doesn’t mean we are rooting for your plumbing to give you trouble. In fact, that’s the last thing we want. That’s why, if and when an issue arises, we work diligently to get your home going with the flow again.

But in order to protect you from messy plumbing matters, we need your help. Here’s what we need you to do.

Inspect for Leaks

While the temperatures in our area don’t dip too low during the winter, they do drop enough to affect your plumbing. If you don’t address any plumbing damage or issues, Florida’s extreme summer heat will only make the problem worse—particularly leaks.

Before the heat arrives, you’re going to want to inspect your entire plumbing system for leaks. This includes toilets, bathtubs, showers, faucets, sinks, spigots, plumbing fixtures, pipes and other plumbing components.

Adjust Your Water Heater’s Temperature

Hot water is a necessity all year round. But you may not need (or want) your water to be as hot during the summertime as you do in the winter. Easy fix! As a homeowner, you have the power to adjust your water heater’s temperature to accommodate your preferences. Even better—bumping the max temperature down a few degrees helps you cash in on monthly savings with lower utility bills all summer long.

Like saving money? When you go away, your water heater doesn’t take a vacation. It continues heating and reheating the water in its tank the entire time, leaving you to pay for hot water that you won’t be using. Doesn’t make sense, right? That’s why, if you’re going on vacation—whether it’s for a few days or a lot longer—we highly recommend you switch your water heater to its “vacation” or “low” setting. If yours doesn’t have this setting, you can turn the heat down OR you can turn it off.

Get an In-Between-the-Pipes Look at Your Plumbing

Ongoing plumbing problems? Figure out what’s going on by scheduling a plumbing camera inspection!

Through this high-tech visual inspection technique, our plumbers will snake a specialized camera through your water and sewer pipes to see (literally) what’s going on.

After we’ve pieced together a complete picture of your plumbing system, we’ll share the findings with you, providing you with details about any problems (or potential problems) we saw, such as calcium deposits, cracks or breaks within the water line. We’ll then recommend the best solution for you and, if applicable, provide you with an upfront estimate for:

  • Drain cleaning
  • Hydro-jetting
  • Slab leak & other plumbing repairs
  • Whole-home repiping
  • New water heaters
  • Water purification & filtration systems
  • … And more!
