It is often said the best and quickest way to learn something is to ask someone who knows. If you are like most people, you only know so much about plumbing. After all, plumbing systems are generally out of sight so they tend to be out of mind. Here is a look at five examples of things our St Cloud Plumbers know that will save you a bundle of money on plumbing and you should too.
A Leaky Faucet Can Cost Hundreds of Dollars Per Year
If you have a leaky faucet or shower head, you might be tempted to let it be simply because the cost of a repair might be more than the drip's impact on your water bill. The truth is a leaky faucet has the potential to set you back a couple hundred dollars per year. Furthermore, a slow drip will cause the gasket and/or washer to wear at a rapid rate. This wear and tear allows even more water to move beyond the valve. If this problem is not tended to, you could end up replacing the full fixture at a cost of several hundred dollars. You can prevent such a scenario with regular plumbing maintenance and the timely replacement of gaskets and washers.
A Regular Plumbing Check-up Can Pay Big Dividends
Have one of our St Cloud Plumbers inspect your system at least once per year and you will reap the reward in the form of considerable savings across time. Our plumbing experts know exactly what to look for during an annual check. We will look for current problems as well as looming issues that will only cost you that much more to repair if neglected. An annual plumbing check up will also provide us with the opportunity to evaluate the efficiency of your plumbing equipment. Let us check on your plumbing and you will rest easy knowing you have done everything possible to ensure it is in good condition and operating at full capacity.
Regular Plumbing Maintenance can Prevent Expensive Water Damage
If you have not had your plumbing system serviced in a year, it is time to reach out to our plumbing experts. A plumbing system neglected for an entire year is that much more likely to have one or several issues. The problem is you will have no idea these problems exist unless you let one of our plumbing gurus service your system on an annual basis. Regular plumbing maintenance will help prevent leaks and floods. Anyone who has dealt with water damage stemming from plumbing issues will testify just how frustrating and costly it is. Though it might be possible to partially restore water-damaged furniture, carpet and other possessions, it will cost money, take time and chew up your patience. The better solution is to prevent such water damage from occurring in the first place with an annual inspection of your system.
Plumbing Maintenance Can Even Improve Water Quality
With each passing day, more and more people are making the transition away from tap water to bottled water. This is completely unnecessary and an egregious waste of money! Part of the problem is too many people are relying on outdated, corroded or otherwise-flawed pipes and filters. Let our experienced professionals inspect, maintain and repair your system and you will rest easy knowing your tap water is as clean as possible. This way, you won't have to pay your hard-earned money simply to enjoy clean water. You can turn on the tap, fill up your pitcher or glass and enjoy perfectly clean water without worrying about whether compromised pipes altered its quality.
Preventative Plumbing Maintenance Prolongs Your Equipments Lifespan
Take a moment to think about the cost and inconvenience associated with the installation of a new plumbing system. No one wants to deal with such a hassle. Preventative plumbing maintenance maximizes the system's lifespan. A long service life is especially important for water heaters that will set you back a pretty penny when the time comes for replacement. Plumbing has the potential to last upwards of a full century depending on its condition and material. Alternatively, if you do not have annual inspections performed and neglect your plumbing, the system might only last a couple decades. There is no sense spending for a full system replacement or costly repairs when our plumbing experts' maintenance can extend the system's life for years or even decades.
