Extreme Heat Affects PlumbingThe summer months can bring about extremely hot and humid temperatures for you to endure. However, it’s not only your body temperature that may be affected by the heat, but your plumbing, as well. When the weather gets above a certain level, you may experience problems with certain parts of the plumbing in your home.

Clogged Toilets

It’s likely your children are out of school in the summer months and this means more trips to the bathroom. This will make it much easier for the toilets to be clogged than during the months when your children are in school and there are fewer people at home.

Expanding Pipes

When the weather gets to be extremely hot outside, this could cause the pipes in your home to expand and in some cases burst. If this happens to you, it will be necessary to replace any of the pipes that may have been affected.

Low Water Pressure

Extreme heat can have an impact on the water pressure in your home. If the pressure is much less than it normally is, this may make you feel frustrated. It’s important to call on the assistance of a professional to help fix this issue if it occurs during the summer months.

minor or major plumbing work

We have recently completed a remodel of an 80 year old house and we used Pratt Plumbing for all of the plumbing renovation. Pratt was great in all respects: their ideas, their work, their timeliness, their prompt attention to details and follow through all were and continue to be of the highest caliber. Their invoices are reasonable and we would recommend Pratt Plumbing to anyone in need of minor or major plumbing work.
