At the same time, you may end up feeling like all you ever get to do is diagnose problems and try to make repairs. The squeakiest wheel is typically the one that gets the grease, so some systems within your home probably get more attention than others. 

With so much of your plumbing located under your house and in your basement and crawlspace, those systems are often the most neglected. From your water supply pipes to your water heater to your drains and sewer mainline, there are many parts of your plumbing that require routine maintenance. 

When these things malfunction, it can lead to costly repairs, especially if problems are allowed to persist. 

With so much to do in the Blue Ridge Mountains, maintaining your plumbing systems may not be on the top of your list of weekend activities. However, it is vital for homeowners to keep up with their plumbing maintenance. Here is what you need to know about plumbing maintenance and repair in Asheville, NC. 

Plumbing Repair and Maintenance in Asheville, NC

Just like other systems in your home, plumbing must be properly and regularly maintained. Some of the plumbing systems that require maintenance include:

  • Water heaters
  • Plumbing appliances
  • Pipes and faucets
  • Toilets and showers
  • Sump pumps, sewer lines, and drains

Without proper maintenance, you could experience catastrophic failure in your plumbing systems. What begins as a small leak can become a costly disaster:

  • Sediment build-up will reduce your water heater's performance over time, but eventually, it can cause your water heater to fail altogether.
  • A small leak in a toilet or faucet can lead to thousands of gallons of wasted water over the course of months to a year. 
  • Leaking water can lead to water damage and organic growth. 
  • Some plumbing systems can fail altogether, leading to massive flooding in your home.
