The Importance of Maintaining a Plumbing System
Maintaining a plumbing system extends its lifespan by reducing the risk of major damage and wear and tear. Preventive plumbing system maintenance services like drain cleaning, leak detection, and hydro jetting services reduce your risk of clogged drains, overflows, backups, leaks, and damaged pipes. Annual plumbing inspections offer early warning of common plumbing problems like tree root intrusions, pest and rodent infestations, rusted or corroded pipes, and debris or sludge buildup. By tracking the health and performance of your plumbing over time, we can quickly find solutions to minor plumbing issues so your plumbing repairs are more efficient and less expensive.
Our Residential Plumbing System Maintenance Services
Our routine plumbing system maintenance services are like a general check-up for your plumbing systems and appliances. We recommend our customers schedule an annual plumbing inspection and drain cleaning services to reduce their risk of future plumbing problems. Our most effective methods of maintaining a plumbing system include:
Plumbing inspections can be diagnostic or preventive. We start with a thorough visual inspection of all interior and exterior plumbing systems and plumbing appliance elements, including water valves and spigots, pipes, fittings and fixtures, and caulking. We will then complete a video camera plumbing inspection to assess the condition of the interior of your drains and pipes. This allows us to find evidence of leaks, holes, punctures, damage, degradation, build-up, tree roots, pests, and rodents.
Our enzymatic drain cleaner quickly breaks apart stubborn clogs. It kills harmful bacteria, dissolves clogs, and prevents new clogs from forming.
Hydro Jetting Services
HydroScrub® drain cleaning can blast away decades of debris, sludge, and buildup lining the walls of your pipes. We use powerful pressurized water jets to break apart clogs and clean the pipe’s interior, so it functions more efficiently. Debris like oil, fat, grease, paper products, organic matter, and sludge is flushed down the pipe to the city’s sewer system.
Our mechanical drain rooter can break apart clogs quickly. It is effective on tree roots, organic matter, and other debris.
During our plumbing inspection, we will check for signs of leaks and water damage. We use innovative, state-of-the-art technology to find hidden leaks behind walls, cabinets, and under flooring or yards.
Maintain a Residential Plumbing System Between Visits
You can also do your part to maintain a residential plumbing system between visits from our team. We recommend that you follow these home plumbing system maintenance tips:
Daily Plumbing System Maintenance
Clear any clogs as soon as possible to prevent them from worsening. Only rinse water and soap down the drains. Do not rinse fats, grease, oils, paint, or large pieces of food. Be careful about what you flush down the toilet. Only toilet paper and waste should be flushed. Don’t flush baby wipes, paper towels, facial tissue, tampons, pads, condoms, cigarettes, or other trash. Run cold water down the drain for at least 15 seconds after using the garbage disposal.
Weekly Plumbing System Maintenance
Check for signs of leaks or moisture. Test your sink and shower drains to ensure they aren’t running slowly. Clean out the lint traps on your washing machine.
Seasonal Plumbing System Maintenance
In the fall, you should shut down your home’s cooling system and disconnect the hoses, shut off the valves, and cover it with a protective cover. Insulate pipes. In spring, you should check for leaks and clean sprinkler heads. Schedule inspections throughout the year for seasonal appliances and systems.
