We all know the saying “April showers bring May flowers” but do you know what else April showers can bring? Problems with your plumbing system.
As a homeowner in Buffalo, you’re used to water. Winters are snowy. Springs are wet. And flooding can quickly become a problem if your plumbing isn’t properly maintained. Here are four simple tips to get your plumbing ready for spring:
1. Check Your Sump Pump
A sump pump is pretty much what it sounds like: a pump in your basement or crawlspace used to redirect water away from your home.

We offer sump pump repair and installation to ensure your home is ready for any weather.
2. Inspect Leaky Drains or Faucets
Sewer, Water, Foundation, Gas . . . when it comes to leak detection The Plumber does it all! Slow drains, toilets that won’t flush, damp walls, and sudden increases in your water bill are all signs you may have a leak somewhere within your plumbing system. Early detection is essential to saving you on costly repairs. Call the leak detection experts at The Plumber today if you think there may be a problem.
3. Inspect Your Sewer Line

Over time sewer lines can be damaged as a result of aging and encroaching wildlife such us tree roots. The Plumber provides pipeline video inspection to examine the interior of sewer pipe as well as sewer repair and cleaning.
