Plumbing System Maintenance in Edmonton, AB

Have you scheduled an appointment for plumbing system maintenance? Edmonton homeowners don't often think about their pipes and fixtures, until they stop working.

Is Plumbing System Maintenance Important?

Yes! Even if you just take advantage of Edmonton drain cleaning services, you should always schedule a regular appointment for routine plumbing system maintenance. Edmonton plumbing problems are more easily avoided when you get regular check-ups from an expert plumber.

Your chances of seeing sewage backups, overflowing toilets, and other frustrating problems increases each year that you don't schedule an appointment for plumbing system maintenance. All Edmonton homes are susceptible to the problems caused by poorly maintained pipes. Regular cleaning and repair services exist to decrease the risk of those problems appearing—and increase your peace of mind.

What Happens If You Don't Get Plumbing System Maintenance in Edmonton?


Over time, all pipes fill with small traces of debris and residue from the things that you flush away. That system buildup gets faster and becomes more severe when you frequently flush harmful materials, but even if you avoid flushing grease, fats, and other harmful substances, that buildup will still continue.

Even hair, soap scum, and the minerals in Edmonton's water will slowly contribute to the creeping buildup of debris inside your sewage lines. Without regular cleaning, your lines will eventually become completely blocked. In the best case scenario, those blockages will result in slow drains and sink backups. In the worst case, you'll have to deal with overflowing toilets and sewage backups.

Fixture Failures:

Clogs aren't the only reason that you should schedule an appointment for plumbing system maintenance. Edmonton homes are also likely to develop fixture failures over time. It's normal for anything that gets used frequently to wear down gradually—and most plumbing fixtures get used multiple times each day.

Shower heads, faucets, water heaters, and other key fixtures all wear down with daily use. Even the outdoor valve used for your garden hose will wear down eventually—as will the pipes that supply your home with drinking water and remove waste. Preventing problems like a dripping faucet or pipe leak is a key benefit of getting plumbing system maintenance. Edmonton homeowners that schedule routine maintenance are more protected against all kinds of future problems.

What Are The Signs That You Need Plumbing System Maintenance?

It's a good idea to call a local plumber like Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Edmonton as soon as you notice anything unusual happening with your pipes or fixtures. The worst thing that you could do is ignore those situations. Any unusual change in the way your system's sinks, taps, or other fixtures work could be a sign of something more serious deeper within your pipes.

There are also some common signs that your home is overdue for plumbing system maintenance. Edmonton homeowners should schedule an appointment as soon as they see any of the following signs. At the very least you'll be solving a new problem, but you could also be preventing a major emergency at the same time.

Plumbing System Maintenance—Edmonton Warning Signs:

  • Slow drains that keep getting worse

  • Sinks that are constantly backing-up

  • Rotten odours coming from your drains

  • Musty odours near exposed pipes or fixtures

  • Moisture stains and rust

  • Strange toilet sounds, frequent backups, and inconsistent water levels in your toilet bowl

  • Constantly running toilets

  • Reduced water pressure

  • Insufficient amounts of hot water

  • Drips and slow leaks

  • Unusually high water bills

What Are The Benefits of Getting Routine Plumbing System Maintenance?

Peace of Mind:

It's true that you can't put a price on peace of mind. There are a lot of things that could go wrong with pipes and fixtures. The best way to avoid all of those problems is with an appointment for plumbing system maintenance. Edmonton's pipes and fixtures are vulnerable to all the problems that could affect a plumbing system. The older your system is—and the longer it's been since your last appointment—the more likely those problems become.

With an appointment for plumbing system maintenance, Edmonton homeowners can often prevent:

  • Frozen pipes

  • Drain clogs

  • Broken toilets

  • Dripping faucets

  • Burst pipes

  • Sewage backups

  • Water heater failure

  • Leaking hot water tanks

  • Collapsed mains

  • And more!

Longer Lasting Fixtures:

Just like with any other complex mechanisms, routine repairs and inspections will ensure that your home's pipes and fixtures last longer, which means you'll be less likely to need an appointment for repairs—or emergency services.

All pipes and fixtures have a limited lifespan. The copper pipes that are often used for water supply lines in Edmonton have a lifespan of roughly 70-80 years. The average conventional water heater lasts 8-12 years in Edmonton. In both cases, plumbing system maintenance will help guarantee that you get all those estimated years out of your fixtures, so that you don't have to worry about costly repairs or early replacement.

Lower Bills:

As pipes and fixtures wear down, they become both more inefficient and more likely to develop leaks. A struggling hot water heater that needs maintenance could indirectly increase your energy costs. A constantly running toilet, dripping faucet, or slow leak will definitely increase your water bills.

The cost of letting a little leak go unnoticed or ignoring a dripping faucet will eventually exceed the cost of fixing it early. Even a pinhole leak barely bigger than a grain of rice could result in as much as 3,000 litres of wasted water—or more—each month. On monthly water bills, that usually averages out to an extra $400—or more.

Those little leaks will also cause other issues, like damaged walls or ceilings, that will create even more costs. Preventing those complications and solving the problems that lead to them is easily done with professional plumbing system maintenance. Edmonton homeowners can rely on Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Edmonton to provide all the solutions they need.

Frequently Asked Questions About Plumbing System Maintenance in Edmonton:

“How Often Should You Get Plumbing System Maintenance in Edmonton?”

An annual appointment is the best baseline for most homes in Edmonton. Your home may need more frequent maintenance or repairs depending on the age of your pipes and fixtures—as well as how you use them. If you are scheduling frequent appointments for drain cleaning or minor repairs, you might want to consider replacing those faulty fixtures instead.

“What Does Plumbing System Maintenance Include?”

The most basic services will include an inspection for all the important fixtures and appliances in your system. Your specific system's maintenance needs may also include repairs and drain cleaning. Most plumbers provide a list of suggestions after their inspection is complete, which will include all their recommended additional maintenance solutions for your system.

Maintenance inspections typically include:

  • Faucets

  • Toilets

  • Drains

  • Water heaters

  • Shut-off valves

  • Sump pumps

  • Backflow prevention devices

  • Water supply lines
