Whether it’s dishwashers, washing machines, or toilets that quietly flush waste away, life would be unrecognizable without modern plumbing systems. A lot of what keeps these systems running smoothly is hidden behind layers of drywall and flooring.

Plumbers are responsible for installing, maintaining, repairing, and replacing each section of a plumbing system. If you have ever experienced a problem with your plumbing system, you will know how important the plumbing services they offer are.

In this article, we’ve put together a list of the most common types of plumbing services as well as reasons why each service is necessary.

Scheduled Maintenance

Looking after your plumbing system is essential if you want to keep your life from grinding to a halt. Routine maintenance services help you to fix small plumbing issues before they progress into major problems. Plumbing maintenance includes:

  • Detecting leaks
  • Unclogging drains
  • Servicing water heaters

In South Florida, your routine maintenance plan should also include protecting your home from harsh conditions during hurricane season as well as general wear and tear.

Fixture Installation

Are you remodeling your en-suite? It’s best to trust a licensed plumber when installing any new plumbing fixtures. Plumbers are well-versed in the ways the various components of your plumbing system fit together. This allows them to install fixtures correctly, efficiently, and in a way that meets the building codes of your city.

You should schedule a plumber to help you with installing the following:

  • Faucets
  • Toilets
  • Shower heads
  • Water Heaters
  • Dishwashers
  • Washing machines
  • Refrigerators
  • Home water filtration systems
  • And more!

If you’re renovating your home, you should schedule an appointment with a local plumber to help with the repositioning of pipework.

Inspections & Diagnostics

During a plumbing inspection, plumbers look out for signs of plumbing leaks or damage throughout your home. During a typical plumbing inspection, plumbers will check up on:

  • Gas lines
  • Water heater
  • Home water filtration system
  • Drains
  • Toilet flush mechanisms

Once a plumber has inspected your plumbing system they’ll know if it requires deeper diagnostic testing. Plumbing diagnostics deals with any hidden issues within your plumbing system. It measures the condition of your plumbing system and tells your plumber what’s going on behind the drywall. Some of these tests make use of specialized equipment and tools.

Emergency Repairs

Small plumbing issues can escalate quickly, so it’s important to treat all repairs with a sense of urgency. Plumbers know when a component needs a repair, a replacement, or a combination of the two. Common emergency plumbing repairs include:

  • Clogged drains
  • Leaks
  • Water heater malfunctions
  • Gas leaks
  • Pipe failure

Some issues, like leaks, aren’t obvious emergencies. But the damage that leaks can cause to the structural integrity of your home is severe and needs to be taken seriously.

Your plumber will advise you on the urgency of the repairs, which can help you budget and plan around any disruptions to your schedule.

Room-specific Plumbing Services

If you spot a leak or require plumbing services in a specific room in your home, then your plumber will be able to help you with room-specific plumbing services.

Bathroom Plumbing Services

In bathrooms, plumbers run the show! They install shower heads, bath faucets, sink faucets, sinks, and toilets. If you have any leaks, strange sounds, or bad smells in your bathroom, your plumber can clear out blockages, mend damaged pipes, and replace faulty seals as needed.

Kitchen Plumbing Services

In kitchens, plumbers may install dishwashers and sinks, and connect some fridges to a waterline. Plumbers can also install and repair garbage disposals along with helping you reposition plumbing pipes if you are doing a kitchen renovation.

Utility Room Plumbing Services

In utility rooms, plumbers can install washing machines, dryers, and sinks if necessary. During inspections, they’ll check to ensure the connections between the machines and pipes are secure to prevent leaks.
