Your plumbing system is one of the most important components of your home. It consists of pipes and fixtures that remove wastewater from your home and bring portable water in. A functional plumbing system plays a major role in maintaining the habitability of the property.
A dysfunctional plumbing system with leaking or damaged pipes can wreak havoc on your home’s structures. It can bring life to a standstill. Depending on the nature of the plumbing problem, a sewage backup can occur, contaminated sewage water can enter your home.
Ignoring plumbing issues, no matter how minor they might seem, could prove to be a costly mistake. A leaky faucet- often considered a minor plumbing issue can waste more than 3,000 gallons of water every year.
Plumbing systems can be categorized as-sanitary drainage systems, portable water systems and stormwater drainage systems.
- Sanitary drainage systems:A sanitary drainage system consists of pipes designed to remove wastewater from different parts of the home including the kitchen, bathroom, laundry, and toilets
- Portable water systems:These systems comprise pipes connected to the main supply. Valves (can be used to cut off the water supply) are installed at different points. A portable water system allows the user to install meters to measure water use
- Stormwater drainage systems:A stormwater drainage system has several covered holes to carry wastewater away from the house. Older systems used these holes to transport wastewater to the main sanitary system. Most stormwater drainage systems manufactured these days use these drains to drain rainwater
Like every other system in your home, your plumbing system needs regular care. Regular maintenance addresses current issues and nips potential problems in the bud before they pop up.
Preventive maintenance can save you hundreds of dollars on repairs and headaches down the road. Unlike a poorly maintained plumbing system that can develop a problem and stop working any time of the day, even night, a well-maintained plumbing system is reliable.
During maintenance sessions, Rohnert Park plumbers perform several tests. They check different plumbing components to see if they’re working properly and address issues before things take a turn for the worse.
Regular maintenance allows your plumbing contractor to track the health of your plumbing system. If a particular component is aging or is damaged beyond repair, your contractor will repair or replace it before it fails.
During a plumbing maintenance session, your plumber will
- Check the pipes and fittings for leaks
- Look for any signs of water damage on your walls or near cupboards
- Check the toilets to see if they flush properly
- Clean all your drains
- Check the water pressure in the kitchen, bathroom and other rooms
