What Is Preventive Plumbing Maintenance?

Preventive plumbing maintenance involves proactively servicing your system to extend its lifespan. Technicians inspect all water and drain lines, fixtures, and appliances connected to your plumbing. This approach identifies and addresses areas of concern through repairs or replacements to avoid sudden failures and costly emergencies.

Preventive maintenance helps avoid:

  • Leaks and burst pipes
  • Drain clogs and subsequent backups
  • Malfunctioning fixtures, like faucets and toilets
  • Sewer line blockages 
  • Water heater outages and cold showers
  • Plumbing component corrosion and wear 
  • Unexpectedly high water bills

Comprehensive Plumbing Maintenance Checklist

When you schedule your plumbing maintenance with us, our team thoroughly inspects all critical system components to cover every aspect of your system. Our maintenance checklist includes:

  • Pipe inspection for signs of wear, corrosion, or damage
  • Leak detection using advanced techniques that could lead to water damage and wasted resources
  • Drain cleaning to remove any buildup that could cause future clogs
  • Water heater checks, including the anode rod, pressure relief valve, and thermostat for optimal performance and safety
  • Toilet performance evaluation for leaks and flush efficiency to maintain proper operation
  • Faucet and fixture assessment for leaks, proper water flow, and signs of mineral buildup or corrosion
  • Sewer system inspection using a camera to identify any potential blockages or damage
  • Water pressure testing to check if it’s within a safe and efficient range
  • Backflow prevention to prevent flooding and water supply contamination
  • Water quality testing for hardness, pH levels, and contaminants to meet health standards 

How Often Should You Schedule Plumbing Maintenance?

We recommend inspecting your plumbing at least annually to keep ahead of problems. However, the ideal maintenance schedule depends on several factors, including:

  • Age of plumbing: Newer systems may need only biannual checks, while older plumbing warrants annual inspections to detect wear.
  • Water quality: Mineral-heavy well water can scale up pipes and water heaters faster than municipal water, requiring more frequent maintenance.
  • Leak history: Homes prone to leaks due to pressure fluctuations may benefit from quarterly inspections.
  • Household size: Large families who use more water daily speed up system wear, requiring semi-annual maintenance.
  • Manufacturer requirements: Adhering to manufacturer-recommended maintenance schedules for plumbing components, like water heaters, helps validate warranties and keeps your plumbing in its optimal state.

Gold Star Plumbing, Heating, & Cooling provides the preventive care your system needs for lasting reliability and efficiency. We can keep track of your maintenance history and suggest when it's time for your next inspection.
