Residential Plumbing Maintenance
Plumbing issues in homes have ways of quickly spiraling out of control. There is nothing worse than waiting before it’s too late to contact a plumber because the longer you wait, the more costly repairs and replacements will be. So, even when you would qualify your issue as a piece of minor maintenance, getting a professional to consult with you is always a smart move.
Even if you don’t think there’s anything particularly wrong with your home’s plumbing, here are a couple maintenance tips to make sure that you’re not doing any substantial damage to your system.
Avoid Chemical Drain Cleaners
Clogged drains are the most common household plumbing problem. Most homeowners don’t assume they need a professional to intervene because they can just go buy a bottle of chemical drain cleaner from the hardware store or pharmacy. However, they often do more harm than good.
Not only do these chemicals not remove the entire clogs, causing the problem to recur, they can actually erode your home’s pipes, making them more likely to burst or leak over time.
Don’t Sleep on Clogs
Clogs are more serious than an inconvenience. Backed-up water puts a lot of pressure on your waste pipes, which can shorten their lifespan substantially. As soon as you notice that water is draining slower than normal, contact DSL Mechanical and we can save you a lot of trouble in the long run.
Water Line Repairs
One of the more serious jobs DSL Mechanical has to deal with are water line repairs. A leaky or broken water line can damage buildings, foundations and landscaping. Plus, it can run up your water bill. Needless to say, it is very unpleasant and potentially devastating.
So be wary of these signs that your home needs a water line repair:
- Water pressure is reduced to a trickle
- Lawn looks swampy
- Soft patches and depressions in the ground have appeared around your home
- Paving, bricks or concrete around your home appear damp or unstable
- Water bill is much higher than normal
If these symptoms match what your home is going through, contact DSL Mechanical immediately. We’ll send someone over as soon as possible to inspect your home and determine how we can salvage it.
