Plumbing Maintenance

Most homeowners ignore the small plumbing issues, but those small issues can lead to larger problems like a flood caused by a water leak or a drain backup. It’s essential to keep an eye on the maintenance of your home’s drainage system, water supply system, etc.

Water leaks affect the building structure as it dampens the surface of the walls, floors and ceilings. Through regular maintenance, major plumbing issues can be avoided!

To keep the home’s plumbing system in a healthy state, regular maintenance is crucial. When looking to hire a plumbing company to perform a plumbing maintenance service, always check that they are licensed and insured and have a positive reputation through customer reviews. Getting the job done by an inexperienced plumber could only worsen the situation, as the initial installation or repair may be sub-par and require additional service at a later stage. As it is always said, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Home Plumbing Maintenance Checklist

Why Plumbing Maintenance Matters? Taking care of your home’s plumbing ensures clean water flows in and waste is efficiently removed. Plumbing issues often go unnoticed until they become significant problems, resulting in costly repairs and inconvenience. Regular maintenance helps catch small issues before they escalate, conserving water and saving on energy bills.

Even a small leak can waste a significant amount of water. For instance, just 4,000 drips can waste a liter of water. Daily maintenance involves checking for leaks and performing seasonal maintenance to catch and repair issues promptly.

Daily Maintenance Tips Clogs are common plumbing issues that can lead to costly repairs and reduce the lifespan of your plumbing system. To prevent clogs:

  • Avoid putting grease or oils down the kitchen sink.
  • Properly use the garbage disposal and run cold water afterward.
  • Install screens over drains to catch hair in the bathroom.

Weekly Maintenance Regular weekly checks can help prevent small problems from becoming major ones. Some weekly maintenance tasks include:

  • Checking for leaks under sinks.
  • Testing sink and shower drains for speed of drainage.
  • Ensuring water faucets do not leak from the handles or valves.

Seasonal Maintenance Different seasons bring specific challenges for your plumbing system. Seasonal maintenance helps prepare your plumbing for changing weather conditions. For example:

  • In fall, prepare outdoor spigots for winter by disconnecting hoses and insulating pipes.
  • Winter maintenance focuses on preventing frozen pipes by insulating them and eliminating drafts.
  • Spring maintenance includes checking for slow leaks, inspecting drains, and cleaning gutters.
  • In summer, have your septic system inspected, check sprinkler systems for damage, and conserve water in landscaping.
