What to Expect During a Routine Plumbing Checkup

Did you know that your plumbing system occasionally needs a tuneup? If not, you’re not alone. Most homeowners are unaware that their plumbing system needs regular maintenance.

 Plumbing tuneups and maintenance are best performed by a professional plumber. While there are some things you can do to maintain a functioning plumbing system, a qualified technician is trained to notice small indications of a larger issue. During a routine plumbing tune-up, a technician is likely to:


◦Look for any signs of leaks in pipes that is visible or exposed.

 ◦Test the water pressure. Low pressure could be an indicator of sediment in the lines, while pressure that is too high can lead to breakdowns in the system.

◦Look for any broken or cracked tiles around sinks, showers or close to pipes. These could be a signal of past or present water damage

 ◦Check for leaks around faucet handles when  in use or when turned off, to ensure there is no water being wasted.

 ◦Check washer hoses for signs of deterioration or leaks.

 ◦Check each drain, sink and shower for rapid drainage. A clear drain should have a full swirl while draining.

 ◦Check toilets for leaks, and to ensure there are no worn or broken parts that need repair/replacing.

 ◦Check the water heater for signs of rust and flakes, and also check for proper flame.
