Plumbing Maintenance Checklist

Your home is probably your biggest investment in life. It demands proper care and maintenance so it’s important to stay on top of routine maintenance tasks. And one of the biggest areas in your home that needs routine maintenance is your plumbing system. 

Here is your plumbing maintenance checklist:

Clear Your Drains & P-Traps

How often do you clear your drains and p-traps? You should clean your drains and p-traps every couple of months. Take a couple of minutes to clean out your drains and p-traps of any debris.

Clean Faucet Aerator & Sink Sprayer 

You should be cleaning your faucet aerator and sink sprayer on a regular basis. Over time it can become clogged with debris and mineral deposits, which will decrease water pressure and reduce the amount of water coming out of your faucet. 

Inspect All Visible Pipes

You should be inspecting all visible pipes for any signs of corrosion. You might spot rust or even a blue or green deposits, which is a sign that you’ll experience a leak in your pipes. 

Check for Leaks

You should check your home for leaks because regardless if their big or small it can be destructive. Checking for leaks in your home can help you to avoid costly water bills and substantial damage to your home. Some of the most common water leaks can be found on leaking toilets, water heaters, washing machines, sinks and showers, and refrigerators and dishwashers.

Maintain Water Heater 

Your water heater is the most important part of your home. It provides hot water for washing dishes and taking a shower. If you don’t maintain your water heater, you’ll start to see signs of wear and tear. You should be flushing your water heater every year, as well as replacing the anode rod too.
