Rochester Realities: Maintain Your Plumbing This Summer For a Hassle-Free Winter

Raise Your System’s Resistance (Before Temperatures Drop)

A stitch in time saves nine—it’s a phrase we all know, and one that extends beyond embroidery.

Here in Rochester, MN, we’re currently living in the heart of summer. With temperatures reaching 90 degrees and above, the last thing on your mind is the upcoming winter. Even further out of reach is a concern for how your pipes will combat the cold.

However, at Tonna Mechanical, your plumbing company in Rochester, MN, we encourage you to maintain your plumbing while the weather is still mild. This way, you can correct potential issues now—before they become plumbing catastrophes.

Prepare Early—Before Your Pipes Are Put to the Test

There are some things in life that you just know will happen. For example, you know that your car will eventually run out of gas; you know that your taxes will be due each year; and, living in Rochester, you know that the winter will be cold.

Caught in the chaos of summer, you might not know that your plumbing needs attention. But once winter arrives, the colder water passing through your pipes will cause them to expand. If your pipes already have leaks, this can be the final straw that makes them burst. This is when Tonna Mechanical’s plumbing repairs can correct the damage that’s been done.

However, rather than pay for pipe repairs and replacements in the middle of winter, you can elevate your plumbing this summer as a member of our Comfort Club.

With our “Got You Covered” maintenance plan, our plumbers in Rochester, MN will give your home a FREE whole-home plumbing system check. Examining your system from top to bottom, our specialists correct the minor problems that often turn into major repairs.

Protect Your Hot Water Supply While Temperatures Are High

Hot water does more than ease your stress after a long day—it also prevents your pipes from freezing and bursting.

With your Comfort Club membership, our NATE-certified technicians will maintain your hot water heater twice a year, ensuring that it can endure the frigid temperatures. Instead of paying for water heater repair in the midst of winter, you can optimize your system with a summertime tune-up.

Start Fresh This Summer with an Efficient Water Softener

It’s easy to dismiss the unknown by concluding that, “Ignorance is bliss.” However, in regard to your plumbing system, ignorance is dangerous.

Living with hard water in Southeast Minnesota, your pipes are vulnerable to sediment buildup. Over time, this buildup can lead to a blockage that will eventually cause your pipes to burst. With the cold water already expanding your pipes, it’s important to prevent sediment buildup at all costs.

If you’ve detected telltale signs of hard water within your own supply, Tonna Mechanical’s full-time Water Treatment Department will install a new water softener in your home. With this new system, you’ll significantly reduce the strain that’s being placed on your pipes and plumbing.

Not sure where your water softener stands? As a member of our Comfort Club you can add your water softener to any of our three maintenance plans.
