You may be surprised to learn that many homeowners have plumbing troubles in the spring months. This is often contributed to the increasing temperatures and the melting of high amounts of snow and ice. If plumbing systems were not properly treated or handled during the freezing winter months, you may find serious plumbing problems come spring. Plumbing problems that are left untreated often result in thousands of dollars of damage and a lengthy construction process. To prevent these high costs, ensure that you are properly maintaining your plumbing system.
