When it comes to your property’s plumbing, being proactive instead of reactive can save you time, money, and countless headaches.
Preventative plumbing maintenance jobs are performed while your plumbing is still operational. This type of regular maintenance reduces the risk of you experiencing an unexpected equipment breakdown and other damages that could otherwise come about.
Short and long-term savings with preventative plumbing
Regularly carrying out preventative plumbing tasks means:
- Uncovering unknown clogged pipes and drains, leaks, and sewer lines
- Reducing your water consumption by properly identifying leaking appliances, taps, and toilets
- Avoiding unexpected and unwelcome costs to repair not only plumbing equipment but other affected areas like your walls, your flooring, and your roof
Being proactive can significantly extend the life of your entire plumbing system. By ensuring that the infrastructure is in top condition, you can prevent potential issues before they become bigger problems.
Preventative plumbing also means creating a safer home or workspace. For example, ensuring that your pipes or hot water cylinder aren’t about to burst not only helps prevent property damaging floods. It can also eliminate the risk of electrocution by keeping your electrical wiring away from water.
Your preventative plumbing checklist
Having a preventative plumbing maintenance program in place gives property owners peace of mind, knowing that their plumbing is working just as it should and at optimal levels.
1. Annual plumbing inspections
Set aside a day or a month each year to visually inspect the plumbing on your property and to check for leaks as well as unusual noises. Even something as basic as a leaky tap can be an indication that there are bigger issues afoot and is something that should be addressed by a plumber.
2. Hot water systems
Whether residential or commercial, your hot water system should be routinely inspected to ensure the efficiency and the longevity of your system. Simply having the unit serviced on a regular basis can prevent a nasty burst of near-boiling hot water flooding your property!
A JEDI Plumbing hot water general checkup includes looking for any leaks and damage, ensuring that the pipes and parts are in proper working order, conducting a valve safety check, and adjusting the temperature or thermostat if necessary.
This is particularly true for commercial properties when unknown items like oil, paint, grease or baby nappies may have been flushed. All of these items can have a substantial negative impact on your plumbing.
Our team of plumbers use CCTV drain cameras to inspect and identify potential blockages, including tree roots which could be damaging your unseen plumbing. All blockages are quickly removed so that the water in your pipes continues to flow smoothly to and from your property.
Keep your home watertight and your roof functioning as it should with a regular roof and gutter inspection. Routinely cleaning both means that water is being properly drained away from your property, and an inspection will leave you with the confidence that there are no cracks, leaks, or previous damage which could cause costly property repairs.
5. Gas fittings
