What is preventative maintenance?
Preventative maintenance is a general term used for plumbing maintenance – checking that everything is in working order. It is similar to the plumbing inspection but does not have the same level of detail. Regardless of the term used, preventative maintenance is an essential service that is necessary to ensure your pipes and taps are functioning as they should. Maintenance plumbing and service plumbing are very closely linked, because nearly every plumbing contractor that offers maintenance will also offer callout emergency services. For instance, Reed Plumbing & Drainage Solutions offers a 24/7 emergency callout service along with high-quality preventative maintenance.
What are the benefits of preventative plumbing maintenance?
Preventative plumbing maintenance has a lot of benefits. It is a proactive and responsible approach to the quality of your water supply. You can identify water leaks in the early stages and prevent them from doing more serious harm, such as damage to a roof or beam. You will save on your overall water costs. And you can find other potential hazards such as low water pressure or fixtures that need to be replaced.
What can I do to maintain my plumbing?
While most problems require a licensed plumber, there are a number of practical actions you can take if you want to maintain your pipes. Consider the following:
1. Fix leaky faucets.
2. Maintain a reasonable water pressure (not too high or low)
3. Ensure your drains are fast and unclog them frequently.
4. Be conservative with water where possible.
5. Use a water softener.
6. Stop running toilets.
7. Drain your water heater.
Of course, you might need a licensed plumber to help with some of these steps, and it’s always better to get a professional to conduct a more thorough investigation of your water supply system.
What is the single best way to maintain my plumbing?
Get a yearly hydro jet and CCTV drain inspection. Basically, this will keep your pipes as clean as possible and blast all dirt and debris away from the pipe interiors. This is the single best way, but there are other areas that you need to investigate. Consider that a single dripping tap can waste 20 – 100 litres of water a day. This is a serious waste. Hot water systems need to be inspected routinely. If you offer bathrooms to the public, they need to be regularly checked to avoid pooling issues. Finally, do not be careless – don’t flush oil or grease down any drain. This will result in a costly clog.
