On your endless list of things to get done around the house, a drain inspection is typically not of the highest concern. But should it be? Yes! While the happenings beneath your home may not seem like a priority, the drains and pipes which take sewage and stormwater from your home are busy working around the clock. And if they suddenly stop, trust us, you are going to know about it.
Be prepared, not caught out
Preparation is indeed key. Especially when it comes to your home’s plumbing and drainage system. Would you rather fix an issue before it becomes a crisis? Or face a week without a flushing toilet (god forbid)? Emergency plumbing is often more expensive, is needed at the most inconvenient of times and can be ongoing.
Avoid the hassle by having your drain inspected every six months and get the all clear from the team at JH Plumbing & Gas. This removes the worry of unexpected problems down the track and resolves any underlying issues that may be happening below your home.
It’s the little things
While it is easy to overlook the little things, as with anything, over time they gradually build up and up until they reach a boiling point! We see a lot of plumbing problems that had clear warning signs that were overlooked over a long period of time.
A plumbing inspection will notice these little issues before they progress into plumbing disasters! After all, a simple repair is much more ideal than an expensive major repair right?
We don’t want to tell you we told you so…
You may have noticed the emphasis on the fact that plumbing issues do not pop up out of nowhere! But it is true! Plumbing issues are sooooo very avoidable. Drain damage develops over a number of years and are more likely with older homes.
So plan ahead and invest in regular maintenance of your drain – it will save you in the long run!
Building and/or renovating
Prior to building or renovating your home it is imperative that a drain inspection is undertaken! As expected, the position of existing drains can be an obstacle to your design and construction plan. It is best to have a CCTV drain inspection done before you begin major plans.
The team at JH Plumbing & Gas can provide this service.
Clues there may already be a problem with your drain
Do you have a suspicion that there may already be a problem with your drain? Avoid ignoring this and book in a drain inspection as soon as possible. This will determine once and for all if you have any existing problems and your local plumber can quickly repair the issue on the spot in most cases.
While a drain inspection is a great recommendation for any household it is particularly useful for homes over the ten year bracket who need it most! Set your mind at ease and get your drain inspected people!
