Benefits of a Plumbing Service
We at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing believe the best thing you can do is to have a regular plumbing service carried out by one of our highly trained plumbers. The plumber will confirm that everything is okay with your plumbing system.
After the routine plumbing service, all issues will be documented, and you will be presented with an effective diagnosis of the problem and how it can best be resolved. The cost of plumbing service is a lot cheaper compared to the cost of an emergency callout. You will have greater peace of mind, knowing that a plumbing disaster is less likely to happen.
Water Pressure Will Improve
After the plumbing service from Benjamin Franklin Plumbing of Myrtle Beach, SC you can look forward to an improvement in your water pressure. It can be very frustrating when low water pressure reduces the amount of hot water flowing from your showerhead or you have to wait for your washing machine to fill.
The most common cause of reduced water pressure is that there is a leak somewhere on your property. A leak is not always easy to detect and often the first sign of a problem is a sudden increase in your water bill. Most water pipes are located behind walls, under floors, and even under or in the foundation of your home. Only a trained plumber will be able to quickly locate the source of the leak.
Low water pressure can be caused by limescale forming in your pipes. If you live in an area of hard water this can be a serious problem. If you notice limescale forming on your kettles heating element or around your taps or showerhead, you may have scale forming inside your pipes.
As the scale grows it will slowly restrict the flow of water through your plumbing system. You may want to consider having a water softener installed, but if the scale buildup is severe the only solution may be to replace your pipework.
Unwanted buildup in pipes can also occur if you have older, galvanized steel water pipes. These pipes will corrode but usually from the inside so you will usually not see any visible signs of corrosion. The rust will eventually block your pipes.
The best solution will usually be to replace this type of pipe. Not only will your water pressure improve but it will taste better too! There could also be a problem with your pressure regulator or pressure-reducing valve. These are designed to reduce high water pressure from entering your home and from damaging your pipes from excess pressure.
You Will Lessen the Chance of Needing an Emergency Plumber
Any plumbing service will pick up on any problems and alert you to them. They can then be acted on before they become serious and need an emergency callout.
Cleaner Water to Drink
As we have mentioned earlier older pipework can corrode making its way into your drinking water. Some homes still have lead pipework, and we strongly recommend that you have this replaced. Having lead entering your body is not healthy or safe and it will begin to get hazardous to your health.
Your Plumbing System Will Last Longer
Regular plumbing service will not only check your pipework, but also your toilets, garbage disposals, shower trays, and many others. Your plumbing system will last years longer because of the service. It is a bit like having your cars’ oil changed every 5000 miles, it makes it last longer.
You Will Save Money in the Long Term
A plumbing service can detect small leaks for you. Did you know that a tap that drips one drip a minute will waste about 35 gallons of water each year?! Imagine all your taps doing that! A constantly running toilet is going to waste more water than that and the same is true for any small leak.
Over the years this will amount to a lot of wasted dollars, literally going down the drain. Of course, it will cost you money to have repairs done, but you will recover this quickly in reduced water bills. A bonus is that the sooner a leak is fixed, the less water damage will be caused to your property.
You Will be Happier (Hopefully)
They say that money cannot buy happiness, but in this case, we think it can. You will gain peace of mind in the awareness that you are less likely to need an emergency callout. At least that dripping will be fixed and will not keep you awake at night and save you money.
Your Home’s Value Will Be Improved
If you decide to sell your home, an inspection will reveal that you have maintained your plumbing system. A well-kept home is going to fetch a higher value than a poorly kept one. In fact, realtors say bathrooms are one of the main selling points for any property.
Benjamin Franklin Plumbing of Myrtle Beach believes that having a regular plumbing service is not only a good idea but that it represents good value. We understand that times are hard for many, and it may be tempting to have a go at DIY repairs yourself.
