Plumbing is often compared to the circulatory system in the body. It carries water, the very lifeblood of your daily domestic activities, in and out of your home. It's also the distribution system for natural gas and your drainage system when you have flooding or broken pipes.
All of these functions are essential to everyday living and each of the plumbing elements responsible for them needs regular maintenance and sometimes repairs if it's going to continue to function at the proper performance level.
One of the most overlooked of these elements is your sump pump. Most homes have these installed as an emergency deterrent against flooding, but not all of them use these pumps regularly. Some homes only require their use every few years or so, leading to their neglect. A regular plumbing inspection might not detect problems with the pump when a quick start-up is done. Its best, if you have a sump pump, to test run them for a period of time each season.
Your water heater is another element of your plumbing system that is often overlooked in the general maintenance department. The salesperson you bought that old Kenmore or Westinghouse water heater from told you it would “last forever”. What they didn't mention was that its efficiency level would decline over time. If you haven't upgraded your water heater in a few years, look into new options that are available today. The old model might have lasted a while, but it's costing you more than you should have to pay for fuel and utility bills.
