Drain Maintenance

Is Preventive Drain Maintenance Worth the Investment?

What is something you use on a daily basis but don’t often consider cleaning or even thinking of it when it works just fine? We’ll go first….Drains! Because you use your drains frequently throughout the day, it’s simple to overlook routine maintenance and forget about them until something goes wrong, like a clog, slow drains, blockage, or backing up water. ABA Plumbing & Gas is your local Adelaide drains plumber and we strongly believe that all drains, whether for stormwater or sewage systems, should be kept clear and in good condition. Regular cleaning and inspections by a professional drain plumbing team can easily avert any big or small drainage problems. 

We get callouts for drain issues across the Adelaide area and have compiled this guide to help you keep your drains in top condition. Let’s go over the benefits of preventive drain maintenance. Read on to find some excellent advice on how to maintain the health of your drains below.

The Benefits of Regular Drain Cleaning

Maintaining clean drains might save you a great deal of hassle and money in the future. We have compiled a list of the following significant advantages of routine drain maintenance:

Reduce Your Risk of Blockages: Frequent cleaning aids in preventing obstructions and minor blockages that may result in water backups and harm to your property.

Eliminate Unpleasant Odours: Blocked drains can emit foul odours, making your living or working environment uncomfortable and unhygienic. Regular maintenance keeps your drains odour-free.

Reduce Emergency Plumbing Callouts: Preventive maintenance can cut down on plumbing emergency callouts by preventing unplanned plumbing crises and sparing you from inconvenience and expensive emergency repairs.

Extend the Lifespan of Your Drains and Pipes: Your plumbing system will last longer and function better with regular cleaning as it will not suffer as much wear and tear. Additionally, regular drain clearing helps detect issues with your pipes and drains before they escalate into bigger problems like high water pressure, corrosion, cracks, tree roots, or any other drain conditions.

Maintain Maximum Drainage Flow Performance: Clean drains ensure optimal water flow, preventing slow drains and standing water issues.

How You Can Prevent Drain Clogs

Here are some practical tips to help you maintain your drains and prevent clogs:

Watch What You Flush; Make sure you wash down your sinks and basins with only non-toxic liquids. We have mentioned a few times before in our previous blogs that one should only dispose of the “3 Ps”—pee, poo, and toilet paper down the flush. To collect garbage, place basket waste grates in your sinks, and supply sanitary bins for bathrooms.

Steer Clear Of Chemicals: Despite their apparent benefits, drain cleaning chemicals may do more harm than good and must be avoided at all costs. These substances have a high acid or alkaline concentration, which makes them potentially hazardous, bad for the environment, and damaging to your pipes. It is advisable to let qualified experts handle chemical usage and drain problems by using their expertise, reliable gadgets and tools.

Professional Preventive Drain Inspections: Regular expert maintenance, such as CCTV pipe inspections and water jetting, can help your drains remain free of buildup and debris. These advanced plumbing techniques ensure your drains remain as good as new and dispose of all waste water without any hiccups or issues.
