You are ready to start your day with an invigorating shower only to realise that there is no hot water. Depending on the time of the year, this could range between being just a nuisance to a complete family crisis. Contacting Plumbers Express as soon as possible is the only solution, but is there is a way to avoid making emergency calls in future?
There are good reasons why asking your plumber to make an urgent visit is not ideal.
First, you will probably have to pay an extra fee for the service.
Second, you might need to make last-minute arrangements to ensure someone is in the house to let the plumber in.
Third, you might not be ready to face unexpected repair costs.
If you live in the Hunter Region, plumbing and the associated costs do not have to give you nightmares if you think ahead.
Your To-Do List
The majority of plumbing issues can be prevented. If you are constantly battling with blocked drains, have a talk with the members of the household. Make sure everyone knows only to flush organic matter and toilet paper. Anything else can potentially block the toilet.
Use a hair catcher for the shower and bath and keep a separate bin for food leftovers.
Inspect your hot water system and look for cracks or signs of water leaks. Once that is done, move on to the relief valve. You might want to keep your user’s manual nearby to ensure you follow all the steps correctly. The valve relieves excess pressure, so it is important not to overlook this task.
Keep in Mind
Something as small as a leaky tap can turn into a more serious issue. If you notice a problem, you need to act immediately. For some homeowners, plumbing is not always a priority and that can end up costing a lot of money in future repairs. Pay attention to your plumbing system and you will save yourself time and trouble.
