Do You Need Plumbing Maintenance?

Do You Need Plumbing Maintenance? 

Plumbing is an essential part of our everyday routines and its importance is often overlooked. We use plumbing fixtures and appliances to shower, wash clothing, clean dishes, and much more. To ensure that it is functioning properly and to prevent future issues from occurring, plumbing needs to be maintained. Maintaining plumbing can also reduce the chances of your bill increasing. Learn helpful tips you can do on your own as well as when to schedule maintenance with a trusted plumber below!

Importance of Plumbing Maintenance

Just like your car needs to be checked regularly, so does your plumbing! While contacting a plumber to perform maintenance is a good idea, there are also things you can do on your own first to ensure everything is running effectively and efficiently. Leaks are a very common plumbing issue. It is important to check for leaks periodically, which means inspecting your faucets and exposed pipes. Slow drainage can occur if there is a clog. Test out your drains by running water and seeing how long it takes to drain. Other things to check include your hot water heater, shower water pressure, your toilet, washing machine hoses, and signs of potential water damage. 

How Often Should I Schedule Maintenance

Now that you know what you can do to maintain your plumbing, you may be wondering when you should schedule a maintenance appointment with a plumber, how often, and why? A lot of the time, plumbing issues happen unexpectedly because we aren’t always aware of the signs or they present themselves too late. By scheduling preventative maintenance, you can stop a problem from worsening, avoid a major issue that can cause serious damage, and have the ability to save a great deal of money. At Stephens Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we highly recommend making an appointment for plumbing maintenance every year.
