Preventative Plumbing Maintenance

Are you tired of dealing with unexpected plumbing issues?

Preventative plumbing maintenance is the solution you need. Here at Eastside Plumbing, we offer a variety of preventative plumbing maintenance services to ensure your plumbing system runs smoothly all year round. 

What is Preventative Plumbing Maintenance and Why You Need It

Preventative plumbing maintenance is a process of routinely inspecting, cleaning, and servicing your plumbing system to prevent future issues from arising. By taking care of your plumbing system, you can avoid costly repairs and ensure your plumbing system lasts longer. At Eastside Plumbing, we offer personalized maintenance plans to meet your unique needs. 

Benefits of Preventative Plumbing Maintenance: Save Money and Avoid Costly Repairs

Preventative plumbing maintenance offers many benefits, including saving you money in the long run. By addressing small issues early on, you can avoid larger, more expensive repairs. Additionally, preventative maintenance can help extend the lifespan of your plumbing system and improve its overall efficiency. 

Comprehensive Maintenance
Inspection Checklist

One of the most significant advantages of preventative plumbing maintenance is the thorough maintenance inspection checklist that professionals follow. This checklist ensures that every aspect of your plumbing system, from sewage pipes to garbage disposals, is inspected and serviced.

Avoid Leakage
and Save Water

Leakage is a common issue in many households and commercial properties. A small leak can result in significant water loss over time, not to mention the potential damage it can cause. Regular preventive maintenance checks can identify such leaks early on, allowing for timely repairs.

Extend the Life of
Your Garbage Disposal

Your garbage disposal is a workhorse that you don’t want malfunctioning. Preventative maintenance can help extend its lifespan by ensuring it’s clean and running efficiently. This can save you the cost and hassle of frequent replacements.

Testing Backflow
Prevention Devices

Backflow prevention devices are crucial for maintaining the quality of your water supply. Regular testing as part of your preventative maintenance plan ensures these devices are functioning correctly, thereby safeguarding your water quality.

Inventory of
Plumbing Items

During a maintenance plumbing inspection, professionals will take stock of various plumbing items you have and may need in the future. This inventory helps in planning for replacements or upgrades, so you’re never caught off guard by a malfunctioning component.

Preventive Maintenance
Checks for Sewage Pipes

Sewage pipe issues can be both hazardous and unpleasant. Regular preventive maintenance checks can identify blockages or weaknesses in the sewage pipes, allowing for preemptive action before a catastrophic failure occurs.

Fix Leaking
Faucets Promptly

Leaking faucets are not just annoying; they’re wasteful and can lead to higher water bills. Regular maintenance can identify and fix these leaks, saving you money in the long run.

Ensure Functionality of
Backflow Prevention Devices

Backflow prevention devices are essential for keeping your water supply safe and uncontaminated. A regular maintenance plumbing inspection will test these devices to ensure they are functioning as they should, providing you peace of mind.

Cost Savings in
the Long Run

While there’s an upfront cost to preventative maintenance, the long-term savings are substantial. You can significantly reduce your overall plumbing expenses by avoiding major repairs through regular checks.


Tips for Maintaining Your Plumbing at Home: Preventative Measures You Can Take

As a homeowner, there are some preventative measures you can take to maintain your plumbing system.

Importance of Regular Inspections: Catching Problems Early

At Eastside Plumbing and Gasfitting, we recommend scheduling at least annual inspections to identify any potential issues early on. This can save you money in the long run and prevent major plumbing emergencies. It can also help you plan for outages if plumbing equipment needs replacing, such as a hot water service. 

Preventative Maintenance vs. Reactive Maintenance

Reactive maintenance involves addressing issues after they arise, while preventative maintenance involves identifying and addressing potential issues before they become major problems. While reactive maintenance may seem cheaper in the short term, it can lead to more expensive repairs and downtime in the long run.  

 Preventative maintenance is the better option for maintaining the health of your plumbing system. This is especially true if your business holds expensive stock or machinery that could be water damaged. The same goes for houses where for example a simple roof leak can turn into a ceiling collapse and extensive damage to property. 

Types of Plumbing Systems We Service

Eastside Plumbing and Gasfitting service all types of plumbing systems, including residential and commercial properties. Our experienced plumbers are equipped to handle any plumbing issue you may have. And we are familiar with all the major brands of plumbing equipment and systems.

Trent Moerenhout

We couldn’t be more pleased with our initial experience and the service provided by Eastside Plumbing and Gasfitting over the last week. Had two emergencies in one week at busy times of day (4pm one day), gave them a try, and was able to rely on them to promptly attend, provide an extremely professional service, and at a reasonable price. The follow-up report and customer service are excellent; on each occasion, we received photos of the problem as well as a report. They don’t just talk the talk when it comes to service. I will definitely use them again.
