Plumbing Tips for a Garden Cabin

If you love nature, living in a garden cabin will tickle your fancy. The fresh air, the smell of flowers in the garden, the sound of birds and flowing water will keep you entertained. To make your stay more interesting, you need to ensure that the plumbing is done well.

Outside Plumbing

When living in a garden cabin, the plumbing outside needs to be protected from elements. This is especially true if you live in areas with extremes of temperature. Very high climates will crack plastic pipes and heat the water in metallic pipes while very cold temperatures will freeze water in the pipes.

Ensure that the pipes are well insulated to protect them and the water in them. Again, make the pipes strong to resist damage by animals.

The Drainage

The drainage system will carry water from both the cabin and the garden. The system needs to be kept strong with several pipes leading out of the cabin and out of the garden. The system also needs to be checked regularly. You can check the pipes yourself or hire a Staten Island Plumber to routinely check the drainage system.

In case of weak pipes, the drainage system will always be leaking. If you get a leak, call an emergency plumber.

Keep the Garden Clean

Autumn and Spring seasons will see a horde of leaves falling on the ground. Left uncollected, these leaves might clog the drains making life chaotic for you. Always collect the leaves and other debris or hire a professional cleaner to do it.
Doing these few things will keep your plumbing in good condition for longer.
