Plumbers: Always Ready to Fix Your Systems

You see the Roto-Rooter plumbers in Sarasota as they drive around in their trucks, which are loaded with plumbing parts and equipment. If you call them, they will respond day or night, seven days a week to repair or install any plumbing fixture in your home. The only surprises our technicians will give you are good ones. They know their business because they keep up with all the latest techniques and trends in plumbing. They will kindly provide you with an estimate of the costs associated with your plumbing repairs and installations and then professionally get the job done.

However, as a homeowner, there are a few things you can do to keep your home’s appliances checked and in good repair without calling a plumber. To get you started on your preventive maintenance program, check out these tips.

Sump System

If your home is located in an area with a high water table, you probably have a sump pump located in your basement or under your home’s crawl space. To prevent flooding in your home, check the pump at least once a year. The easiest way to do this is to simply pour a bucket of water into the sump pit. If the system works correctly, the water will be whisked away in just a few seconds. If the pump does not come on, call Roto-Rooter immediately.

Water Heater

Your water heater needs to be checked a few times a year. Make sure there is free airflow around the burner area. Clear any debris, trash, or even laundry, from this area to prevent potential hazards. Make sure the top air vents are also cleared of any obstacles that could prevent free airflow. Flush your heater tank every few years. This will increase your tanks efficiency, since sediment will build-up over time and prevent your tank from filling to full capacity. Replace the tank anode rod as often as necessary.

Air Conditioner

Your air conditioner often goes unnoticed because like the other appliances in your home, it does its job seamlessly day in and day out. However, if it breaks down, you will feel unhappy as your home becomes unbearably hot. Keep any weeds or debris cleared away from the condenser unit that sits outside on the cement pad. Blow out the fins and fan area using a leaf blower. Check the evaporator inside your home periodically and keep it clean and dust free. Change the blower filters for your unit every three months, or even more often if your home’s air is typically dusty.
