Why Maintaining Plumbing Is Important
There are many reasons that plumbing systems malfunction. Clogged drains, cracked pipes, and leaky fixtures can all cause sudden damage that is expensive to repair. The earlier you identify the problem, the easier it is to repair, which is one reason maintenance is so important. When our technicians thoroughly inspect your drains, fixtures, and pipes at least once a year, they can ensure each individual part is functioning properly and identify issues early while they are still easy and relatively inexpensive to fix.
Completing thorough maintenance inspections is important for extending the lifetime of your plumbing system. Our technicians will check the following parts of your plumbing system to ensure the inspection is thorough.
- Pipes: We inspect all pipes thoroughly to check them for cracks or leaks. If we discover a leaky connection, we will apply a sealant to keep the pipe functioning.
- Fixtures: We examine toilets, tub drains, and sink faucets to ensure they are functioning properly. If faucets drip continuously or water drains too slowly from the tub, we know there is a problem that needs to be resolved.
- Drains: We ensure water drains steadily from your sinks and tubs. If water drains slowly or we notice strange sounds from the toilet when you run your dishwasher or washing machine, we know there is a problem with your draining system.
If these three types of plumbing parts pass inspection, your system is likely working properly. However, our technicians will go the extra mile and look for pools of water underneath pipes and check for the musty odor that indicates aging pipes. If your pipes are old, we may apply a protective sealant to extend their lifetime. We may also wrap exposed piped in insulation to protect them from freezing temperatures, which often cause pipes to crack.
While our maintenance inspections are often enough to ensure your plumbing system stays in good condition, there are a few tips you can use to keep it from malfunctioning. During cold snaps, wrap your pipes with old towels to keep them from cracking. It would help if you also let your faucets drip slowly during extremely cold weather to keep the pipes from freezing and bursting. Avoid flushing anything except bath tissue down the toilet and try to unclog sink and tub drains periodically to keep them working efficiently. Finally, make it a habit to check exposed pipes for leaks at least once a week and contact Pioneer Comfort Systems immediately if you find a leak so we can diagnose the issue and resolve it quickly.
A Typical Maintenance Visit
Your home’s plumbing systems are fairly complex machines with many interconnected parts, so we take our time to thoroughly inspect them during each visit. Here’s a sample of what we do:
- Check and fix leaks in faucets and showers
- Clear slow or stopped drains
- Fix running toilets
- Check and clean faucet aerators
- Look for leaks and other issues in the garbage disposal
- Check the water pressure
- Inspect the water heater for leaks
During each maintenance visit, our expert plumbers will be sure to diagnose any emerging issues and make adjustments with efficiency in mind.
