How to Get A Head Start On Your Plumbing Check-Up

Every season there is a list of things to do or to have done around your home. With springtime on the horizon, you can get ahead start with hiring an expert plumber to do a whole house plumbing checkup.

Your plumber should examine the shutoff valves at each fixture in your home. New homes will most likely have a valve for each fixture; however, if they do not, you can ask the plumber to install one. A broken or corroded valve should be replaced immediately. Waiting until water gushes from a broken pipe is not the time to find out that the valve has worn out.

Washing machine hoses are the leading cause of water damage in the home. Replace any rubber hoses connected to the washer with steel hoses. This is a much better way to contain the water.

Slow and clogged drains make for unhappy homeowners. The waiting for the flood to happen, it's best to nip it in the bud. Mr. Rooter Plumbing can use a camera inspection that will allow you to see any blockages or possible leaks in the pipes.

Your plumber inserts a cable with a small camera on the end into your drain. A monitor displays live images as the cable snakes through the pipe. Detecting early signs of trouble and solving minor problems before they create bigger ones is critical to keeping your home's plumbing system in working order.

Spring can be tough on plumbing and being prepared is essential. Scheduling a plumbing inspection can help keep your home dry and plumbing happy. Give us a call today to schedule your check-up!
