PLUMBING PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE
What is Preventative Maintenance?
Preventative maintenance ensures all our customers assets are serviced and tested in accordance with legal requirement and manufacturer’s warranty conditions. This safeguards high demand plumbing assets, that service multiple residences, to guarantee compliance with manufacturer’s warranty conditions, increase longevity and reduce running cost.
Service agreements are tailored to include only what is on site. The assets mentioned below are by way of example and may not be on every site.
Preventative maintenance asset/plant package may include:
- Backflow prevention test and certification (legal requirement)
- Thermostatic mixing valve (TMV) testing (legal requirement)
- Eye wash bay/shower (legal requirement)
- Hot water/solar hot water unit service
- Pump maintenance and replacements (including but not limited to sewer, stormwater, rainwater and hot water circulation pumps)
- Jet cleaning of stormwater and sewer drains
- Fixture/asset quarterly health checks
- Asset life cycle reports

Protection (Includes Compliance)
Plumbing protection provides assurance that all plumbing related assets are covered for operational, running and property insurance requirements.
This ensures that all common area assets are inspected every 12 weeks. At the time of inspection customers will receive a comprehensive condition report on all common hydraulics.
The difference from the compliance package is that, following inspections, we will provide customers with a report identifying problems. We anticipate that these defect reports will reduce future asset breakdowns and increase life expectancy.
