Your home is where you find your comfort and should not be dampened by water leaks or inadequate plumbing. Often water leaks and below standard plumbing go undetected before causing damage to your water pipes and home, leading to expensive repairs. To assist you in keeping your home plumbing optimal (and leak free), we have made a plumbing service guide consisting of essential plumbing services to use and tips on how to be proactive.
Whether you’re buying a new home or have been living in your home for years, a regular plumbing inspection is a good step in keeping your plumbing system healthy. An inspection involves a thorough examination of:
Adding a sewer and drain system inspection will ensure that both your inside and outside plumbing is covered. A specialized fiber optic camera is used to travel through your sewer system, which will highlight any material build ups or broken pipes which may be present. Once completed, an accurate estimate of repair costs is provided so you know the cost upfront if any repairs are needed. Both of these services will ensure early detection of any possible defects and provide a chance for repair before any serious incidents occur.
Leaks could cause serious damage to your water pipes, home, and even health. Damp surfaces, often caused by leaks, result in mold growths, damaged flooring and may permanently affect your homes plumbing system. Once you have detected a leak, contact a professional plumber like Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric as soon as possible to ensure the leak is repaired speedily and professionally and limit any damage that may be caused.
Ensure any leaks, pipe bursts or floods are detected early by installing a water protection device into your home. There are two protection devices which can be used. WaterCop ® is a device installed at the main water line and used for the detection of floods. PipeBurst Pro TM is able to detect water leaks at specific points, via sensors, and remotely shuts off the water supply to prevent further leakage and damage to your property.
Continuous use of harsh, chemically produced drain cleaning products will affect the durability of your water pipes and lead to pipe corrosion. Natural drain cleaning products assist in breaking down organic wastes (such as food, grease and sewerage) without causing harm to your homes pipes. At Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric, we use Bioclean® which is produced using enzymes and bacteria, ensuring your drains are cleaned in a safe manner. If you are experiencing slow drainage, unpleasant smells or want to keep your water pipes clog free, schedule a drain clearing.
