An Ounce of Prevention
Commercial and Residential Plumbing Maintenance
We highly recommend doing plumbing maintenance and routine plumbing check-ups. You might be thinking that you’ll find out what needs fixing when it breaks, or you might not be thinking about it at all! But like the old saying goes, ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’. The plumbing repair and water damage costs, loss of priceless valuables, and the inconvenient timing of a plumbing emergency greatly exceed the cost of a good plumbing check-up ahead of time. We’d like to be the plumber to help you with that.
Having a preventative plumbing maintenance plan in place is important for any home or business owner in order to stop preventable plumbing emergencies, and avoid the clean up and damage costs that often go along with it. A commercial venue has different demands than a family residence, but for both the best starting point for a good plumbing maintenance plan is to have an inspection done by a licensed plumber to determine the your exact plumbing needs.
You Can Check It Yourself, Before You Need Plumbing Repair
There are some plumbing inspection items that you can check for yourself, if you would like to. The cost to check them is very low, but the amount you save could be quite a lot.
Of course, if you prefer to have us check these things for you, we’d love to do that too! We offer comprehensive Plumbing Safety Inspections.
Once you have checked everything, you can rest easier knowing that you have been diligent in maintaining your plumbing system. However, if you do find a problem, please don’t hesitate to call us.

Here are some Do-It-Yourself Plumbing Check Ideas:
D-I-Y: Check Your Water Pressure
In most homes the water pressure should be between 45-65psi.
Sometimes it can be as high as 400psi! That’s no bueno.
If your water pressure is higher than 80psi, the excessive pressure is shortening the lifespan of many plumbing fixtures in your home and will cause premature failure.
D-I-Y: Check Your Shut-Off Valves
Check the functionality of the emergency shut-off valves in your home or business by turning them on and off to be sure they are not frozen in place. A shut-off valve is no good in an emergency if you cannot turn it off!
Know the location of all your shut-off valves, identify and label them with the piping or fixtures that they control before you need them.
D-I-Y: Check For Leaks
You can check for leaks, or evidence of a leak that may be occasional. Get a flashlight and look closely under all your sinks, in your basement/ crawlspace, and anywhere else there is plumbing. Check all existing piping for noticeable wear or defects. Make sure there are no drips or wet areas. By placing a few drops of food coloring in your toilet tank you can check if it the tank is leaking into the bowl.
