Noisy Pipes: Tips on Preventive Maintenance Issues

Noisy Pipes: Tips on Preventive Maintenance Issues

Those noisy pipes in Calgary sound about the same as they do in any other part of the great nation of Canada. The reason is usually uneven pressure in a loose pipe that causes it to bang against a floor joist or a solid fixture installed nearby. The noise is often not deafening, but it might jolt you out of a deep sleep as you are lying in your bed in an otherwise calm and peaceful home.

The middle of the night is not the best time to experience plumbing issues. However, it’s good to know that your friends from Roto-Rooter will be at your door anytime, day or night, if you have a plumbing emergency. They will arrive in their truck, loaded with all the tools and supplies necessary to fix virtually any kind of plumbing problem.

Perhaps your air conditioner stopped working during the hottest part of the night–usually right around midnight in some areas. Just pick up the phone and give Roto-Rooter a call. Within a few moments, an experienced repairman will be tapping lightly on your door. He will diagnose the problem and write up an estimate of all the costs associated with the repair. Then he will quickly begin fixing the problem.

Having a dependable plumbing specialist on-call can give you great peace of mind. You know that if there is a crisis or emergency, he will be at your door in a flash, ready to go to work. You also know that because you believe in preventive maintenance, you are aware of when your fixtures are ready to be repaired or whether they are getting old enough to warrant complete replacement.

However, some folks are new to the plumbing scene. Here are a few tips for staying on top of plumbing issues in your home. The first thing you should do is take an inventory of all your fixtures and make a list. That way, you can mark-off those fixtures when you do your routine checks. You should include the food disposal, drain P-traps, hot water heater, air conditioning system, sump pump, and all of your toilets, tubs, and sinks including all visible pipes and even those noisy pipes that might keep you up at night.

In each of these systems and fixtures, check for leaks, properly working implements, and unusual noises that might indicate a serious problem. Call Roto-Rooter if you notice any complications.
