Why Plumbing Maintenance is Important
Toilets, water heaters, pipes, sinks, and other fixtures and equipment wear out over time. And since emergency plumbing situations are unpredictable, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
By discovering minor problems early, you can save a substantial amount of money and safeguard your property and personal belongings from extensive damage. For example, professional sewer line cleaning averages $370. That’s nearly 10X less than the $3500 price tag of a sewer line replacement due to tree root damage. Consider also that repairing water damage could set you back as high as $5,245. Stay on top of plumbing preventive maintenance to avoid such hefty expenses.

If your plumbing is new, have it checked every two years. We recommend annual plumbing maintenance for older homes and homes surrounded by mature trees.
The Benefits of Plumbing Maintenance Services and Repair
Wondering if you should invest in professional plumbing preventive maintenance? Consider the perks below:
» Prevent Plumbing Emergencies
A professional plumber can inspect each component of your plumbing system to identify areas that might turn catastrophic down the road. That saves you from the hassles and the exorbitant costs of emergency plumbing repairs.
» Improved Water Quality
An integral part of plumbing maintenance is checking for and addressing corrosion and sediments in water pipes, preventing potential water contamination.
» Reasonable Water Bills
A dripping showerhead may not seem like much of a problem, but it could waste hundreds of gallons of water in just one year. A plumber can easily find and fix these leaks to save you money on your monthly water bill.
» Optimized System Longevity
Plumbing maintenance doesn’t just sustain your piping’s function and efficiency. With routine tune-ups and remedies for wear and tear, your plumbing serves you longer without eating into your money.
» Improved Air Quality
Plumbing leaks encourage mold growth. The mold spores can infiltrate your living spaces and trigger respiratory allergies in vulnerable occupants. Mold also produces a musty smell that could compromise your home comfort. Addressing leaks eradicates the mold problem, meaning better air quality and health for your family.
Signs You Need Plumbing Maintenance
Unsure when to schedule plumbing maintenance with a local expert? Watch out for the following signs.
» Low Water Pressure
Low water pressure in one faucet can be attributed to a clogged aerator. You only need to unscrew the aerator and remove the sediment. If multiple fixtures are affected, that suggests a deeper problem, such as cracked/open pipes in the foundation or walls. In this case, professional intervention is mandatory.
» No Hot Water
The root cause could be a leaking hot water tank, heater malfunction, thermostat failure, small tank, failing gas valve, and gas leaks.
» Water Leaks
According to the US EPA, a leaking faucet wastes as much as 250 gallons per month. Plumbing leaks stem from pipe cracks, pressure buildups, or an incorrectly installed fixture/appliance. Hidden leaks often manifest in spots on the walls and ceilings.
» Sewer Smell
Are sewage smells making it unbearable to stay in your home or office? Hire a plumbing contractor to check for a drain clog, old toilet wax ring, too-short/blocked vent pipe, cracked drain pipes, or loose-fitting pipe connections.
» Frequent Toilet Backups
A toilet can keep overflowing due to clogs in the main drain pipe or sewer line. If a few plunges do not fix the problem, it is time to call your local plumber.
» Gurgling Drains
Gurgling sounds indicate air pockets trapped in your plumbing. The cause could be a blocked drain, sewer line, P-trap, or vent system.
