How to Extend the Life of Your Plumbing System

Temecula PlumberHiring a plumber to fix severe plumbing issues can be costly, so it's a good idea to keep your household plumbing in good condition with a little preventative maintenance. Taking care of your system can save you a lot of money and headaches in the long run.

1. Preventative Maintenance

The first thing you should do is get regular, routine preventative maintenance from a qualified plumber. It's much less costly to get this done regularly than to pay for repairs if you let something go so long it becomes an urgent matter. Have a plumber check pipes, faucets, drains, and other areas to be sure there are no leaks or damage that could lead to major repairs.

2. Repair Small Issues Immediately

One of the most common reasons for extensive and costly repairs is failing to get small issues repaired quickly. It may be tempting to hold off on small repairs because you don't want to spend the money to get them fixed, but this can lead to disasters that cost thousands of dollars to clean up. Always get small issues taken care of before they have a chance to get worse.

3. Prevent Clogs

Many potential problems can be averted simply by taking measures to prevent clogs. You can have drain covers installed in bathtubs, showers, and sinks. This will help prevent many common causes of clogs such as hair and small items. Also, be sure you don't flush anything down your toilet other than toilet paper, and don't let hair, grease, or large food particles go down the drain.

4. Winterize Your Pipes

Many of the most costly plumbing problems happen in the winter when pipes freeze. Be sure you have your plumber check your water heater each year in the fall, and have your pipes and water heater insulated to protect them from freezing temperatures.

You may think the cost of preventative maintenance is too much, but you'll spend far less money in the long run if you take care of your plumbing rather than using the wait-and-hope method.

You may get lucky and not end up with extremely costly repairs, but a little attention spent on a regular basis will lessen the likelihood that you'll end up with a disaster you truly can't afford.
