Cooling and Heating Yuma Since 1955

With summer upon us, there’s no time like the present to hit the beach or just enjoy some time outside. Between vacation planning and thinking about all the things you want to do this summer; you don’t need to worry about clogged pipes ruining your fun. Check out three easy ways you can help prevent clogged pipes in Somerton, AZ.

1. Keep an Eye on Your Garbage Disposal

While a kitchen garbage disposal is a great tool to have on hand, it’s also one you need to exercise caution when using. Don’t put rib bones and other barbecue delights down the drain. You’ll also want to avoid draining grease or oil. All of those substances can get through the disposal and clog somewhere down the line.

2. Watch Your Laundry

Between vacations and playing outside, you probably do more laundry in summer than you do any other time of the year. Unfortunately, running your washing machine more often means that you will be that much more likely to have problems with the drain line. The most common reasons that washing machine drain lines get clogged are problems with the filter or the drain pump. Clean your lint trap often and look for signs of clogged drain lines.

3. Don’t Forget the Sewer

Somerton summers can bring a lot of rain and storms that damage your sewer line. It’s common for storms to wash tree branches and other debris into the sewers where they lodge in your pipes. You can take a look at the sewer line after each storm and make sure you note any signs of a clogged line.

You don’t need to spend a lot of time worrying about your pipes and what to do if a clog happens. Contact us at Quick Refrigeration at the first sign of a clog to get the professional plumbing repair you need.
