Your Essential Plumbing Maintenance Checklist

Plumber Writing On Clipboard with a checklist

Routine plumbing maintenance is one responsibility that a homeowner can’t afford to let slide. Do so and you’ll surely be in for costly repairs down the road. At Griffin Service, we encourage our clients to always stick to a steady maintenance routine so developing issues can be quickly pinpointed and solved right at the onset.

From your trusted plumber in Jacksonville, FL, here is your essential plumbing maintenance checklist.

Check for Leaks

Leaks are the number one cause of plumbing problems. So it’s vital to check for leaks regularly and fix them as soon as possible. You can check for leaks by looking for water stains on the walls or ceilings. Should your system spring leaks–no matter how minor–it’s vital to call a trusted plumbing company and have it dealt with right away.

Flush the System

The essential item on your maintenance checklist is flushing the system. Doing so on a consistent basis will help remove any built-up sediment or debris and keep your water running smoothly. Also, it’s good to have our professional technician check your system periodically to have any plumbing repairs that are needed.

Check the Water Pressure

Another priority is water pressure. It’s also vital to not let it drop too low or be too high. Low water pressure can be caused by several things, such as a kink in the line, a clogged filter, or a faulty valve. If you experience low water pressure, be sure to call us right away to have it fixed. High water pressure, on the other hand, can damage your system because of the excess load. The recommended pressure for homes is between 40 to 60 PSI.

Inspect the Exterior

Sometimes, maintaining your plumbing system can be as simple as giving a brief ocular inspection. The exterior will give you the signs you need to determine if there are underlying problems. Always be on the lookout for signs of water stains and mold growth. Simple inspections can help prevent any emergency plumbing needs in the future.
