Summer is the season for plumbing maintenance

JACKSON, Wyo. — The sun is out and summer is here, which means many of us are flocking to water to cool down and unplug.

But summer is also a great time to think about the water that runs through your home. JB Plumbing is here to help you with all your residential and commercial plumbing needs.

Home plumbing should be inspected regularly, says JB Plumbing General Manager Henry Scroughams — at least once a year.

“It’s always a good idea to have trained professionals come to your home,” Scroughams says.

JB Plumbing can perform whole-house inspections, service and replace water heaters, fix leaks, and more. They’re the problem-solvers of your all things plumbing.

Have you flushed your water hose out yet? You should, Scroughams says. Minerals and sediment build-up and can clog water lines.

What about your back-check valves? Those are the valves that allow water to come into your home — but not out of it. Making sure those work helps keep your neighborhood water clean.

There are signs to look for that indicate it might be time for some maintenance. More obvious ones are leaks, drips, and sewage smells. Mold and mildew can also illustrate that something is awry. Do your faucets and showerheads get gunky? Your water’s probably too hard, meaning it’s full of minerals that cause build-up. JB Plumbing offers water filtration and softening systems to prevent that from happening. Does your water look milky when you pour it, then clear over time? That’s air, and it’s a sign that there might be a leak in your pipes.

Even without these signals, Scroughams says it’s always a good idea to have your home regularly inspected. Staying on top of your plumbing can help avoid problems down the road.

JB Plumbing can also install and repair gas systems! They work in old homes, new homes, and commercial spaces.

“We have a qualified, friendly crew of service technicians ready to help you,” Scroughams says.
