Friday, September 22nd marks the first official day of fall – that’s today! Your friendly Griffin plumbers are here to help prepare your home and business for the blustery season ahead. Read on for handy tips from Griffin’s top plumbing pros serving the Grover Beach community.
1. Gutter Check
Between falling leaves, persistent rain, and autumn winds, gutters can get filled with gunk fast! Debris buildup will inevitably lead to mold and pesky bugs – not to mention hazardous blockages in your sewer and drain lines. The friendly plumbing pros at Griffin can keep your gutters clear.
Although it rarely freezes here on the Central Coast, it’s smart to double-check that there are no cracks in your pipes.
Check your water heater temperature and set it at 120°F for optimum performance. It’s also a good idea to drain your water heater since sediment and rust can build up in the tank. If left unchecked, buildup can ultimately lead to tank failure. It’s a good idea to test it in general because you don’t want to find a problem when the weather turns cool.
4. Protect & Disconnect
Protect any exposed plumbing outside from harsh weather like wind and rain. It’s also important to disconnect any hoses from your exterior water valves, just to be safe.
5. Happy Hosts
Are you hosting a holiday gathering this year? Maybe a Halloween Monster Mash or Thanksgiving feast? Increased traffic often leads to pesky plumbing problems. Ensure all your indoor plumbing is in working order before a houseful of guests arrives! Did you know the day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday) is one of the busiest days of the year for plumbers? We bet you did.
6. Outsmart the Septic Tanks
During the busy fall months, more food in the drains and garbage disposal can spell plumbing trouble. Not to fear – Griffin Plumbing is here! We can pump your septic tank and clean your drains when you need it most.
