Regular plumbing maintenance can help you avoid major plumbing issues that can damage your home. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help you keep your plumbing in tiptop shape.
You met a friend at Pier 60 the other evening for a stroll and a couple of drinks. You found yourselves talking about the joys and duties of home ownership. Specifically, home maintenance.
Maintaining your home is the hallmark of a wise homeowner. But even the wisest homeowner sometimes forgets that plumbing needs maintenance, too. They figure that, until there’s a clog or leak or some disaster, that the plumbing system is in good shape. But that’s not the case.
“Like most home maintenance projects, being proactive is key to saving money and preserving your systems. Especially because, left unchecked, your pipes and plumbing appliances can corrode or get damaged over time, resulting in costly repairs and nightmare scenarios (such as burst pipes or serious flooding in your home),” Angi says. “The question, though, is how often do you need plumbing maintenance? The answer, while pretty standard, may fluctuate depending on your system’s age—or even how many trees surround your home.”
Angi, formerly Angie’s List, suggests that newer plumbing systems should be checked and maintained every two years. Older systems, those with lots of problems (frequent clogs, for example), or many trees, should be checked annually. Among the areas that should be checked are the kitchen and bathroom(s). The plumber should also take a look at the water heater and check the water pressure.
You shouldn’t delay an inspection if your system is signaling that it has problems, Angi says. Among those signals: clogged drains. gurgling sounds in your drain, water pressure that’s too high or too low, water takes a long time to get hot (or doesn’t get hot at all), or appliances don’t work or move slowly (i.e., your dishwasher takes several hours longer than intended). You should consider that you have a possible plumbing emergency and immediately call a plumber in these cases: No water comes out of sinks, a burst or leaking pipe, a sagging ceiling, or odors coming from the garbage disposal.
If you need a trusted plumber to check your plumbing and/or fix any problems, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
