Preventative Plumbing Maintenance in Gilbert and the Greater Phoenix Area

3 Reasons You Need to Maintain Your Pipes

Arizona’s hard water can take a toll on your pipes and, over time, cause them to break down, leak or burst. Because plumbing is a system of interconnected pipes, when you have a problem in one area of your property, that can affect plumbing performance in other areas.

We recommend annual plumbing maintenance for three reasons:

  1. Basic maintenance can extend the life of your water heater, faucets and plumbing fixtures.
  2. Routine maintenance can identify potential problems and prevent expensive repairs.
  3. We use preventive measures so you have fewer toilet, sink and other plumbing clogs.

DIY Plumbing Maintenance Tips

You can do a few simple tasks around your home and businesses to prevent big plumbing problems.

  • Use Bio-Clean to prevent clogged drains. You’ll find this enzyme a your local hardware store. It comes in a powder form that, when mixed with water, breeds and eats clog-causing bacteria. Once the bacteria is gone, it washes down your drain and is gone! We recommend that you treat drains that frequently clog with Bio-Clean every few months. To use: mix a scoop with a cup of warm water and pour it down the drain. Do not use the sink for 8 hours. Note: If your drain is already clogged, Bio-Clean won’t work. Call a plumber.
  • Run water through your garbage disposal for a few seconds every day to keep all the parts lubricated and free of debris.
  • Check under sinks regularly for leaks. When you open under-sink cabinets, make it a habit to check for signs of water damage.
  • Don’t flush anything other than toilet paper and waste down your toilet.
  • Don’t dump grease, oil or fats down the kitchen drain. Pour them into containers and throw them out with your trash.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals in drains. They cause corrosion, and they are dangerous to your skin and eyes.
  • Learn where the emergency shut-off and main water valves are to your house or business. All shut-off valves should be exercised annually (turned on and off) to assure proper operation. If you have a water line break, you’ll want to shut off the water immediately before you call Isley’s.
