Heavy rains can cause major plumbing problems. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help solve those problems.
It’s been obvious the past week or so that Tampa Bay is in the midst of the rainy season when we get those bursts of heavy rain, thunder and lightning that come and go leaving high temperatures and humidity behind. According to forecasters, we can expect more of the same this coming week and at least through the first week of August.
It’s a mixed blessing. Rain is good for plants and helps replenish the aquifer. But rain can take a toll on your plumbing.
Consider your toilet.
“Toilets are under-appreciated fixtures in the home and tend to exist unnoticed—until something goes wrong,” Popular Mechanics says. “Plumbing issues can range from minute problems such as a shaky toilet handle all the way through severe clogs and backups.”
Or, toilets can gurgle and spew when it rains.
“If your toilet only gurgles when it rains, you’ve likely got rain water pouring into your sewer system,” according to Popular Mechanics. “But, … it could also be caused by a blockage in your sewer line.”
You can test it by using a plumbing snake to probe your sewer clean-out. If you find an obstruction, use the snake to clear it away. If you don’t find an obstruction, then it might be farther down in the system.
Toilets are not the only plumbing fixture affected by heavy rains. Other fixtures can become blocked. Pipes can break. Or things could back up and your house could flood.
If you have one of those problems. Or, if you can’t fix that toilet gurgling issue, then it’s time to call a reliable plumbing pro like the trusted plumbing experts at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
