Common Spring Plumbing Problems

As spring approaches and the weather starts to warm up, it is when most people experience plumbing problems that come with the change of weather. Although we are happy that the winter cold is behind us, spring comes with its own set of problems that require professional plumbing repair service. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing, we have years of plumbing experience and are familiar with all the issues that homeowners run into during spring. Here is a list of common spring plumbing problems compiled by our team of qualified plumbers.

Gutter Blockage

After several months of extreme cold, spring is a time of growth and rebirth for plants. As a homeowner, the last thing you want is water damage on your ceiling, drywall, or flooring, which can be pretty expensive to repair. This often causes leaves, twigs, and other organic debris to fall on your roof and block your gutter. If this trash is not cleared out in time, it can lead to an overflow allowing water into your home. It also creates a way for pest infestations and mold growth, leading to further damage and deterioration of your health. Mr. Rooter Plumbing can send an expert plumber to your home to ensure you are protected from water damage and other subsequent issues.


Winter weather is characterized by freezing temperatures, which cause your plumbing lines to contract or fill with frozen water. As the weather changes during spring, your pipes can leak due to the leaks developed in winter. The warm spring weather causes the pipes to expand, exposing the leaks and expanding old ones. If left unchecked, it creates a way for water contamination, damage, and wastage, which ultimately increases your monthly utility bills. If you suspect you leak your plumbing, hiring a plumber to assess for signs of breakages is advisable. Mr. Rooter Plumbing provides top-notch leak detection service, protecting you from leak-related damage.

Invasive Roots

Spring weather rejuvenates the plants, prompting them to resume the search for nutrients needed for growth and health. As tree roots spread far and wide across your lawn, a leaky sewer line serves as the ideal nutrient source. This attracts the roots to grow inside the lines, leading to blockages that cause drainage issues. If you start to detect slow drains or water pressure issues, it might be time to hire a professional plumber to assess the state of your plumbing. We leverage cutting-edge equipment and tools for maintenance, allowing us to pinpoint the problem before it gets out of hand.

These are some of the problems that homeowners need to look out for as spring approaches to avoid unnecessary costs in repairs and replacements. Scheduling regular maintenance with a plumber helps address potential plumbing problems before they become too pronounced. Don’t wait for a plumbing emergency so that you can call the nearest service to provide.
