The peak time for hurricane season is August and September, but it pays to be vigilant about hurricane preparedness throughout the season. Once a storm is on the horizon, and your house is boarded up and stocked with non-perishable food and water, use your last bit of preparation time to spare a thought to your plumbing. After all, the last thing you want to deal with during or after a hurricane is broken plumbing.

Follow these tips from Quality Plumbing of Gainesville Inc. to keep your plumbing in business before, after, and during a hurricane. If there are any issues when the coast is clear, contact us for expedited plumbing services.

Before The Storm

During The Storm

While there’s not much to do during a storm than to sit back and ride it out, you can be proactive by keeping an eye out for any flooding and being frugal with your water use. Because you don’t know how long you’ll be without potable water, it’s best to use what you have saved up sparingly. In the event you run out of water, you may be able to use water from your water heater. Just make sure that your electricity and gas are turned off before accessing the water heater.
