Annual Maintenance on Fixtures
Families often ignore their Seattle home’s plumbing system until major accidents occur, but this could be a mistake in the long run.
Those that actively maintain their pipes and fixtures by scheduling annual service calls could save themselves from expensive headaches down the road. Here is a look at just a few of the benefits of preventative maintenance for your faucets, fixtures, and pipes.
There are few things that are as aggravating as a faucet that does not have sufficient pressure. Modern fixtures are designed to be relatively durable, but they also go through quite a bit of daily wear-and-tear.
Everything from slamming the handle down to sediment in the water can damage or clog the fixture and turn a powerful flow into a slow trickle. Preventative maintenance will help you avoid low pressure issues.
Prevent Serious Damage Later On
A faucet that is seriously damaged can bring your kitchen to a grinding halt. In addition to not being able to clean dishes or make coffee in the morning, families could be looking at serious water damage due to minor cracks in the pipes or broken o-rings.
Our experienced plumbers can look for signs that damage has occurred or is about to occur and then take the appropriate steps to ensure that it does not happen.
Catch Issues With Your Water Supply Early
Many families have problems with their water supply without even realizing it. Some might find that their dishes are not coming out of the dishwasher as clean as they like or they feel “slimy” after taking a shower.
Your plumber will be able to catch issues such as hard water, soft water, or sediment in your water by checking your plumbing system at least once a year. This will help Seattle homeowners protect their washing machines, dishwashers, refrigerators, and even water heaters.
Lower Your Water Bills
While the technology has been around for decades, residential plumbing systems are actually quite complex. Any component of the plumbing system that is not working efficiently could result in quite a bit of wasted water, and faucets can be especially problematic.
The United States Geological Survey has claimed that a single slow drip in a home could waste hundreds of gallons of water per year. Catching these problems as early as possible will reduce your water bill significantly.
