The Right Plan
Having a good preventative maintenance plan in place is critical for any home or business owner to avoid plumbing emergencies and the large cost of clean up and damage repair. The most important part of having a preventative maintenance plan in place is to have the right plan. A busy restaurant has different needs than a single family home. The best starting point for a good preventative maintenance plan is to have an inspection done by a competent plumbing service professional to determine the exact plumbing needs of an individual plumbing system.
Why not wait until it breaks?
The subsequent water damage repair costs and loss of irreplaceable valuables, far outweighs the unexpected timing of an emergency to save money.
A Water Pressure Test Is Easy To Take
Check your water pressure!
In most homes the water pressure is 45-65 psi. Sometimes it can be over 140 psi going into a home. Low water pressure issues are rare, and the low pressure is caused by something else. State plumbing code calls for water pressure to be brought down from anything over 80 psi with a pressure-reducing valve. High water pressure wreaks havoc on domestic water piping and all apertures connected to it until the high pressure is brought down. High water pressure causes the toilet fill valve, water heater, faucet cartridges and washers to break fast. The constant banging and jolting on the pipes make them prone to break inside the wall, or on a braided steel supply line. Installing a pressure-reducing valve with the proper thermal expansion protection will eliminate a high pressure problem. A water pressure test is easy to take, and can be done in less than 1 minute.
