Everyone discusses the importance of having heating and air conditioning systems receive regular/annual maintenance. But, were you aware that is equally as important to have your home's plumbing system receive an annual checkup?

Having your plumbing system receive annual, or even semi-annual maintenance, will help to ensure that you will find yourself without any clogged drains, leaky faucets, as well as frozen or burst pipes. In fact, there is a variety of reasons that a homeowner would want to have their plumbing system receive an annual checkup. Furthermore, if homeowners have the chance to become a member of a plumbing maintenance program, we strongly encourage you to do so. We aren't saying this because our company offers them—we are saying this because there are so many benefits of becoming a member.

Being a member of a maintenance program will allow plumbers to prevent small issues from turning into big problems.

If you were to ask what one of the top benefits were, we would suggest that it would be because the plumber would be able to catch, and thus remedy, any small issues before they become huge and costly problems.

Being a member means you get the VIP treatment.

Not only will you receive guaranteed annual or semi-annual maintenance, but when there is an issue, you take priority over other customers. In other words, you get to the front of the line when you call the company to remedy an emergency, or get first dibs on the days left to schedule service.

Most companies offer discounts to members.

Not only will you receive guaranteed preventative maintenance and get the VIP treatment, but you will also get some great discounts off of any plumbing repairs or replacement you need to make throughout the year.

Aside from the benefits that we mentioned above, there are still many others. Although, in the end, if you want to lengthen the lifespan of your plumbing system, consider a maintenance program!
