Prepare Plumbing System For Florida Summer

Florida is notorious for hot and humid summers. While most people consider the winter weather as the biggest hazard for residential and commercial plumbing, the Florida summer can potentially be just as damaging as the coldest winter months. This spring, take time to prepare your plumbing system for the Florida summer by calling Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of West Palm Beach.

Prepare for Flooding


Florida summers usually bring in heavy storms, so you want to be certain your home or business has a functional plumbing and drainage system to prevent flooding on your property. A clogged drain can cause storm waters to back up into your basement, and a broken sump pump could mean gallons of water accumulating in your basement very quickly. Arrange a preventative maintenance call to have a professional inspect and repair your sump pump and drains before the summer storms begin.

Update Your Plumbing System


If you’re taking time to do some spring-cleaning before the summer months, why not spend some effort updating your plumbing system? Contact Benjamin Franklin Plumbing in West Palm Beach to arrange for an upgrade to your toilets, sinks, faucets, drains, or water filtration system. We can also perform water testing or install a new water filtration system for greater efficiency.

Check Your Water Heater


Springtime is also a great time to flush out your hot water heater and test it for mineral buildup and contamination. You may not think of summer as the time you need hot water the most, and it can be easier to service or replace a water heater when demand for hot water is lowest. The pros at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing can also help you choose a new water heater, or potentially upgrade you to a new tankless system that offers hot water on demand and saves the space that a large tank-based system would need.

Florida summers can be brutal, and expert plumbing services from Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of West Palm Beach can help ensure your water system stays functional and reliable all summer long.
