Checking All of the Boxes

Hey everyone, Manny here from DrainPro Solutions! As we say goodbye to spring and welcome the warmer days, it’s the perfect time to talk about getting your home’s plumbing summer-ready. 

Many of us think about winterizing our plumbing, but summer brings its own set of challenges and opportunities for maintenance. From outdoor faucets to your home’s sprinkler systems, let’s dive into how you can ensure everything is in tip-top shape for the sunny days ahead.

Check and Repair Outdoor Faucets

One of the first steps in summer plumbing preparation is checking your outdoor faucets for leaks and damage. Winter can be tough on these fixtures, and a small drip can turn into a costly problem. To check them:

  • Turn the water on and place your thumb or a finger over the opening. If you can stop the flow of water, it might indicate low water pressure and a possible leak in the line.
  • Look for signs of water leaks on the exterior walls, which could suggest a failed washer or a more severe issue inside the wall.

If you find any issues, it might be a simple washer replacement, or you might need to call a professional if the problem seems more extensive.

Service Your Sprinkler System

Your sprinkler system has likely been dormant during the cooler months, so ensuring it’s ready for summer is crucial. A poorly maintained sprinkler system can waste water and damage your lawn and garden due to uneven watering.

  • Start by visually inspecting all sprinkler heads and replacing any that are damaged or clogged.
  • Run the system zone by zone, and watch for any sprinkler heads that don’t pop up or any uneven spray patterns.
  • Adjust the timers and settings on your system to reflect the needs of your lawn in summer—typically, early morning or late evening to prevent evaporation.

Ensure Swimming Pool Plumbing is Optimal

If you have a pool, you know it’s the centerpiece of summer fun, and its plumbing integrity is essential for clean and safe water. Before the season gets into full swing, make sure to:

  • Inspect the pool pumps and filters. Clean or replace filters as needed.
  • Check for leaks in and around the pool equipment. Look for wet spots or drips around the pump and filter system.
  • If you’re not confident in how to handle pool plumbing, consider a professional inspection. This can prevent issues down the line and keep your pool ready for a dive anytime.

Inspect Your Water Heater

Summer might reduce the demand for hot water, but it’s an excellent time to do some routine maintenance on your water heater.

  • Drain and flush the tank to remove sediment buildup, which can affect efficiency and longevity.
  • Check the temperature setting. It should be set no higher than 120°F to prevent scalding and reduce energy use.
  • Inspect the pressure relief valve to ensure it’s functioning correctly. Carefully lift the valve’s lever and let it snap back. You should see a burst of water into the overflow drainpipe if it’s working right.

Look for Signs of Sewer Line Trouble

Summer can bring unexpected issues with your sewer lines, especially if you have trees in your yard whose roots can invade and clog the lines.

  • Be on the lookout for signs of a sewer line backup, such as water backing up from the drain or toilets making gurgling sounds.
  • Consider having a professional inspect and possibly clean the main sewer line to ensure it’s clear of obstructions.

General Maintenance and Upgrades

Finally, summer is a great time to consider upgrades or general maintenance that can improve efficiency and prevent problems:

  • Think about installing a water softener if you have hard water issues, which can extend the life of your plumbing appliances.
  • Consider replacing old pipes if you have an older home to prevent potential bursts.

What Our Customers Say

Drain Pro Solutions


I feel lucky that I came across Manny’s business when my old water heater started leaking and needed to be replaced quickly. Manny was super responsive, communicated everything and was priced fairly. He and Amir did a great job with the work and went above and beyond to take care of me. I also asked Manny about replacing my toilet and they completed that well too. I’ll be recommending them to friends and family for any plumbing needs.
-John Smith.
Very professional and reliable service provided in short notice. I called and Manny made available for me the same day. They came on time, did fantastic job in reasonable price. They keep work area covered and left with a clean site. Worked free on other minor repair- fixing the faucet (with no charge). I will recommend Drainpro Solution to anyone looking for a perfect and timely job.

Manny was prompt, described the situation to me, and quoted me a price. His work ethic exceeded my expectations. The work was not as involved as he first thought so he adjusted the amount of the bill accordingly. He did a great job. He was a personable, no-nonsense business man which we appreciated. I would hire him again. Also, he is bi-lingual which helps.

-Kathy R.
