Common Problems Found During Plumbing Maintenance

Plumbing repairs can be quite a hassle, but you can protect your system by calling a professional for plumbing maintenance today. The best way to make sure your pipes, garbage disposal, and water heater continue to work the best that they can is by scheduling this service once a year. Here at Ardon Maintenance, we’ve found that many homeowners are unaware of problems in their plumbing systems until they schedule maintenance. Here are some of the most common problems we find.

  • Leaks: Plumbing leaks can drive up your water bill, and they may indicate serious problems in your pipes. While leaks may affect your water pressure or cause water spots around the home, homeowners are sometimes unable to spot the signs of leaks before it’s too late. And leaks around the home may attract mold and mildew, leading to health problems. A trained plumber can find and seal leaks, and determine the cause in order to prevent your pipes from leaking in the future.
  • Mineral Buildup: Another common issue which homeowners may be unaware of is mineral deposits in the pipes. Mineral deposits result from a problem with hard water. If your water supply contains too many minerals like calcium and magnesium, it may cause problems with the pipes in your home. Deposits build along the insides of pipes, reducing the water pressure, and eventually the pipes may need replacement. A plumber can let you know whether this is a potential problem for your home during a maintenance visit.
  • Corrosion: Another serious problem that may be caught during maintenance is corrosion. The technician may notice corrosion in your water heater or in your pipes. In either case, it may mean that it’s time for replacement. While it may be alarming to discover that you need a new water heater or new pipes, finding out early is better than waiting for a major leak.

While these problems are found from time to time, maintenance can also give you peace of mind knowing that your plumbing system is in better shape than it was before.
