The importance of regular plumbing maintenance

Every property owner knows that proper maintenance is necessary to keep various features on their property in good shape. This also applies to all the plumbing installations on your property. We at SPS Plumbers have seen how lack of maintenance or irregular maintenance of plumbing systems can affect their working and reduce their lifespan. While some property owners handle basic maintenance themselves, it’s best to hire a professional for preventative plumbing maintenance solutions.
As part of these services, we will send out a licensed plumber in Sydney to your home or business at pre-decided intervals to carefully inspect every aspect of the plumbing. We use the latest and most technologically advanced equipment in our work and make sure that all the installations are inspected for deterioration or potential faults. Catching these early is the best way to improve the functioning and increase the longevity of all your plumbing fixtures and installations.
Regular plumbing maintenance- the benefits
If our plumbers identify any potential problems during the inspection, you will be informed about them and we will fix them quickly and cost-effectively. This early intervention goes a long way in preventing the problems from escalating and causing more hassles and higher expenses in the future. There are a number of benefits to getting regular plumbing maintenance done from experts like us:
1. Increases the lifespan of plumbing systems
Plumbing systems are quite complex and since many of the lines are interconnected, a problem in one of them can affect some other installation. For example, a drain blockage in the main line can result in backup in the kitchen and bathroom sinks as well as in the shower and bathtub areas.
CCTV drain cameras will be used to check the condition of underground drain pipes of you find that you are using the plunger too often. This helps in quick and early identification of a potentially stubborn clog in the system that can be cleared quickly before it aggravates. We also check and replace deteriorated or malfunctioning fixtures and this helps increase the lifespan of your plumbing system overall.
2. Better air quality
If you are wondering what a plumbing system has to do with air quality- read on. Leaking or corroded water pipes can cause seepage and leaky spots in your home. Aside from this, high water pressure may result in a constant leak in the pipes. The moisture results in mildew and mould growth, affecting the quality of air in the indoor areas of your home. Professional plumbing maintenance can help you stay on top of required repairs to damaged and leaking pipes, preventing these problems and keeping the indoor air quality at healthy levels.
3. Save money
Regular preventive plumbing maintenance can help you save a significant amount of money on your water bills. You will also save on higher plumbing repair costs if you address minor plumbing problems on time.

Why CCTV Drain Cameras Are Integral To Drainage Repair Work

Drain blockages are common in many homes and commercial properties, and are dreaded plumbing issues because the plumbers need to dig up various areas of the landscape to fix the problem. This can become extremely expensive, time consuming and troublesome too.
In comparison CCTV drain camera inspections are a cost effective method of figuring out what the exact nature of the issue is. The small camera inspects the entire drain internally to locate the problem and determine what kind of plumbing work is required. Using CCTV drain cameras eliminate the trouble of digging, fixing or replacing drain pipes and spending a large amount of money on the job before being aware of the actual cause of the problem.
Why use CCTV cameras?
We at SPS Plumbers are a very technologically advanced company and use the latest plumbing tools and techniques in our work. We train our plumbers to use these CCTV drain cameras in their work. There are a number of benefits of using these tools such as:
• Accurate readings- CCTV drain inspections are extremely accurate, because the camera’s display shows the live feed. Our plumbers inspect this from outside the drains. This then allows them to determine the exact depth & location of the blockage, and the cause of the damage. They are also able to see if there are any fissures and leaks in the drain pipes. It is crucial to unblock the drains and repair leakages as soon as possible to prevent problems in the future.
• Wider view- CCTV drain cameras are small devices that just slide through the drain pipe and offer an almost 360°, field of view, allowing our plumbers to see every area of the pipes including any damages or defects that may have occurred such as root obtrusions, holes or cracks in the pipes, bad joints and more. It’s also quite simple to determine how much debris is obstructing the pipe and the existing flow line.
• Record of results- When the camera passes through the drains, there will be recordings of the results. The experts can go back to the problem and strategize the best plan to solve the problem.
• Excellent solution- We can complete CCTV inspections with minimal disruption and they are an accurate and reliable method of determining what the drainage problems are. Our licensed plumber in Sydney can immediately identify where the damage/debris is without any need for excavation that can be quite time-consuming.
Hire skilled and experienced plumbers for CCTV inspections and drain repairs
As you can see, there are a number of distinct benefits to CCTV drain camera inspections. We also use trenchless drain repair methods of fixing damaged or deteriorated drains and this significantly reduces the cost of the project for our clients.

What is Water Hammer and How Can It Be Fixed?

