Benefits of a yearly plumbing maintenance call
It’s good for Orlando Fla. residents to remember that just because they don’t run the risk of pipes freezing over the winter doesn’t mean they don’t have to do a yearly inspection. No matter where you’re located, there’s a need to keep an eye on one of the most crucial systems in your house. If you are on a septic system, I’m not telling you something you don’t know. Consider though, that when you are getting your septic system pumped, you can get the pipes cleared as well. In fact, even those people that use the public sewer and water systems need regular maintenance.
If you’ve never had your system maintained, then it’s not running as well as it did when it was brand new. Over time, hair, sediment, maybe even an old ring or two, have built up in your drain system. This impedes the flow and can cause slowdowns. If you happen to be running a business that relies heavily on using the drain, like a meat market or restaurant, the grease and other debris that’s washed down the drains on a daily basis can build up. Getting your drains cleared once a year can save you a big repair bill.
If you’re wondering what’s involved with clearing pipes as a maintenance issue, the best answer is hydro jetting. There certainly are other methods of clearing pipes, which includes rooters and bladders. These methods are used mostly for clearing clogs. Though they may be capable methods for clearing, they don’t clean the inside of the pipes like hydro jetting does.
The most important thing to check on the water supply system is the water heater. A plumber can test the elements to see if they are drawing an undue amount of power. If they are, you’ll probably enjoy a drop in you power bill buy getting them replaced. The hot water system can get complex with added heaters or hot tubs. All the more reason to have them inspected once a year.
