Essentially preventive plumbing is regular maintenance of your plumbing assets and fixtures at your property (residential & commercial). Just like with so many aspects of our lives like our finances, health, and relationships maintenance is crucial. Regular inspections (6 to 12 months) by a fully qualified and licensed plumber can help you:
- Identify problems before they become expensive emergencies
- Identify and remove safety hazards at your property
- Ensure you meet any legislated testing and maintenance requirements (i.e. backflow device)
Your Insurance and Preventive Plumbing
Although every insurance policy is different, when you have preventative plumbing done at your property (residential & commercial), you have a higher chance of getting adequate insurance cover. This means you can be covered when a plumbing emergency occurs like a burst pipe or gas leak. You must check your insurance policy though to see what exactly you are covered for when it comes to your plumbing. Never assume you will be covered in a plumbing emergency if you haven’t first taken preventive measures.
