Plumbing Routine Maintenance

Here are some plumbing system maintenance reminders to help keep your home plumbing system components running smoothly:

— Examine and repair any additional hardware you have equipped on a regular basis.

— Check water softeners and ice makers often as they usually have filters that should be changed to keep them running efficiently. Consult your manufacturer’s instructions.

— Use your garbage disposal as little as possible if your home is on a septic system.

— Drain sediment build up periodically from the tank, if you have a traditional water heater. See your manufacturer’s recommendations for instructions on how to do so.

— Avoid blockages by cleaning your drains on a regular basis. A mixture of hot water and baking soda will help get rid of sediment in your sink and bathtub drain.

— Check for physical signs of wear and tear in your plumbing pipes and faucets. Catch small issues like leaks and cracks before they become big problems.

Consider the option of purchasing a home warranty. Purchased before problems arise, a home warranty plan will help deal with faulty plumbing by covering the replacement or repair of the covered components to this key system in your home.

I can come to your house and talk you through these preventive maintenance steps. Or if you have any problems with your plumbing, just call me at 615-306-0375 and I’ll take care of it for you!
