Plumbers Plan for San Diego’s Rainy Season
While our endless summer forced the city to adopt mandatory water usage limits, some local meteorologists are predicting higher chances of rain this winter (dry into late fall, however.) San Diego Plumbing contractors Perry Plumbing wants to give clients a heads’ up just in case the BEST does happen and we get the rainfall surely we have earned by now!
While San Diego’s rainfall has been as low as 7 inches, Steve Vanderberg, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service for 10 years, is predicting 11.15 inches of rain for the year, higher than our average 10.34 inches. Vanderberg explains that three dry San Diego winters (as we have experienced the past three years) are typically followed by either a further average or wetter than normal year. He relates more technical rationale as well, but we thought we would spare you the mathy-model details.
San Diego Winter Rain Prep: Focus on Yard & Septic
While no one can predict exactly the rainfall we are in for, it is wise to take some precautions, particularly in your yard. Getting drains snaked before the rain comes ensures you won’t be dealing with water pouring through your sliding glass door courtesy of your very own embankment.
As dry as it has been, debris, dirt and more may have built up in the drains. Snaking a drain can prevent unpleasant surprises like a soggy family room carpet. Even a flooded yard, however, has its solutions . . . namely hydro-jetting, our super-powered solution that fights water with water.
San Diego’s east county has septic systems that should be inspected in advance of potential rains. If you have a septic system and believe in the “ounce of prevention” approach, we handle septic and sewer inspections for San Diego home and business owners almost daily.
San Diego’s Plumber for All Seasons
While 11.15 inches of rain is nothing compared to Georgia’s 49.71, it is almost 10% more than we get in a typical San Diego winter.
