Just as you maintain your cooling and heating systems, you should also maintain your home’s plumbing systems. Plumbing problems can be messy and incur water damage, and certain types of plumbing repairs can be very costly. How can maintenance help prevent these types of things? We’ll explain more below, but first let’s take a look at what happens during a routine plumbing maintenance appointment:
Thorough inspection of all plumbing systems
Water pressure checks in all piping and fixtures
Check all toilets for leaks
Inspection of water-using appliances, such as washing machine and dishwasher
Inspection of all main valves
Inspection of all piping, with a particular focus on any potential leaks or corrosion
Inspection of faucets and drains
Inspection of piping under all sinks
Inspection of emergency shut-off valves
If any problems are found, the issue(s) will be explained to you and recommendations given for repair. Benefits of Plumbing Maintenance Here are some of the reasons why scheduling plumbing maintenance is beneficial:
Maintenance of appliances – plumbing problems can put stress on appliances like washing machines and dish washers; properly maintaining your plumbing helps prevent this kind of stress, which can extend the life of your water-using appliances.
Prevent/reduce clogs – if you’ve been experiencing slow drainage in any of your drains, your plumber can inspect the problem(s) during maintenance. Even if your drains are flowing well, your plumber will be able to inspect your drains for potential soap scum and/or hair build-up.
Improve water pressure – if you’ve been experiencing problems with your water pressure, maintenance can help clear some of the issues that may be causing this.
Decrease water bills – small leaks can increase your water bills; during a maintenance appointment, these leaks are repaired, which can save you money for the long-term.
