Some of plumbing’s biggest emergencies could have been prevented with simple plumbing maintenance. Most home owners are not even aware of preventative maintenance when it comes to plumbing. One of the biggest preventative maintenance a home owner should be doing is flushing their heater out every year. This prolongs your heater as well as keeps sediment and odor out of your lines. At Cleary Plumbing we believe in educating our customers about their plumbing system. A well informed home owner will have a better chance to prevent plumbing disasters. Cleary Plumbing offers several different maintenance programs, one being a simple annual inspection, where we go over your entire plumbing system to make sure everything is working properly. Below is a list of maintenance programs we offer and some things you should be checking or doing regularly.

Things Home Owners Should be Doing
Shutting off main shut off valve when leaving for substantial amount of time.
Exercising all valves occasionally to make sure they are working properly.
Exercising shut off valves for washing machine.
Checking water levels for water closets to make sure they are not running.
Checking water bill regularly to make sure there is not a large increase (increase in bill could be a leak).
Filling and draining tubs with hot water to make sure lines are draining properly.
Exercising tubs/shower valves, faucets and toilets that are either not being used or used infrequently. This keeps fixtures from seizing up or parts from drying out, causing them to leak or not work properly.
