Preventative Plumbing Maintenance Tips

Preventative Plumbing Maintenance Tips

Feb 14

Prevention is absolutely vital for a homeowner if you want to save time, money and headaches. Work is busy, family life is even busier and you just don’t have time to worry about fixing a leak or a malfunction. To help stop these issues from ruining your day, try using these helpful prevention tips:

Drain Maintenance

Every three months it might be a good idea to try and break up some deposits in your home’s drains. There might not be a clog, but taking fifteen minutes out of your weekend to do this preventive maintenance could help you save BIG:

  • Pour ½ cup of salt down your sink’s drain.
  • Wait several minutes and then pour boiling the water down to wash it away.
  • It’s that simple!

Upgrade Fixtures

Upgrading plumbing fixtures might seem like a useless expense, but it really can be more cost-effective in the long run. An old shower head, toilet or faucet could be hurting the environment and your wallet if it is old and inefficient. A new fixture will require less repairs and it will save you money on utilities.

Drain Your Water Heater

If you have an old water heater and no water softener, your unit has probably built-up sediment that is causing it to work inefficiently. This sediment can also damage the unit and cost you big on repairs. To try and get ahead of sediment build-up, drain your unit at the start of every season.
