All About Home Plumbing Maintenance

home plumbing maintenance - Tureks Plumbing Services

Basic preventative plumbing maintenance in Appleton, WI, for your plumbing system can go a long way. After all, any leak, clog, or dripping faucet that is left unattended only worsens. That’s why we at Turek’s Plumbing Services recommend that regular preventative maintenance is done on the plumbing system of your residential or commercial property. Such an exercise helps professionals to spot and fix problems early. For this reason, we encourage all Fox City homeowners to give us a call anytime you need residential plumbing services.

Drain Maintenance

You wouldn’t be wrong if you mentioned that drains are one of the most vital components of the plumbing system. Without drains, water and other forms of waste wouldn’t be able to flow out of your home. The net result is that the toilet, kitchen sinks, washing machines, and showers wouldn’t work as you expect them to. 

It is, therefore, vital that you do what you can to avoid having to deal with a clogged drain. Fortunately, periodic drain maintenance is usually sufficient to prevent most drain issues. For those that do occur, our plumbers in Fox City are available to address those defects, so you don’t have to.

How do you keep drains working? One way we recommend to keep drains working properly is by being conscious about the things that go down the drains. For example, getting rid of feminine hygiene products in toilets is a sure way to clog up the toilet drain in just the same way as dumping grease down a sink will eventually clog it up. You can also buy a biodegradable drain cleaner and regularly use it to keep your drains clean and free from deposits. Contact a plumber in Appleton for help in choosing the best product since many on the market are acidic or caustic and can damage the plumbing pipes.

Plumbing System Inspection

As you may be aware, the plumbing system is a complex network of valves, pipes, taps, and drains. All these components work collectively to keep water flowing through the system. If one of these components develops a defect, the problem is likely to affect other aspects of the system, and soon enough, you will notice that something isn’t right.

To ensure that everything remains working perfectly, it is advisable to get a plumbing system inspection says Minneapolis plumbing company, McQuillan Bros. The plumbers will conduct a detailed inspection of the plumbing system on an annual basis. 

How do you know you need a plumbing system inspection? Our experienced plumbers know what to look out for in order to fix any inefficiencies or developing defects in the plumbing system. We recommend that you invite a plumber in to conduct plumbing maintenance in Appleton, WI for the reasons listed below. 

  • You are about to buy or sell a home

  • You want to switch to a different type of water heater, such as a tankless water heater
