Do you know how hard your water is? The harder the water the more minerals it contains. These minerals cause premature aging by causing pits and rust. Which weakens your pipes and causes water leaks. 

An inspection by a professional can determine if you have any current leaks, what type of pipes you have and how you can prevent leaks in the future. 

Don’t use Commercial Drain Cleaners

What is worse than a clogged drain? An undetected leak, constantly dripping water, causing more and more damage every day! Commercial drain cleaners are very damaging to pipes. Not only do they eat away at whatever is clogging your drain, but also the pipes. Eating away from the inside out. 

High Water Pressure 

Though high water pressure is great for showers, they aren’t so great for plumbing pipes. In fact, the high speed wears away at the inside of the pipe, weaken them and causing premature aging. The average psi for a home's water pressure should be between 30 and 50.
