How to prevent plumbing nightmares in your home

October 10, 2019

Every homeowner has experienced the dreaded plumbing nightmare at one stage – whether it has been a burst pipe to a leaking tap, the damage caused can be both annoying and costly.

So how can you prevent some of these plumbing issues rearing their ugly heads in your home? Well not all are completely predictable, but there are some that can be rectified before turning into a nightmare.

We recommend the following tips to ensure you stay on top of your home plumbing:

1. Check your pipes regularly

It may seem extreme to routinely check the pipes and drains of your home, but general wear and tear of most plumbing systems can be seen by the naked eye.

If youre pipes or drains are looking worn or you can spot a small leak or drip, give your local plumber a call to get the problem sorted as soon as possible.

A burst pipe from the toilet or underneath the kitchen or bathroom sinks are one of the most common forms of home flooding, so a regular check will hopefully prevent this plumbing issue becoming a nightmare in your home.

2. Unclog your drains

If you know your kitchen or bathroom sink is blocked, don’t continue to ignore it. Instead, try unblocking it yourself or call an expert plumbing team out for assistance.

Blocked drains can lead to serious damage to your plumbing, so don’t leave it untreated and avoid the costly nightmare in your home.

3. Maintain your appliances

From fridges to dishwashers and washing machines, all our home appliances require regular maintenance and upkeep to ensure they are running properly and no damage is being done to the plumbing system they are hooked up to.

If your fridge, washing machine or dishwasher is leaking, making odd noises or is not running as it should, call an expert out to take a look and give it a service; it may seem like an expense not required – but the damage it could cause in your home will be much more of a costly exercise in the clean up should something go wrong.
