How It Works

Home plumbing uses a series of pipes to carry water to sinks, toilets, showers, refrigerators and dishwashers. It uses a drain, waste and vent system to transport any waste water to a septic system or sewer system. There are many variations of this basic plumbing system, each with their own maintenance needs and schedules. Our tips will cover all of these variations.

What Can Go Wrong?

Plumbing Supply Piping: Problems with supply piping may lead to serious damage. Water damage from toilets typically costs between $2,000 and $10,000 per incident. 78 percent of those incidents were reportedly caused by faulty supply lines, toilet flanges, fill valve assemblies, toilet back-ups and overflows.

Drain, Waste and Vent Piping: Drain piping can become clogged with wasted debris. A clogged drain pipe may overflow and damage the surrounding parts of your home or become a health hazard. Exterior piping can also become damaged and any leaks may cause damage to landscaping.

Environmental Impact

Consider installing low-flow toilets and shower heads, even if you don’t live in an area with limited water. Doing so can drastically help the environment and reduce your utility bills.
