Look Out for Water Heater Leaks and Other IssuesWater heater issues are usually quite apparent. You will end up without hot water, or you’ll notice visible signs of leaks or damage quite readily. If you suspect that your water heater is having trouble, have our team of professionals come out and look. Remember, even though it seems counterintuitive, you most likely used your water heater more during the summer than during other seasons (except maybe during Winter).
Make Sure Your Faucets are Secured and Leak-FreeLeaking faucets waste water and increase your water bill for no good reason. If you have noticed any leaky or loose faucets or spigots in your home or business, then take care of them quickly. The longer you wait, the worse those problems will become. Moreover, since you more than likely used your faucets more this summer, now is an excellent time to ensure they are all in perfect working order.
Check to See if Your Toilet is Tightly SecuredOne major issue that our plumbers see during our end-of-summer plumbing checkups is a loose toilet. Your toilets shouldn’t wiggle and move when you sit on them. Instead, they should be tightly secured to the floor and plumbing they are attached to. If you notice a shakey or loose toilet, then contact the plumbing professionals here at Water Heaters Masters straight away.
