Importance of Drain and Sewer Maintenance in Winter Springs

Monday, October 29th, 2012

In order to keep your drains from clogging, it’s probably a good idea to have a professional Winter Springs plumber perform regular maintenance on your drain and sewer system.  Most people don’t ever think about maintenance for their drainage and sewer system. But it definitely has some potential benefits that are worth talking about. Below, we explore some of the possible benefits of having regular maintenance on your plumbing system.

Reduced Repair Costs

Preventative maintenance is normally less expensive than big repair projects. By keeping an eye on your plumbing, your drains and sewer system your plumber can detect small issues before they turn into big, expensive repairs.

Protect Your Property

Imagine if you had a leaking pipe but because your plumber comes to your home twice a year, he was able to find it early. He could perform a quick repair on it before it burst and flooded your yard or your basement. A broken pipe like that could cost you a lot of money and cause extreme damage to your home.

Better Performance

When you have regular maintenance done on your drain and sewer system, you won’t get any surprise clogs in your drains or sewer system. A trained plumber can detect which drains in your house are getting clogged and they can clear the blockage before your shower won’t drain and your toilet overflows into your bathroom.

Peace of Mind

If you have an older home with copper or galvanized steel pipes, there is a chance that they could be rusting or deteriorating. While copper and steel are both strong metals that are designed to carry water, eventually they can corrode. When this happens, you’ll have a big problem on your hands and might need to repipe your entire property. With regular maintenance, you’ll know exactly how your drains and sewer system are working. Your Winter Springs plumber will be able to let you know when you should re-pipe before your pipes suddenly burst.

Plumbing Question: Why Should You Get a Whole House Water Filter?

Monday, October 15th, 2012

Most of us have heard about whole house water filters by now. But what exactly are the actual benefits to whole house water filtration systems? We’ve put together a quick list of some of the benefits to having a water filtration system installed in your Orlando home. This should provide some great information for you as you begin to make this decision.

How Does a Whole House Water Filter Work?

A whole house filter differs from other water filters in that it actually filters all the water entering the house—not just the water that you drink. This means that the water you shower in, the water you wash your dishes with and the water you drink are all filtered. A whole house water filter is installed by a professional Orlando plumber in line with the main water supply line coming from either your well or from the city. Water passes through the filter and goes into your home.

Removes Unwanted Minerals from Water

Mineral build up can be the cause of expensive repairs in home appliances like water heaters, washing machines and dishwashers. A whole house water filter can remove or greatly reduce the amount of minerals that are in your water. This keeps them from building up inside your appliances and causing blockages and clogs.

If you have any questions about whether or not a whole house water filter is right for your Orlando  home, then call Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI). Our plumbers can answer any questions you might have.
