Posted on June 5th, 2015
Performing routine maintenance on your pipes will help them last longer and reduce the likelihood of running into a plumbing disaster down the road. But if you’re unfamiliar with your home’s plumbing system, you may not know where to start.
The professionals of Plumbing Medic have put together the following top plumbing maintenance tips. Take care of these little projects over the weekend, and gain peace of mind!
Install screens over shower and tub drains. This will catch hair and debris before it reaches your pipes. Check on it every few weeks, and pull out anything that could clog your drains. It’ll go a long way in preventing blockages!
Lower your water pressure. Yes, a high pressure shower head can have a soothing effect. Unfortunately, a high water pressure also puts stress on your pipes, thereby making leaks more likely. If your home’s water pressure is above 85 psi, contact Plumbing Medic. We can install a pressure reducer that will save you money in the long run.
Treat your water. Arizona water is filled with minerals that can shorten the lifespan of your plumbing system. Although they are naturally-occurring, the minerals tend to build up and restrict water flow, making for a high-pressure situation. The buildup of minerals can also corrode parts of your pipes. We offer a variety of water purification options!
Caring for your plumbing system isn’t all that complicated. Follow these top plumbing maintenance tips, and your pipes should remain in good shape! Get in touch with Plumbing Medic for help:
