Why is Plumbing Preventative Maintenance So Important?
At Anytime Plumbing, we offer customizable plumbing preventative maintenance plans for commercial and residential customers throughout Santa Cruz County.

Furthermore, we will inspect all water-using appliances to ensure that they aren’t broken or malfunctioning. This includes showers, sinks, toilets, and water heaters. If we find any problems, we will explain the problem to you and recommend the right repairs.
What is a plumbing preventative maintenance plan?
We know how unpleasant plumbing problems can be. The customizable preventative maintenance plans offered by Anytime Plumbing are designed for commercial and residential customers alike.

How important is plumbing preventative maintenance?
Most business owners and homeowners don’t spend a lot of time worrying about their plumbing systems – you know, that network of pipes within the walls of their structures that deliver cold and hot water as well as eliminate waste. For them, it’s a matter of “out of sight, out of mind” . . . until something goes wrong. Just like the other preventative maintenance needs of your home, plumbing preventative maintenance can provide you a number of benefits (see below) and save you money on your utility bills. But, if the right steps are taken, you can avoid a number of different plumbing problems.
How does a proactive plumbing preventative maintenance plan work?
When one of the specialists at Anytime Plumbing comes to your business or home to perform preventative maintenance on your plumbing system, they will have a checklist of your plumbing system’s components that will be inspected. These target every facet of your plumbing system so it is inspected as thoroughly as possible and that nothing is overlooked. This checklist also helps to ensure that you are provided with a report of what’s been done and any problems that are identified.
All of your plumbing system’s most critical components are covered on our plumbing preventative maintenance including the drains, pipes, valves, and water heater. In addition to these items, your Anytime Plumbing specialist will do the following:
- Check flushing handles and internal components of all toilets to ensure they work properly
- Check garbage disposals for damage and/or leaks
- Check showers, sinks, and tub drains for blocked vent pipes and clogs
- Drain and flush the water heater (removes any sediment build-up)
- Inspect caulking around sinks, toilets, and tubs
- Inspect for corrosion and leaks around exposed pipes
- Inspect the operation of water heater vent pipes
- Inspect water heater burners and clean where necessary
- Look for cracks or leaks in washing machine hoses
- Test toilet gaskets and seals for water leaks
- Test water pressure for problems with valves and water lines as well as sediment build-up
It’s unfortunate, but many business owners and homeowners often take their drains, faucets, and toilets for granted. By scheduling plumbing preventative maintenance, it will save you a lot of frustration and grief as well as money on your water bill. For maintenance and regular checks on the pipes and plumbing, we can schedule an evaluation and let you know when repairs are needed.
