As a homeowner, there are steps that you can take to help maintain the water line that leads into and away from your home. Small steps can add up quickly to have a big impact – either positive or negative – on the plumbing lines in and around your home.
You can keep reading to learn more about some of the positive changes you can make to help care for your main water line and lessen the chances of needing repairs. Of course, when you do need to schedule service for main waterline repair in Dover, PA, you can give our team a call to schedule an appointment. Even if you don’t know what’s wrong with your main waterline, our team can troubleshoot and figure it out so that we can fix the problem.
One of the best things you can do for your main water line is to schedule annual maintenance for your home’s plumbing. Annual maintenance appointments are an opportunity for our team to assess plumbing lines and fixtures both inside and outside your home. We can often identify the early signs of problems and circumvent them so that you don’t experience any interruptions to your water service.
Another step that you can take is to install mesh drain covers over all of the drains in your home. This includes sinks and showers. Even though your drains do have covers, the holes are usually large enough that significant amounts of debris can slip through.
A mesh drain cover has a much finer design, so it traps more debris. You can remove these mesh drain covers after usage and wipe them down to throw away particles that were captured. Then put the mesh drain cover back in place for the next usage.
Stay Ahead of Problems
It’s also important for you to pay attention to how your plumbing is operating. If you notice changes in water pressure or water that is moving slowly through drains, that’s a red flag of something being wrong. Sometimes these problems are isolated to a single sink, shower, or even room. But other times these problems can impact plumbing across your entire home.
Plumbing issues should always be addressed quickly, but widespread issues are even more serious. Slow drains and other issues that are present in every sink or drain indicate that something serious is wrong and you need to schedule service to fix the problem before it worsens.
