Blocked drains, burst pipes, faulty toilets and other similar problems on your water and gas systems can be considered plumbing disasters at home. In our many years of serving clients in Point Cook, Werribee, Hoppers Crossing, Altona and the surrounding Melbourne suburbs, we have seen how these plumbing mishaps bring inconvenience to families and property owners. To avoid or make these problems easier to handle, here are some tips from our plumbing technitians:
1. Properly Plan All Your Plumbing Projects
Whenever you have to implement changes or improvements on your plumbing system at home, make sure that the project is well-thought out. Proper planning will help you save time and money as all the work will be smooth and continuous and you’ll only be buying the right amount of materials.
2. Install a Backflow Preventer
A backflow preventer is an important device to be installed on your water supply system. It is used to avoid any contamination or pollution to potable water whenever a huge leak is present either from inside your home or from the main water source system outside. If you think you don’t have this system installed in your water line, give us a call so we can help.
3. Follow Plumbing Codes
Like any other home project, see to it that your local building and plumbing regulations and codes are followed for every plumbing project that you undertake. May it be a rainwater tank installation or a new water supply system, make sure that all the work done is of high standard. This lets you ensure the safety of using the plumbing system installed and its longevity. To make this easier for you, hire a registered and licensed professional plumber.
4. Know the Layout of Your Plumbing System
It is important that you know where the pipes and connections of all the plumbing systems in your home are located. If possible, you should keep a copy of the plumbing layout. This will help you avoid any damage to your water supply or drainage system in times of home renovations or repairs. This will also make plumbing maintenances easy as you will be able to determine what and where to check.
5. Use the Right Materials
In whatever repairs or plumbing installation at home, make sure that you are using the right materials. While the piping materials guide we previously provided will indeed help you, it is best to follow the suggestions of professional plumbers. In fact, it would be best if you’ll allow them to supply the materials for you. It will further help you save time and money.
6. Conduct Yearly Check-Up & Maintenance
Hire a professional plumber to take a look at the condition of your plumbing systems at least once a year. This is to make sure that all of your water and gas lines are in proper functioning condition. This will also help identify existing problems that should be repaired to avoid plumbing disasters.
7. Hire Only Professionals
Same as using the correct materials, make sure that every plumbing job in your home is handled only by licensed and experienced plumbers. Well, look no further for a team that you can truly trust.
