DON’T GET SUNK BY SURPRISES!
Sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets should be inspected regularly so that you can spot relatively minor problems and address them before they get out of hand and become much larger issues. Small leaks or cracks typically don’t go away on their own, and eventually, they’ll come back with a vengeance not to mention, wasted water equals wasted money!
Washing machine hoses are one of the top causes of flooding in homes, along with water heaters. Often, you are given little warning before water suddenly starts collecting on the floor of your mechanical or laundry room. A thorough inspection could potentially identify these approaching issues before they occur.
IN THE BATHROOM…
The bathroom is usually not the first room in your home that comes to mind when you think of routine maintenance, but it sure is an important one! Your toilet, for instance, has a shutoff valve, a flush valve, and a drain flapper, all of which are crucial to proper performance and water conservation. The bathtub, shower, and bathroom sink all have drains which should be routinely checked, along with water fixtures that will eventually start to fail with age and regular use. In addition, these fixtures all have ‘heads’ where the water is delivered from, and these can fall prey to mineral deposits, corrosion, and long-term wear.
WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE KITCHEN?
In the kitchen, in addition to the standard sink and faucet water hookups, home plumbing systems often include a water line to the refrigerator for an icemaker/water dispenser, connections for the dishwasher, a garbage disposal located in the cabinet below the sink, or possibly a custom faucet accessory. If ignored for extended periods, you can certainly anticipate some sort of leak problem developing, over time. Best to spot a small drip and deal with it, before it has a chance to grow to annoying proportions when you happen to be away from the house.
