Common Plumbing Problems
As a homeowner, you know that your home is full of appliances and fixtures that could break or wear out at any moment. Fortunately, they don’t. In fact, most of the mechanical items in your home are very hardy and will last a long time if they are maintained properly throughout the year. However, you have probably experienced drain clogs or toilets that won’t flush. Perhaps you have encountered a water heater that is full of sediment and needs to be drained.

If you establish a preventive maintenance program for your home, you will be on top of any problematic systems in your home. You will know when a drain is starting to show signs of clogging. You will be able to point out the toilet that is going to need a new float valve soon. You will know exactly how long ago the filters were replaced in your air conditioning and furnace systems. If your home has not had preventive maintenance, today is a good time to start a program.

A Home Preventive Maintenance Program 

  • Filters should be changed every three months
  • Flush the hot water heater
  • Test the sump pump
  • Remove the corrosion and hard water build-up from any plumbing fixtures containing moving parts
