Preventative Maintenance

We take our plumbing system for granted when it’s working well but are quick to miss it when a fault occurs. Routine maintenance of your home plumbing system can drastically reduce repair costs down the track. The most common plumbing problems are clogged drains and toilets, leaky faucets and pipes, water heater issues, low water pressure, and a running toilet. We are experts at fixing these problems, but more importantly we can proactively perform preventative maintenance on a routine basis to keep your home running smoothly.

Check for leaks inside and outside your home

As the wet weather comes and goes in Brisbane, the ground that your water main and sewerage outlet sits in swells and sinks. This places pressure on your plumbing which can cause breaks in your pipes. For your water main, the smallest of breaks can lead to a water leak which may not be evident either at the site or be signalled by a drop in pressure. Become acquainted with your water meter and take readings from your own water meter as well as monitoring your usage via your water bill. If required, your water utility provider will most likely offer a service where they will come to your home and clean out your water meter box and ensure your water meter is in good condition. For your sewerage outlet, cracks could lead to tree roots and organic matter clogging your pipe. Watch for wet or green patches in your yard or slow draining drains in your home. Getting to these problems early can mean big savings in the future.

Other tips to keeping your plumbing healthy and drains clear are:

  • Keep your water heater running smoothly, follow the manufacturer’s directions
  • Use drain covers in your shower and kitchen sink to prevent clogs
  • Don’t put grease and cooking oils into your drains
  • Run hot water down your kitchen drain after washing dishes
  • Refrain from using caustic/corrosive chemical drain cleaners, a mix of salt and hot water with vinegar can work just as well
  • Don’t use your toilet as a rubbish bin
