Hot weather can be hard on your plumbing. If you have plumbing problems, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
Summer doesn’t officially arrive until next Tuesday. But the weather didn’t wait until the official start of summer to beam down hot temperatures on Tampa Bay. A heat advisory has been issued and temperatures are hitting near record highs. The hot weather is tough on everyone – human and pet.
High temperatures are also tough on your home. Hot weather can cause problems with your plumbing and other systems.
Among the heat-related plumbing problems you might experience, according to delawarebusinesstimes.com:
“Leaky or bursting pipes. Yes, hot weather can cause pipes to burst, too, though not as commonly as freezing temperatures. Hot weather causes the pipes to expand, and if they are aging or previously stressed, they may spring leaks. In addition, nearby plants and trees begin spreading their roots in the warmer weather, and sometimes these roots can penetrate the pipes.
“Low water pressure. If hot weather results in leaky pipes, especially multiple leaks, you may begin experiencing lower water pressure as a result.
“More clogged drains.While not directly related to the temperature, we often see more clogged drains in the summertime, mainly due to increased use of the toilets (for example, the kids being home on summer break and/or gatherings with family and friends).”
Delawarebusinesstimes.com adds, “Extreme warm temperatures can cause a strain on your plumbing, as well.
“Some temperature-related plumbing problems are preventable (for example, dripping faucets in subfreezing temperatures and not pouring grease down your drains). However, in many cases, the weather’s effects on our plumbing are just a matter of nature interacting with aging pipes over time. If you suspect you’re experiencing leaks or clogs due to temperature issues, call a plumbing professional to pinpoint the source of the problem.”
