We live in Houston. We work in Houston. We love Houston. We are Houston.
There isn’t much to say about Hurricane Harvey that hasn’t already been said. The devastating impact left us in shock and heartbreak, but now we are ready to help Houston rebuild and repair.
Through solidarity, perseverance and time, Houston will heal. We will pass this challenging chapter stronger than ever before. While so so many are still recovering from this hurricane, know that we are praying for all of you.
For those of you returning to your homes (and/or businesses), here are some important plumbing tips to keep in mind:
1) Water heater: If your water heater is on ground level, be sure to make sure the pilot gas light is working properly, because the gas valve or igniter may be corroded.
2) Sanitary Sewer drains: If your home or neighborhood was flooded with at least 2 feet of water, check to ensure that your home’s sanitary sewer system is working properly, because storm water may have entered your sanitary sewer system through cracks or separations that were present on the sanitary sewer system pipes before the storm. The surge of storm water could have infiltrated the pipes and cause the sanitary sewer system to backup into your home.
3) Domestic water system: It’s a good idea to have your main water supply line (that runs from the city main beneath the street to your house) checked for leaks that may have occurred. This is especially for homes located on busy streets, because it is not uncommon for motorists to drive up on yards when streets are flooded, which could then break or crack the house’s main water supply line.
If you’re unsure how to do any of the above-mentioned tips, please feel free to contact us and we’d be happy to help you.
If you need any plumbing or piping assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us. #HoustonStrong
