Warmer weather and longer days are on the way! While spring cleaning and gardening are planned for this time of year, a check-up of your household plumbing should also be included. Some people wait for an issue to arise before attending to their plumbing, but regular maintenance could save you time and money down the track.
Check for Leaking Pipes
From freezing nights to unusually warm days, Sydney’s weather this winter has been erratic. Extreme temperature changes can be detrimental to your pipes as the expansion and contraction in response to the temperature causes cracks and leaks and can even lead to burst pipes. It’s important to do a walk around your house and check all the pipes under sinks, in the laundry, and even outside. Leaks gone unnoticed can increase your water bill and can even cause damage to your home. Call us if you suspect a water leak.
Check Your Water Heater
Your water heater has been working overtime this winter, so make sure to check on your hard-working unit. A hot water system should be serviced every 2-3 years to make sure it’s functioning correctly and to maintain its lifespan. If you notice any changes in the time it takes to heat up or in the overall temperature of the water, you may need a service. Make sure to call Network Plumbing on 9958 5858 to get a hot water specialist out for a service.
Check Your Roof & Gutters
Although the trees lost their leaves in autumn, the wild winter winds have been blocking drains all around Sydney. With wetter weather on the way, it’s important to make sure your roof and gutters are clear of debris to allow for proper drainage. Whether you do it yourself or have one of our plumbers clear them for you, make sure to regularly clean your roof and gutters.
