Conquer Spring Showers: Top Plumbing Tips for Baltimore Homes

Ah, spring in Baltimore! The cherry blossoms are blooming, the Orioles are back in swing, and… surprise! Your basement is starting to resemble a mini lake.

Spring’s unpredictable weather patterns can wreak havoc on your plumbing system. But fear not, Baltimore! Here at Warrior Plumbing and Heating, we’re here to help you avoid a plumbing nightmare and keep your home dry this season.

Spring Forward with Smart Plumbing:

  • Inspect Foundation Cracks: Heavy spring rains can expose foundation weaknesses. Check for cracks and call a professional for repairs to prevent leaks.
  • Clean Up Outdoor Drains: Clear away leaves, debris, and anything else blocking gutters, downspouts, and storm drains around your house. This ensures proper water flow away from your foundation.
  • Thaw Those Frozen Pipes: Did a late-season frost catch you off guard? Learn how to safely thaw frozen pipes with warm water and towels (avoid using open flames!). For stubborn blockages, call a licensed plumber.
  • Check Your Hose Bibs: Spring is prime time for yard work. Before attaching your hose, turn on the spigot and check for leaks or loose connections. Tighten any leaks and consider replacing worn-out hose bibs to avoid a burst later.
  • Test Your Sump Pump: Baltimore gets its fair share of downpours. Ensure your sump pump is functioning properly by pouring a bucket of water into the pit. If it doesn’t activate or pump efficiently, contact a plumber for maintenance or replacement.

Bonus Tip: Schedule a seasonal plumbing inspection! Our expert plumbers at Warrior Plumbing and Heating can identify potential problems before they become major headaches.
