What a winter it has been! Record setting actually, for both the state and D.J. Small plumbing. Keeping busy with plenty of jobs and pipe freezes, we certainly have seen this winter during it’s best and worst of times. Even the snowbanks outside of our shop are the tallest we have seen in years! Are you ready to see this snow gone? Because we certainly are….

Snow has certainly been a huge issue this winter. Check out how high our snowbanks are!

Thankfully, spring is right around the corner! With that being said, and noting the large amounts of snow that will be melting into even larger amounts of water, here are some things you should make sure you check as the weather warms up.

Make sure your cellar drain is clear in preparation for the spring rain and the melting snow. You definitely don’t want to experience a back up in your cellar pipes, or worse, flooding!

You should also check to see if your sump pump is functioning properly on the chance the melting snow & spring rain become overwhelming for your drain system. Always prepare for the worst case scenario.
