Preventing Leaks Before They Happen: Basic Plumbing Maintenance Tips

Professional water damage mitigation specialists like Rytech frequently encounter the results of putting off preventive household and plumbing maintenance. Very few plumbing issues get better when neglected; most become more complicated and potentially damaging as time passes. By the time on-going leaks can no longer be ignored, the services of water mitigation specialists are frequently required to deal with recovery and restoration as well as long-term after-effects such as mold growth.

Dealing with nagging leaks other plumbing problems now prevents future consequences like severe household water damage. Here are some areas to focus on:

Check beneath sinks, behind toilets and anywhere else water supply lines are visible for evidence of water leaks. Because leaks may occur intermittently, don’t ignore any signs of leakage—past or present. Take action to track down the cause.

Annually, drain your water heater to flush out sediment. A hardening layer of mineral sediment in the bottom of the tank not only substantially raises water heating costs, it accelerates tank corrosion that may trigger leakage and a complete tank rupture.

Don’t ignore unexplained increases in your monthly water bill. Severe leakage from water supply lines may persist undiscovered for a long time if the pipe is broken underground or in the slab foundation of the house. If your costs keep going up, ask a qualified professional plumber to find out why.

Does your washing machine use rubber hot and cold water supply hoses? Replace them with braided stainless steel lines. Rubber hoses have a short expected service life and may rupture without warning, flooding your house with hundreds of gallons of water.

Excellent review by Nate K., via Customer Lobby

A++ Service! Perhaps the best contractor I have ever encountered!
I couldn't be happier about the services I received following a burst pipe in my house. Rytech's team was extremely professional and went out of their way to educated me on how materials react to water, restoration, and even the claims process that I would be going through with the Insurance Company. They were even able to quickly coordinate additional contractors for plumbing and counter tops. Their team seemed to understand that stress that occurs with unforeseen house damage, and their demeanor was very calming and reassuring! I will absolutely recommend Rytech to anyone dealing with water damage.

How to Prevent Broken Water Pipes

Take a few steps now to prevent broken water pipes and reduce your chances of expensive repairs for water damage restoration and mold contamination later. The most common cause of catastrophic water inundation is not outdoor flooding, it actually originates indoors with your own plumbing. A ruptured residential water supply line can release up to 50 gallons per minute. How many minutes will elapse before you are able to turn off the water to your entire house at the shutoff valve? The best case scenario, only a few minutes. Suppose you’re out of town for a few days when it happens?

Compared to all other alternatives, anything you can do now to prevent broken water pipes is clearly the preferred course.

Get Your Water Pressure Checked by a Plumber

Water pressure in the main municipal water line is too high for residential plumbing. It’s typically reduced by a regulator valve located at your water meter or where the water supply line enters your house. If the regulator’s defective or improperly adjusted, indoor water pressure may be excessive and cause a ruptured pipe. In most cases, household water pressure should not exceed 65 p.s.i.

Don’t Put up with Leaks

Pinhole leaks, dribbles or seepage from indoor water supply lines, no matter how minor, should never be dismissed as “normal.” In most cases, the leakage you can actually see is only the external indication of major corrosion inside that may cause a total rupture — or a weakening joint that may blow out any day now. Visually inspect all the water supply lines for any signs of dripping or seepage, past or present, and call a plumber now if you see any.

Replace Galvanized Pipes

If your home was built in the 1970s or earlier, it may have galvanized steel piping. Over the years, this material internally rusts and corrodes, becoming prone to sudden failure. Galvanized pipe that is 40 years old is at the end of its expected life and should be replaced now with copper or PEX as a preventive measure to avoid flooding.