Have you heard water hammer of pipes during the night even when you have turned off all taps and faucets? If the hammering & banging noises in your home’s plumbing are annoying, you have a problem that needs to be fixed as soon as possible. It’s important to call a licensed plumber in Sydney like the ones at SPS Plumbers without delay, to get the problem addressed. However, here is some information that will help you understand what water hammer is.
What causes hammer in water pipes?
There are two main causes of noises in your plumbing:
• Air trapped in water pipes results in these noises. They happen when you turn on any valves or faucets.
• Water hammer also happens when you shut off the water suddenly. This often starts out with a big “bang” after which you will hear diminishing hammering sounds.
• When you turn on valves/ faucets and there is air trapped in pockets somewhere in the pipes, it becomes compressed. Turning on faucets releases this pressure and results in the loud sounds you hear.
But water hammers are a little different. The main reason why this sound occurs whenever you turn off a faucet or valve is that the water’s momentum causes it to crash straight into the valve, causing this initial hammering sound. The vacuum formed in the air cavity further down the pipe results in a repeated surge of water until the air pressure slowly diminishes.
Water hammer- diagnosis and solutions
You might be able to stop the problem, by turning off the water at your house mains, draining the water from your pipes & then turning it on again. This may work well on water hammer as well. However, if it doesn’t, the only other method to prevent it from occurring is to turn off the faucets slowly to prevent the sudden rush of water against the faucet’s valve.
All modern plumbing installations have special air chambers installed in them; these prevent the water hammer problem from surfacing. If your home’s plumbing system has these particular air chambers, mineral deposits clogs in them may be causing the problem. Our plumber would be able clean them thoroughly, and you won’t have to worry about closing the taps slowly in areas where the water hammer occurs.
If you live on an older property, you have two options. You can reduce the water pressure and check if that fixes the problem, or call us for getting an air chamber fitted into the system. In most instances, this becomes the best solution. If left unchecked, water hammer can result in pipe bursts; these can prove to be a more severe issue and more expensive to fix.

About Water Meter Replacement

Water meters are an integral fixture on all properties and in most instances, these features last for a number of years. But there are certain situations in which water meter replacement may be required and you may need to hire an experienced licensed plumber in Sydney to inspect the installation thoroughly to identify where the problem lies. The experts at SPS Plumbers have put together some useful information that will help you determine whether you need to replace the water meter on your property or not.

Signs that your water meter needs replacement

  1. Your water bills are excessively high

If you feel that your water bill is too high compared to your consumption, there’s a good chance the water meter is functioning erratically. The aspect to keep in mind is that once the meter begins to give the incorrect reading, you will just end up paying higher bills each month.

  1. Your meter is more than 15-years old

Water meters can begin to work erratically and provide an inaccurate reading over time. If the meter on your property is over 15 years old, its time get it replaced. It may be costing you money without you realizing it. If it’s over two decades old, you’d have to get it replaced regardless of whether you want to or not. If you move into an older house, it’s important that you check the age of the meter to identify whether it needs replacing.

  1. You prefer to get real-time readings

If you are very conscious about the amount of water you consume and want a record of how much water your household is consuming, you may want to consider replacing the older standard water meter with a smart water meter. This installation will provide real-time information whenever you need to access its. It’s a great way to keep a closer eye on your water consumption.

  1. If it’s a shared water meter

If you live in a multi-unit apartment, you might have to share a single water meter with the other tenants and this could cause a lot of problems for all the people involved. If you want to be sure that you are paying only for the amount of water you use, you should consider getting a separate meter installed.

Water meter replacement isn’t something you can entrust to a novice. We at SPS Plumbers are one of the leading companies in this space and can help you with all the information you need about water meter replacement and what’s involved. We cater to both commercial and residential customers and handle every job expertly at very cost-effective pricing.

The importance of Getting a Water Filtration System Installed in your Home

Home water filters are no longer an exception and many people have started to get these features installed in their homes. These systems are most commonly installed on the refrigerator or kitchen tap and it’s still rare to find homes that have whole water filtration systems. When it comes to filtered water, most of us tend to stop at the kitchen and we don’t feel we require that level of water purity in the rest of the house.

But the fact is that we use far more water to do the dishes, the laundry or even in the showers and baths, than we do on drinking or cooking. While the water that comes from the Sydney main lines is quite good, it’s not entirely pure.

Whole water filtration systems- the benefits

Since the water has a number of sediments and minerals, we at SPS Plumbers recommend that you get a whole home water filter system installed in your home. Take a look at why this matters:

  • Fewer chemicals- When you use softened or filtered water for your home, you will automatically end up using far less chemicals with all your cleaning. Using softened water helps eliminate all the grime and scum that accumulates on shower screens and bathroom very easily.
  • Healthy and gentle option- Many children today suffer from sensitive skin and allergies. Softened water helps eliminate skin conditions such as eczema and dry skin.

Better for the home appliances- The minerals in the water make it hard which results in the build-up of limescale and grime on bathroom fixtures, appliances and clothes too. When you prolong the lifespan of the appliances, fixtures etc. it helps you save a significant amount of money on replacements.
