Regular plumbing maintenance is vital for both residential and commercial properties. Minor concerns can turn into major issues if not tended to and maintained on a regular basis.
One of the best ways you can stay on top of your plumbing maintenance is by checking over your pipes. Whilst you probably use your sinks daily, it’s unlikely you would notice minor concerns unless you were looking for them, so make sure to check the plumbing including the exposed pipes, the area under your sinks and behind the toilet. Look out for condensation, leaks and pooled water as these are strong indications there is something wrong with the plumbing.
Also ensure to check for any signs of corrosion on your brass or copper fittings as corrosion will occur more on damp metal so corrosion may indicate a larger problem such as a slow leak.
DIY plumbing inspections are valuable, but it’s also beneficial to have a qualified plumber in for a more comprehensive plumbing inspection every now and then. They will know what to look for and what areas may need a little more inspection than others.
Here are the 3 main benefits of staying on top of your plumbing maintenance.
- Better Air Quality
Dampness, condensation and leaky pipes can cause mould and mildew to grow which can affect the air quality.
- Increase Plumbing Lifespan
Regular plumbing maintenance can increase the lifespan of your plumbing by ensuring any excessive pressure on the pipes is spotted and resolved before it causes damage to the pipes, thus extending their lifespan.
- Money Saving
Regular plumbing maintenance will save you money on your water bills by preventing a costlier issue from arising later on.
