How to prevent plumbing breakdowns

How to prevent plumbing breakdowns

We are a company that installs and maintains plumbing systems, but that doesn’t mean we won’t help you for free. We love when we have work, but giving you tips on how to prevent failures in plumbing systems is something we are glad to do. Seeing people waste money on constant repairs just because they don’t know some tricks in maintaining plumbing elements isn’t something we like. This post will cover some basic tips that will help you keep the plumbing system in check and prevent unnecessary breakdowns that will siphon the money out of your pocket.
Do note that you still have to pay to professionals to maintain your plumbing system. Regular maintenance will uncover major faults that may lead to total failure.

What to check to prevent major failures

bathroomWhen it comes to plumbing, there are three service areas that are the kitchen, bathroom and sewer and septic system. All of them require some love and care if you want to prevent failures and save money.
Let’s start with the kitchen as it is the most used part of the house. You should check for leaks now and then because the couplings may give up due to the constant use. A leak can happen in multiple places including sink accessories, strainers, and faucet. If you notice moist areas, then you should call a plumber because it’s better to prevent further damages by appropriate reaction than to wait for the water to cause more damage.
Sink drain and garbage disposal can also cause leaks, and you should maintain them as much as you can. Clean the drain every week, and that will prevent the buildup of garbage that might cause the overflow. Waste disposal is susceptible to leaks that are hard to spot. Check it often and watch for moist areas as they are the early sign that a garbage disposal is developing a leak.

Tips for maintaining bathroom and sewer system

Bathroom maintenance is similar to the maintenance of the kitchen as faucets and drains are the central focus of the maintenance. Faucets are susceptible to leaks, and you should check them every week or so. Toilets can also cause problems as their parts tend to wear out. If the toilet is leaking, then you should hire someone to check it. The leak can be resulting from some small part that wore out or some bigger malfunction that could cost you a lot.
There isn’t a good way to check sewer and septic systems without a qualified technician. And that is a problem because these systems can cause monetary damages that come near four digits. Septic system is built to be durable, and thus you don’t have to hire technicians to check it on the weekly or monthly basis. A twice-a-year check is all you need to keep the septic system safe from failures. You can maintain sewer system through several stoppages you should check on regular basis. If you notice any inconsistencies, then it’s the right moment to call us, or other plumbing company to check it.

The heating options and what do they mean for you

The heating options and what do they mean for you

Every household calls a plumber after an accident that can’t be hot fixed with a bit of a tape or glue. Very few people will call workers for the sake of the maintenance of their plumbing system. This especially applies to boilers and heaters as they require regular maintenance to work properly. Their repairs also cost quite a lot, and it’s more cost-effective to pay for maintenance.

Boilers and water heaters aren’t as susceptible to breakdowns as you might believe. They break because you don’t service them on a regular basis. A big part of our business is the installation of these household elements, and thus we know how durable they are. An entirely new boiler or water heater will last several years without any major breakdowns and that we can guarantee. But you still have to pay for maintenance to avoid future expenses and prevent major disruptions that will render the equipment non-repairable.

Heating service plans we can offer you

When it comes to heating programs, we have several of them that include various fuels that will keep the temperature of your home at the desired level. The choice is on you, and that means that you can choose the fuel and the plan in which it will be used. We will recommend certain programs that will suit the size of your house, and that will keep the costs down.

We will give you a choice between propane and natural gas. Both of these two have their pros and cons, and the cost of their installation varies as well. Propane is the choice of the majority of people throughout the USA. Propane is easy to install and cheap to use, and the protection plan is affordable. Propane heating system will increase the energy costs as time goes by, but you can prevent it by hiring us for a tune-up. This tune-up should be done every year, and it will keep the energy cost down. We also include special offers for a tune-up that will cost you several times less than it would normally. Check our site for more info on that.

Natural gas is a viable option for heating water as well as your home. If you have oil heating system, but you are interested in natural gas then contact us, and we will convert it. Installation of the natural gas system is a bit more expensive than the propane, but the long-term costs are smaller. You will save even more money if you choose to convert oil to natural gas.
