3 Ways to Extend the Life of Your Plumbing

Plumbing – it’s not something you want to think about everyday. You just want to know it
works. However, it is a vital part of daily life for everyone. It’s a part of every drop of water we
drink, every shower we take, and every visit to the restroom. Though it may be easy to forget,
it’s important to take care of your plumbing. You don’t have to worry about it when
professionals are here to help! Here are three tips to extend the life of your plumbing.

Regular Servicing

The best way to fix a problem is to prevent it before it starts. Don’t underestimate the power of
preventive maintenance, which can save you thousands in the long run! An overall inspection of
your plumbing includes examining visible plumbing in the house, such as toilets, sinks, shower
drains, and more. Additionally, you can opt for sending a camera scope through the pipes to view
any clogs that may cause issues down the road. This type of preventive maintenance is
particularly vital for older plumbing nearing the end of its life. If clogs are found during routine
maintenance, The Trenchless Guys are happy to use snaking or water jetting to take care of the
problem.

Clog Prevention

Preventing clogs is another great way to get ahead of plumbing issues before they arise. Invest in
a drain stopper that catches hair that would otherwise go into the shower drain. Sweep out beard
trimmings from the sink rather than letting them go down the drain. Avoid letting food particles
go down the non-disposal side of the kitchen sink. These are just a few ways to stay ahead of
clogs!

Seasonal Inspections

Different times of year lead to different plumbing issues. In summer months, certain components
overheat. Also wildlife is out in full force, occasionally interfering with elements of the home
and plumbing. In winter, pipes freeze and burst. Consider scheduling preventive maintenance
before the most significant changes in the seasons and weather to get ahead of issues.
