Essential Plumbing Maintenance Tips
Performing routine maintenance and inspections can help you prevent plumbing issues and expensive repairs. To perform effective plumbing maintenance, it's important to understand the key components of your plumbing system. The primary components include:
- Water supply system. The main water supply line that brings water into your property and the shut-off valve controls the water flow.
- Drainage system. The drainage pipes carry wastewater out of your property and the septic tank (if applicable) holds and treats the wastewater.
- Water heater. This appliance (usually located in the basement or utility closet) heats water that’s used throughout your property.
Here are some essential plumbing maintenance tips:
- Check for leaks. Inspect all visible pipes, faucets, and showerheads for leaks. Leaks can cause water damage to floors, walls, and ceilings, and can also waste a significant amount of water; they can also signal that you have a more serious plumbing issue.
- Clean faucet aerators. Mineral deposits can form in your faucets, inhibiting water flow. Clean faucet aerators annually to maintain proper water pressure.
- Clear drains regularly. Clogged drains can cause backups and overflows, leading to water damage and unsanitary conditions. Use a plunger or drain cleaner to clear drains regularly.
- Inspect toilets. Check for leaks around the base of your toilets and make sure that they flush properly. A faulty toilet can cause significant water damage.
- Maintain your water heater. Drain your water heater regularly to prevent sediment buildup, which can reduce its efficiency and lifespan.
- Test the water pressure. High water pressure can cause damage to your plumbing system. Use a water pressure gauge to test your water pressure annually and adjust if necessary.
- Schedule professional maintenance. Hire a licensed plumber to perform an annual maintenance check on your plumbing system. This can help detect potential issues early and save you money in the long run.

Fast Efficient Service! “I just would like to say how courteous and kind our installer Jason was. He came in and went straight to work, installing our two toilets. He was straight to the point in doing the work, cleaned up, and hauled off the old toilets.” - The Alexanders
