The plumbers at A+ Plumbing, Heating & Cooling know how tedious the upkeep of your drains, pipes, shower and toilet can be.  Although tedious, it is important to create a preventative maintenance plan to ensure that you plumbing system is working correctly and efficiently.

  • Scheduling regular maintenance appointments can save you years when it comes to your water heater. Because it’s used daily, you should have it inspected at least once a month. To prevent overheating, move the dial knob to 115 degrees. To ensure that water is being released, check the temperature and pressure on a regular basis. If there isn’t a gurgling sound, this could be a sign of a future issue.
  • If your plumbing system has a rubber hose, consider a metallic one instead. If your structure is more modern, it will have a more comprehensive plumbing system. Keep this in mind and look for any indications of problems. To make sure moisture or water isn’t being trapped, check for cracks on ceilings, wall and floors. The trapping of this water could indicate weak construction methods, but it’s still best to replace rubber hoses with a more durable material.
  • It goes without saying that you’ll probably encounter a clogged drain at some point. From food to hair, the possibilities are endless as to what can clog your drain. Prevent your drain from constant clogging by drain cleaning.
  • Schedule regular tune ups to your plumbing system from A+ Plumbing, Heating & Cooling. We can identify difficult issues that may go unseen by the blind eye.
