Whether you have realized it or not, there are many plumbing fixtures in your home that make your life more pleasant and satisfying. And that is not to mention all the hundreds of feet of pipes that carry water to your home and drain waste into the sewer system.

To keep these many plumbing fixtures in good working condition, you need to perform periodic preventive maintenance. This is not that difficult and will only require a few tools that you can purchase at your local hardware store. You should have a pair of pliers and a screwdriver to accomplish your preventive maintenance checks. Here are a few of the items that should appear on your list of plumbing fixtures to check.

Preventive Maintenance Checklist

 Your air conditioning and furnace need to have the blower filters replaced at least every three months. Also, remove any weeds that have grown around the air conditioning condenser, located outside your home on a concrete slab. Also, check for water leaking .

  • Check your faucets. Any that are dripping need to have the valve stems seals replaced. If the there is a lot of water leaking from the base of the faucet housing, it may be necessary to replace the worn-out faucet assembly.
  • Check your tubs and sinks. If you notice black mold forming on the caulking around these fixtures, replace the caulking. Be sure to adequately remove any mold located behind the old caulking before applying a new bead.
  • Test the sump pump. Do this by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. The water should disappear within a few seconds. If it does not, contact your local Roto-Rooter service.

If any of the systems that you check during your preventive maintenance rounds are faulty or in need of replacement, your friends in the plumbing business will take care of it for you. We will provide you with a detailed estimate of any materials and labor needed for the project so there will be no surprises when you get your bill. We also practice cleanliness in our work and guarantee that the worksite will appear just the same as we found it when we finish.
