How You Can Avoid Broken Pipes in Your Home, Honolulu, Hawaii

Plumbing issues, like clogged sinks and clogged drains, are one of the major areas of stress for a homeowner. Between costly plumbing service and the inconvenience, this is a headache that no one wants. However, if a plumbing problem should arise, a professional plumber is really your best bet. Fast Rooter Plumbing has been providing a variety of plumbing services for homeowners throughout the island of Oahu, and can handle some of the most troublesome plumbing issues for a reasonable cost. 

In an effort to avoid an unexpected plumbing problem, follow these steps:

  • Perform Routine Plumbing Maintenance: Pipes tend to burst in areas where water flows extensively, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and showers. If something becomes clogged in a pipe leading to a toilet or bathtub, the increased water pressure can lead to a burst pipe. It's important to contact an experienced plumber to provide routine maintenance and help you avoid any issues before they begin.
  • Keep an Eye (and Ear) Out for Trouble: You may have heard that a burst pipe occurs seemingly out of nowhere. However, there are numerous signs of a pipe in disrepair that will occur well before the pipe bursts. If you notice paint peeling, dampness, or plaster swelling, you should call a plumber right away. You may also notice an unusually high water bill or the constant sound of running water. 
  • Shut Off Water When Going on Vacation: There’s nothing worse than coming home to a broken pipe. If you have a lengthy vacation planned, shutting off your home’s main water valve is a simple way to give you peace of mind during your trip.

Broken pipes have the potential to cause expensive damage to your home. If you discover a leaking pipe in your home, call the plumbers at Fast Rooter Plumbing for speedy and reliable service. Visit the website or call (808) 734-4938 for further information.
