Plumbing Tune-Ups

You’ve probably heard of a furnace and air conditioner tune-up, but many Anthony Plumbing, Heating and Cooling customers are not familiar with a plumbing system tune-up. Just what is it? What does it include? What can you expect?

 

You Don’t Have to Live with Bad Plumbing

A plumbing tune-up is a great way to keep the plumbing system in your entire house running smoothly. Most homeowners don’t think about their plumbing until something breaks, but I’ll bet you can think of a sink that drains too slowly or a shower head that has a partially clogged sprayer or a faucet that drips in your home. It’s very rare that a home’s entire plumbing system is in perfect working order. That’s why homeowners really like our Anthony plumbing tune-ups.

What to Expect with a Plumbing Tune-Up

When Anthony comes to your home to perform a plumbing tune-up, we check the entire house from outdoor water faucets to washing machine hoses. We make sure everything is working properly and let you know if any items require repairs to avoid possible future disaster. We tell you upfront if we need to repair or replace anything so there’s never a sticker shock. Here are a few of the services we perform:

  • Sinks, Faucets, and Drains – we make sure all faucets are running freely and the water is draining rapidly.
  • Toilet, Tubs, and Showers – we make sure all toilets are flushing and filling properly and shower heads are spraying freely with no leaks.
  • Washer, Dishwasher, Sump Pump – we check for small leaks that are hard to see behind appliances and under cabinets. We perform a sump pump test to make sure it is operating properly.
  • 10-Point Water Heater Tune-Up – over time, your water heater builds up with sediment that insulates the heating element making it less effective. With a water heater tune-up, we will drain your water heater and remove any sediment and check to make sure it is working properly, there are no leaks and the temperature is set where no one will accidentally scald themselves, especially small children.

Benefits of a Plumbing System Tune-Up

Plumbing tune-ups lower future repair costs – and can prevent major damage by catching small problems before they become costly surprises. They also find leaks and keep you from wasting water and paying a higher usage bill. You may notice an increase in water pressure once your pipes are all working the way they were designed to work. From sump pumps to garbage disposers, every home could benefit from a plumbing system tune-up. Give Anthony PHC a call and we’ll come to your home for a plumbing inspection.
