1. Toilet maintenance
If you have a large family, the summertime brings a lot more use out of your home’s toilets when kids aren’t in school.  Since your fixtures get more flushes, they are more common to maintenance issues.
The best way to address this issue is by teaching everyone in the house to limit toilet paper use and explain that certain things cannot be flushed. Simply being more aware of the fixture during the summer can help you prevent problems down the line, but always be ready to call for a Green Apple Mechanical professional help if problems continue.
2. Disposal problems
Another common issue with your house’s plumbing in the summer is the garbage disposal. With cookout weather and kids eating breakfast and lunch more at home, the garbage disposal can get extra usage.
The best way you can avoid this problem is to limit the use of your garbage disposal and never try to push down any heavier items such as hard fruits, fibrous vegetables, corn cobs or starchy foods that can soak up water in drains and clog pipes. If you have a BBQ or cookout, try to get guests to avoid your garbage disposal altogether, since it can be overworked if too many people use it.
