Here are some simple tips that can help your plumbing operate at its maximum proficiency, and help you save money!
Heed the weather: Extreme temperatures can do serious damage to plumbing and to heating and air conditioning units. So if you see that the weather is going to be extremely hot or below freezing, make sure you prepare for it. Make sure pipes are insulated. Simple foam installation will usually suffice. For outdoor or exposed plumbing you cannot insulate, leave a trickle of water on so the pipes do not freeze. It is better to spend a few dollars on water than it is to replace burst pipes.
Replace water shutoff valves: Water shutoff valves break due to wear and tear as with anything. So make sure it is replaced every 5 years to prevent leaks from finished plumbing in your business or home.
Clear drains: Be it a simple kitchen drain or an extremely important storm drain, keeping the drains clean can prevent costly plumbing problems. Drains are designed to allow water to flow, so keep debris from entering the pipes. Storm drains remove excess rain water that can potentially damage the structure of your home, or your landscaping. So make sure your drains are clear and free of debris in order for it to do its job.
We hope these tips will help keep your property in good plumbing condition.
