Think Green

Sustainable Plumbing Brisbane

Committed to environmentally-friendly practices for over 40 years, Akins Plumbing offers the very best sustainable plumbing in Brisbane.

Preventive Maintenance Plan

As part of our ‘Think Green’ initiative, we offer Preventative Maintenance Plans for anyone wanting to improve their energy rating and utility bills. Through a thorough inspection, the plan aims to identify and rectify potential risks around your home or office that contribute to water wastage, thereby reducing water consumption and leaving you with a more energy and cost-efficient space for years to come. The perfect solution for anyone looking to reduce their energy costs, the implementation of 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 backflow

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.

What do you get? Once the inspection is complete, we will provide you with a full report of our findings, including images from the CCTV camera inspection. Based on the findings, we will also give you a quote outlining the recommended action required.

As part of our Preventative Maintenance Plan, we will inspect the following:

  • Pressure Test Water Main to determine if Pressure reduction is required-over pressure can void tapware warranties and shorten the lifespan of plumbing fixtures
  • Hot Water System Inspection-check unit and valves are 100 % operational
  • Water Efficiency test to gauge water consumption
  • Inspection of all flexi-hoses connected to plumbing fixtures. Determine the quality of product and or signs of distress
  • Overflow relief gully for sewer lines to avoid backflow of sewer waste into your home
  • Survey Stormwater and sewer lines using CCTV Drain Camera. Images supplied. Subject to accessibility
  • Urban utilities water meter box for accessibility and ease of use
  • General inspection of the property to investigate any other general plumbing needs that could affect your home
