Preventative Maintenance

Like any mechanical system, having your plumbing and water-based appliances routinely inspected and/or serviced will pay dividends in the long run. Routine inspections can help identify problems early and avoid costly repairs.

Water Heaters

A water heater is something that is easy to ignore—until suddenly you’re taking cold showers. That's why it's important to schedule regular water heater maintenance check-ups. It will work better, use less energy and last longer.

To keep your traditional storage hot water heater in tiptop operating condition, our home plumbing experts will check the pressure relief valve, drain your tank to remove any sediment (if recommended), inspect the tank and connections for rust, wear or corrosion, replace worn anode rods, and more.

A tankless water heater requires two types of regular maintenance: checking the in-line screen filter for debris and flushing the unit to keep it free of scale and lime.

Garbage Disposals

A sink garbage disposal unit makes it fast and easy to clean up your food waste. Keep it in great working order by cleaning your garbage disposal on a regular basis.

Get rid of built-up sludge and debris by filling it with ice cubes and a cup of rock salt, then running it for about five seconds. If your garbage disposal smells bad, deodorize it by grinding a lemon while you run warm water down.

Drains

When you think about what goes down our drains every day—from grease to hair to soap and food waste—it’s not surprising that sooner or later our sinks become sluggish and clogged. That’s why it’s important to take action to keep your drains in good working order.

DrainRight® Drain Maintainer, exclusively offered by the ARS®/Rescue Rooter® Network, actually maintains your pipes by preventing clogs before they form, helping to prevent drain problems and keep your plumbing flowing free.

Plumbing Tips

In today’s world, it’s important to conserve water and energy. These simple tips can help you reduce your energy use, save money on your water and energy bills, and lower your impact on the environment.

  • Switch to aerator faucets and low-flow showerheads, which can save hundreds of gallons of water a week.
  • Run your dishwasher with full loads to conserve water. Running it in the evening saves energy, too.
  • Repair dripping faucets and toilet leaks. A faucet dripping at a rate of one drop per second wastes almost 2,800 gallons of water a year. A leaky toilet can waste over 73,000 gallons of water a year.
  • Install a tankless water heater. It reduces heating costs and water waste since you won’t have to let the water run while it heats up.
  • Wash full loads of laundry or use the appropriate load size selection on the washing machine to help conserve water.
  • To prevent damage from frozen pipes, insulate any pipes in unheated or exterior walls. Plus, let water drip or trickle from faucets during extremely cold weather and open cabinet doors to help circulate warm air.
