You may not know this, but extreme heat like we have during Texas summers can have a serious impact on your plumbing. Things like clogged drains, sinks, and toilets are much more prevalent in higher temperatures, and your plumbing system overall is more prone to leaking. You should also keep in mind that summer means more water use, which means more pipe use. If you think that your plumbing has been potentially affected by this summer’s high temperatures, don’t forget that your local team at bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of San Antonio can be there whenever you need us to take a look.

What Can Heat do to my Plumbing System?

Overall, during the summer, your home’s pipes are being worked a lot harder than throughout the rest of the year. The kids are home from school, you’re staying indoors, and your home is your sanctuary from the heat. Couple that with 100+ degree days, and you may run into some issues. With increased use comes more clogging of your sinks and toilets. We know – it’s not a glamorous subject! However, we offer emergency plumbing services and can get any issues fixed for you quickly and affordably.

Rigorous use of your pipes will lead to two possible plumbing inconveniences: leaks in your pipes and an increased water bill. It is important in the summer to conserve water, so make sure when your kids are done running through the sprinkler that you turn the water off completely. With everyone at home, keep in mind that you will probably be doing more dishes, more loads of laundry, and other chores which use a ton of energy and water. Leaks in your pipes come from both age and use, so if you see any sort of wet spots on your walls, in your bathroom, or anywhere else in your home, get it looked at by a professional immediately. Inattention will lead to bigger problems like water damage and mold.
