Do I Need an Annual Plumbing Maintenance Inspection?
People don’t often put much thought into their plumbing systems. Their design makes them durable, and the expectation is that your water will always flow. Nevertheless, your plumbing does need regular care to ensure its longevity and limit costly repairs. Consequently, a trusted, professional plumbing service can help ensure that your system is in the best possible shape with regular annual plumbing maintenance inspections. Even if you have a new home, or a newly installed plumbing system, you can benefit from annually scheduled maintenance.
Plumbing maintenance is more than just checking for leaking pipes or corrosion. Plumbing maintenance inspections also encompass many appliances that you use on a daily basis: water heater, garbage disposal, dishwasher. As an example, it is vital that your water heater receives an annual inspection and maintenance tune-up. This is the only way to ensure the water heater works correctly and efficiently. It is a simple fact of the matter that you are going to need a new water heater long before you need to repipe your home.
Regardless, you can avoid many potential problems with an annual plumbing maintenance inspection. A failure of your water or sewage lines can cause extensive damage to your home. A professional plumbing service will check your supply lines, shut-off valves, faucets, toilets, and drains. Additionally, they will check your water heater, washing machine, sump pumps, and any other appliances. They are looking for any leaks, corrosion, and blockages. At the inspection’s completion, the plumber will provide you with a list of repair and upgrade recommendations.
