While the Spring season is for cleaning out your home, the new year should be the time for scheduled maintenance on your home including a plumbing checkup performed by a qualified Houston plumber. We don’t realize how much stress our plumbing systems go through in a year, so it’s important to check up on plumbing components every so often. Doing so can greatly reduce the possibility of a major plumbing issue that’s going to cost a lot more than a maintenance check-up. Why should you make this little investment now? We’ll give you 3 reasons why and what your plumber should be checking during the scheduled maintenance visit.
Reasons to Schedule a Plumbing Check-Up
You may think that a plumbing check-up only consists of the pipes, but that’s certainly not the case. While pipes are the most important part of your plumbing system, everyday appliances need a thorough check as well. Appliances, such as your water heater, are used on the daily and needs to be checked annually to ensure it’s working properly and efficiently. An inefficient appliance is costing you more on your water bill which will add up over time. Many times, a Houston plumber is able to prevent major sewage and water line disasters that are costly to fix. A plumber is able to check your plumbing system to see if there is anything weird going on such as backups, clogs, leaks, and other issues.
What Should Your Plumber Check For?
If you’re using a qualified plumber, such as one of Santhoff’s wonderful team members, they should check a multitude of components. Everything from the toilets, drains, faucets, water heaters, shut-off valves, and even washing machines and dishwashers should be given a once over. A plumber can check if there is a possibility of an issue arising and give you solutions for the issues. Once your Houston plumber is done with their maintenance check-up, they should provide you with an overall list of what was checked, what was working well, and what might need repairs or replacements. From there, you are able to decide what you would like to do with your plumbing system. You can also ask for advice from your plumber on how to keep your system running as smoothly as possible. There are many tricks and tips that they have up their sleeve that you may not know about.
