Just like any other portion of your plumbing system—from your kitchen and bathroom fixtures to your laundry room and water heater—your outdoor plumbing can sometimes become damaged or begin to leak. This can cause extensive damage over time which can lead to leaks, negatively impacting your ability to conserve water and also raising your water bills unnecessarily.

Leaks from outdoor lawn faucets often come from either the handle or the spout and are likely caused by faulty valves. Sprinkler heads can be damaged from freezing temperatures during the winter or even from natural wear and tear over time. We are here for you when you need repairs, and to provide thorough maintenance to reduce the chance that you’ll need repairs in the first place.

Tips for Caring for Your Outdoor Plumbing

As with your indoor plumbing appliances, pipes, and fixtures, your outdoor plumbing requires regular care to stay in good shape. Investing in routine maintenance is the best way to ensure this is the case, but there are also things you can do around your home on your own to help your outdoor plumbing.

For instance, in order to reduce the chance of clogs and backups from occurring, it’s a good idea to clear your gutters, downspouts, and outdoor drains of any leaves and debris that has built up over time. This is particularly important during the fall, when trees around your living space will be shedding leaves.

Secondly, winterizing your plumbing in the fall is important. This means draining your lawn faucets and hoses, and keeping them open to prevent pipe freezing. Frozen pipes can lead to burst plumbing among other problems.
