As you perform a deep cleaning of your home, there is a deep cleaning of your water pipes that should be done as well. Most areas have a day in the spring that they perform water main flushing in Lake Stevens. This process works to help improve water quality. Schleg Valley Construction is here to help you understand that process and what to expect.
This seemingly simple process can make a huge difference in the water flowing in and out of your home. Learn more about it below or call us today if you have any questions.
What To Expect
The process of flushing the water main is simply running a large amount of water through the lines. This typically is done by opening up the hydrants in the area to flush out the system. In your home, you may notice a reduction in water pressure during the process. It is advised to hold off on washing laundry or dishes until after it is completed. While you can still do other normal tasks, those two can be affected during this process.
The process usually takes around a half-hour or an hour to complete.
Isn’t This A Waste?
It actually is not a waste of water. By doing this process, it helps to ensure that your water is continually clean. This water rushing through the system will get rid of any sediment in the system. It also clears out anything that would cause discolorations or a bad taste in the water as well. You can also know that your water hydrants work properly whenever they may be needed.
