The biggest plumbing nightmares are huge leaks and totally clogged drains. Huge leaks can cause flooding and waste of large amounts of water. Totally clogged drains will also cause flooding, hassles and property damage.
How to prevent those from happening? They do occur from time to time due to things outside your control. But you can still prevent some of the events from occurring if you allow plumbing professionals to do regular inspection and maintenance of your plumbing and drain systems.
This is especially important for families moving into a new home. It’s recommended to check for leaks especially in relatively old homes. Water pipes in old homes might have already warped, broken or collapsed due to the usual wear and tear.
Even relatively new homes could have warped and weak water pipes as well. That’s why it’s recommended to allow professionals to do the inspection. Most pipes are hidden beneath floors and walls. Professionals use specialised equipment to pinpoint the possible leaks before they wreak havoc to your property.
Don’t wait for the drains to be totally blocked. Most of the time, the clogs are only partially obstructing the flow of water and dirt. But the clogs can get bigger and more solid because of accumulation. In addition, small clogs can still slow down the flow of wastewater (which could still flood the area).
If you’ve noticed that your toilets and sinks are slow to drain, DIY methods might work at first. But sooner or later, the problem will return or get worse. That’s because you haven’t dealt with the root of the problem.
In contrast, drain professionals can get to the root of the problem. They will use powerful tools to completely clear up the clog. They could also determine if the root of the problem is a collapsed drain pipe (which blocks flow).
