The changing seasons likely mean changing the use of the systems inside your home. This is especially the case with plumbing systems. For example, during even a normal summer, having the kids at home can mean the increased use of your septic system and water heater. Now, with the entire family spending more time at home, there’s probably more strain on the plumbing system than ever. Additionally, if you own a sprinkler system, the warm weather can mean a lot of time spent keeping the lawn irrigated.
For those and other reasons, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on how these systems are performing in your home. You may want to do a brief inspection of the plumbing lines, careful to watch for leaks, cracks, or other maintenance issues. Besides the potential for significant water loss, even a small leak – left unchecked – can do considerable damage to key parts of your house.
