Check Out This Back-to-School Plumbing Checklist

It’s almost that time of year again—back to school! As your kids are getting ready to head back to the classroom in September, there are a few things you should keep in mind to make sure their school year goes smoothly. While your plumbing system is probably one of the last things on your mind, it’s an important part of making sure your kids have a comfortable and stress-free school year. In this blog post, we will explore a back-to-school plumbing checklist to help you get started. From checking for leaks to drain cleaning and more, read on for everything you need to do to get your plumbing system school-ready.

Garbage Disposal

It’s important to check the garbage disposal regularly for any signs of issues. If you see any water or sewage leaking from the disposal, or if it doesn’t seem to be draining properly, you should contact a plumbing professional as soon as possible.



When toilets become clogged or damaged, they can cause all sorts of problems for your home, from water damage to sewage backup. So what can you do to keep your home’s toilets in good working order? Here are a few tips:

  • Inspect toilets regularly for leaks, clogs, and damage.
  • Make sure toilets are properly installed and vented.
  • Repair any leaks or damage immediately.
  • Don’t put anything down the toilet except toilet paper and human waste.
  • Have a plumber check your home’s toilets at least once a year.

Shower Drains

If you find any blockages in your shower, it’s important to get it fixed as soon as possible. Luckily, there are a few easy ways to do this. The first thing you can do is to remove the drain cover and see if anything is blocking the drain. If there is, you can try to remove it with a plunger or a plumber’s snake. If that doesn’t work, you can always call the professionals at Maffei Services to take care of the problem.


Before the start of each school year, it’s important to check your washing machine for any plumbing issues. First, check for any leaks in the pipes. Next, look to see if the drainage system is functioning properly. Finally, make sure the water pressure is adequate. If you notice any of these issues, you should contact a professional plumber to come and take a look. By catching these issues before the school year starts, you can avoid any major disruptions to day-t0-day laundry needs.

Final Thoughts

It may be July, but it’s time to start thinking about back-to-school preparations. This includes making sure your home’s plumbing is in good working order. Use this checklist to make sure everything is in order before the school year starts. And if you need any help, contact us to schedule a plumber to come out and fix your plumbing issues.
