Preventive Maintenance Plan

As part of our Think Green initiative, we offer Preventative Maintenance for those wanting to improve their energy rating and utility bills.  While also protecting their plumbing fixtures in the home.  This inspection aims to identify and rectify potential risks around your home or office.  Those of which contribute to water wastage.  The home health report  will assist in reducing water consumption leaving you with a energy and cost-efficient home.   The plan carries a number of benefits, including:

  • Reduced water consumption
  • Avoidance of potential damage to hot water systems
  • Flood avoidance through installation of stainless steel braided hoses
  • Improved health and safety through prevention of sewer waste back-flow

All plumbing fixtures are inspected for visual signs of ageing or stress, correct installation procedure, state regulations for gas installations, and quality of product previously used.  This inspection will assist in establishing the location of plumbing services and give you an understanding of the plumbing in your home.
