Plunging ToiletJust because you don’t have to worry about plumbing problems like frozen and burst piping during the summer, doesn’t mean you won’t have any at all. With warm summer weather comes a slew of related plumbing problems, such as sewer line backups, basement flooding, and clogged garbage disposals.

Fortunately, these common summer plumbing problems can be avoided with routine plumbing maintenance. Roto-Rooter Lake Charles can help you kick back and relax this summer with our trusted plumbing service in Lake Charles, LA and Beaumont, TX. Calling us at the first sign of plumbing trouble can help you enjoy summer and avoid more repairs down the road.

Here are a few common summer plumbing repairs in Lake Charles, LA and Beaumont, TX and how to avoid them.

Sewer line backups

Summer rain showers and thunderstorms saturate the ground, allowing excess water to flow into cracked or damaged sewer pipes and cause a system backup. Signs of sewer line trouble include a toilet that backs up into the bathtub drain. Invasive tree roots can also cause this to happen as they take refuge within the cozy confines of your sewer line. Having a drain plug installed in each drain can prevent water from backing up during summer storms, but the best thing to do if you suspect a backup of any kind is to call us and schedule an inspection.

Flooded basements

Severe storm can easily lead to basement flooding, so it’s important to make sure your sump pump is always working. In addition to providing a breeding ground for potentially dangerous mold and bacteria, the damage caused by a flooded basement can cost thousands to repair. Stand up to standing water in your basement! You can prevent basement flooding by periodically testing your sump pump. Keep in mind that many sump pumps rely on electricity to operate and strong thunderstorms often result in power outages. Battery backup sump pumps can prevent basement flooding in the event of a power outage.

Broken and clogged garbage disposals

Summer cookouts and parties can take a toll on your garbage disposal. To avoid a clogged garbage disposal, throw fibrous, starchy summer foods as corn on the cob, tough melon rinds, and leftover pasta salad in the trash. Always run cold water while your garbage disposal is on and don’t wait for it to fill up with waste before using it. Also, keep cooking grease and oil out of your garbage disposal.

Don’t let avoidable plumbing problems put a plug in your summer fun! Keep the party going this summer by trusting Roto-Rooter Lake Charles with all your plumbing repairs in Lake Charles, LA and Beaumont, TX! Your satisfaction is always a top priority!
