Plumbing systems are generally, sturdy, long-lasting and withstand considerable wear and tear for a long time. You hardly encounter any significant problems in the functioning of these features. However, they are not likely to remain the same forever and will need repairs, upgrades, and replacement as they age.

People want long-lasting plumbing systems. They also want to know what it takes to keep them working without problems and unnecessary expenditure.  We at SPS Plumbers Hills District believe that regular maintenance, timely repairs, and hiring experienced Sydney plumbers like us for various tasks are the best way to ensure the longevity of your plumbing systems. Here are some steps you can take to increase the lifespan of your plumbing fixtures

1. Preventive Maintenance

Just as you use preventive maintenance for electronic appliances, you need preventive maintenance for plumbing fixtures in your house. Not only will their efficiency improve but their lifespan too. There are various fixtures like sinks, toilets, showers, etc. that you need to look at to detect any problem in their smooth functioning.

If you tackle these issues in time, it saves you a lot of money, time, and stress, because you reduce any damage to the system. It is ideal if you inspect your plumbing system every month. If you are not inclined to manage these issues, the best way is to call an experienced licensed plumber to carry out preventive maintenance at regular intervals.

The team visits your property, conducts inspections, checks the visible and not so visible installations, identifies any potential problems, and informs you. Tackling these problems in time saves a lot of trouble later on and keeps your plumbing system healthy.

2. Understand How Fixtures Work

People rarely notice the existence of plumbing fixtures in their house but complain about their working when the drains clog and water floods in the sinks.  If they try to understand why the drains are blocked, they would stop throwing a lot of things like food and vegetable residues, used cooling oil, and other greasy substances down the drain.

People must know how the drainage system works and which dos and don’ts to follow to ensure the system works efficiently without any problems for a long time.  Simple measures like installing a stainer for the shower, avoiding any foodstuff getting into the drain and pouring hot water into the drain regularly help to keep the system function smoothly.

3. Replace Old or Worn Out Fixtures

A lot of plumbing problems arise due to worn out and old sections of your plumbing system. When that old component works inefficiently, it strains the rest of the system. It is essential to replace the old and worn out parts as soon as you notice any issues in them. Such replacements prevent huge expenses on repairs afterward.

When it comes to plumbing emergencies, a burst pipe is right at the top of the list in terms of severity. Depending on where the pipe is located, the water flowing from it can cause significant damage to various features on your property. We at SPS Northern Suburbs are a company that caters to residential and commercial clients. Over the years, we have handled a significant number of regular and emergency plumbing jobs.

We will make sure our emergency plumber in Northern Suburbs is at your location within the shortest possible time to deal with your burst pipe problem.

Signs That You Have A Burst Pipe

Water can cause a lot of destruction when there is any flooding on your property. This makes it very important to address burst pipe issues without delay. The longer you allow the water to accumulate in various areas, the higher the chances of damage to multiple features. Since many pipes are behind walls or under the ground, a burst pipe may not always be evident right away. But certain signs can indicate you have a burst pipe, such as:

  • Water flooding in spaces near plumbing installations
  • Dripping sounds from behind walls or some other features
  • Dampness in the floor surfaces
  • Water pooling in various areas of your landscape
  • Visible damage to your drywalls or false ceilings

If you notice any of these signs, you must call experienced plumbers in Northern Suburbs without delay. The experts will use specialized leak detection equipment to determine where the origin of the leak is and will fix the problem quickly and efficiently. Sometimes, burst pipe pipes occur because the installations are old and corroded. Older structures may have ancient iron pipes that have become corroded over time. These pipes can spring leaks and ultimately burst if they aren’t replaced on time. 

When the emergency plumbers visit your property, they will first determine where the leak is. They will then shut off the water mains before addressing the issue. Once they have isolated the leak, they will provide you a detailed quote for replacing the damaged pipe with a new resilient one made of PVC.

For many people, DIY is a favourite method to undertake various home improvement projects. It is easy and free to access this information online. Millions of online videos provide information on DIY repairs. There are tutorials, short cuts, and tips on any subject under the sun. That encourages DIY enthusiasts to try even plumbing jobs that require specialised skills. However, this is not always a wise decision. Here are some reasons why a DIY plumbing project may prove to be a disaster.

Common DIY Plumbing Disasters

We at SPS  often observe that when people try to fix their plumbing problems on their own, it end in sure disaster. It makes the resultant repair job not only difficult to tackle but expensive too. Here is a list of some common problems that arise out of DIY plumbing jobs:

  • In a DIY effort, you may disconnect the pipes, use pipes and joints of different materials, incorrect sizes, or use wrong adhesives. This can result in leakages and corrosion of pipes.
  • Most houses have concealed plumbing installations that are hidden in the wall or under the ground. Rip opening a wall incorrectly without knowing the correct location of the problem damages the piping system, and you will end up damaging the structure of the house.
  • Due to the lack of precise knowledge about the water lines, you may mix up the water lines and cause problems.
  • The first step in any leakage repair must be to shut off the main water supply; this is often forgotten. This can cause flooding in your house, and installations suffer damage.
  • Installing a faucet backward is also a common mistake.

How Professional Plumbing Work Differs from  DIY

Some plumbing tasks may look simple, but they are not. You need knowledge, training, and practice to get it right. Online tutorials can give you an understanding of what plumbing involves but not the actual skills to do it. At SPS, we notice that people’s DIY repair or installation projects cause more damage, which is avoidable. Look at these differences between DIY and hiring the services of a licensed plumber in Northern Suburbs:

  • Training – You cannot discount the importance of training for plumbing jobs. In fact, amateur repairs can damage plumbing systems that are working well. Professional plumbers have the requisite training to repair plumbing systems efficiently.
  • Convenience – When you hire professional services, you save time and money on tools that you do not need all the time. It is always convenient to call a trained plumber to do the job.
  • Licensed and insured – DIY mistakes can make a hole in your pocket if they go wrong. You can avoid this when you hire the licensed and insured plumbers as they have the insurance coverage to bear a hit.
