For many household owners, an outdoor plumbing system is something there is no need to worry about. It is just several cranes staring out from the building that are needed to connect the hose to the water-providing system. However, it is not as simple as it seems to be. 

Even though there is no necessity to look after the condition of the walls and kitchen cabinets around the tubes or cranes, there still exist some pitfalls that may break down the whole plumbing system in one’s house. For example, you should always check whether the bracing is solid enough and is reliable for a strong water stream.

In this article, you will find some useful tips about using and maintaining your outdoor plumbing system and how to benefit from having it at all.

Frequent Problems with Outdoor Plumbing

As it was said, you will know what issues can occur if you do not follow the common rules of maintaining your outdoor plumbing system in the right conditions. So, sometimes the system goes out of your control and spoils your routine. In this case, it is needed to call for a professional plumbing service to not make any mistakes while solving the problems.

However, to know that something is wrong, you need to notice it first. Here are some frequently met problems:

  • Sewer tube blockage. It is one of the most widespread problems that plumbers meet in houses with outdoor plumbing systems. Sewer lines’ purpose is to deduce the waste and used water from the house. Therefore, if they get blocked, the waste in the indoor tubes may be stuck, even though the problem is in the outdoor tubes. It will lead to stagnation of stinky odors inside the rooms and will make your life uncomfortable.
  • Issues with cranes fixture. Have you noticed water leakages from the outdoor cranes? If the answer is yes, then you should fix that problem as fast as possible. If the water runs out of the hoses, it will definitely impact the water supply in your yard. If you want to avoid it, you should call for professional help since sometimes it can be hard to solve the problem with the fixation of cranes.
  • Sprinkler leakages. Problems with sprinklers may occur due to the breakdown of underground tubes, so it is again needed to hire plumbers. Another problem is the leakages of the sprinklers, which may depend on the condition of the sprinklers themselves or on the condition of cranes. In this case, you can just change the sprinkler.
  • Issues with outdoor showers. Outdoor showers and sinks are very likely to be clogged due to the amount of mud in the street. Therefore, the tubes and sinks may fail to work correctly. 

Remember that in the majority of cases, the problem is hard to diminish by yourself since it lies in the blockage or cracks in tubes, which are almost impossible to fix without special knowledge.

How to Take Care of Your Outdoor Plumbing System

However, you can prevent those problems if you take care of the plumbing system in advance. 

There are several options you can employ in order to avoid the occurrence of blockages or leaks:

  1. In the autumn and winter seasons, keep the sinks, gutters, and hoses clean from the dirt and fallen leaves, so they will not block the tubes later.
  2. Avoid the drains getting full of debris, otherwise, it will not only make the indoor water dirty but also will lead to further blockages.
  3. Examine all the outdoor hose bibs and cranes to see whether there are some leakages. If the water is still running even if you stopped it, the problem may be in the cracked tube.
  4. Another problem may lie in the appearance of the insects’ or birds’ nests. In the majority of cases, they prefer to make nests at the pipes leading from the dryer to the outdoors, so pay special attention to these places.
  5. If you want to avoid spending loads on plumbing repairs, ask a professional to change the septic tank in your yard every 3-5 years. Otherwise, it will be needed to replace the whole filtering system.
  6. You should also consider checking the underground tubes each spring. When the snow melts, it makes extra water levels move under the yard, which may replace the roots of trees. It may lead to scraping the tubes and their further cracking.

All in all, it is just needed to remember that you have an outdoor plumbing system and check some vital connections in it from time to time. Otherwise, some issues may occur only due to your carelessness. In this sense, you should only inspect the systems and call the plumbers if anything especially complicated occurs.

Why Is It Necessary to Call for Professional Plumbers?

Sometimes the issue is not only in the leakages or fixation of cranes. In this case, if you are sure of your plumbing abilities you can try to solve the problem by yourself. You will only need putty and knowledge of how to close up the holes.

First of all, it will be needed to carefully uncover the tubes by digging the yard ground. Sendly, it will be needed to change or fix the pipes which is not an easy deal for a person who has never done it before.
