PHOENIX, Oct. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sinks, toilets, showers, washing machines, and dishwashers are all reliant on the home plumbing system. Homes are similar to the human body, and in that respect, the plumbing system is much like the cardiovascular system. Appliances are like the organs of the home; the plumbing system is like the veins. Just as it is important for people to take care of their body, it is important for them to take care of their home and their plumbing system.
Parker & Sons cautions that leaks are one of the most common plumbing issues. Leaks can be caused by a number of factors. Simple wear and tear can cause leaks to develop over a period of time. In places like Arizona, where hard water is common, mineral deposits can cause both leaks and clogs. Leaks waste water and money. They can also cause further damage to the home as well. Mold and mildew growth can sometimes be contributed directly to leaky pipes.
The discovery and repair of leaking pipes is a crucial aspect of routine plumbing maintenance. Hidden leaks can waste thousands of gallons of water a year. This can add a surprising amount to the monthly utility bill. Addressing these leaks will save water and money.
Parker & Sons cautions homeowners to avoid unnecessarily invasive inspections. Some plumbers might think they need to go into walls to find and address leaks. Parker & Sons uses non-invasive, high tech leak detection techniques which save on money and hassle.
Partial clogs are common in most plumbing systems. While these clogs might not totally stop the flow of water, they do impede it. This causes strain on the plumbing system which could lead to more severe problems over time. As part of a routine plumbing maintenance program, these clogs will be identified and removed.
"Sewer lines are one of the most overlooked parts of the home plumbing system. However, if something goes wrong with the sewer system, you could end up in big trouble! Tree roots can slowly encroach on your sewer lines, or sludge can build up, or the line can sprout a leak; these are all issues you want to catch before they develop into disasters! For those reasons, it's a good idea to schedule routine plumbing maintenance. These issues won't escape the eye of an experienced plumber," said Josh Kelly of Parker & Sons.
