At Tap Doctor WA, we’ve got your safety at the forefront of our minds. Plumbing isn’t just about fixing up leaks, replacing old tanks, or trying to figure out why your water is running cold. It’s also about fixing up and checking in with elements of your home and plumbing system that could be dangerous for your household if something goes wrong. So, here are a few things to check in with to ensure that you don’t encounter any nasty surprises.
It’s a good rule of thumb to get your gas appliances, heaters and tanks checked by a professional at least once every two years. Although in some circumstances there may be visible or audible signs that something has gone wrong with your gas plumbing or appliances, in other situations there will be no warning. Carbon monoxide is a gas that you don’t want infiltrating your home; it is highly poisonous and unfortunately has no odour. The best way to make sure that everything is safe and sound within your home is to get an expert out to check your levels and systems.
Hot water maintenance:
Issues with hot water systems aren’t just frustrating, they can be dangerous too. For example, certain valves on your hot water system exist and operate to make sure the pressure and temperature of your water doesn’t go beyond a certain point. But, if those valves break or start to erode, it can become dangerous to use your hot water system at all – the pressure and heat can build up to a point that could be damaging for members of your household. Try to get a professional in to do a check on and maintain your hot water system around once every six months to stay on top of it.
Already at a stage where you haven’t been getting regular safety checks, or are concerned about your gas or hot water system? Have a plumbing emergency that needs to get sorted, fast? Tap Doctor WA provide emergency plumbing services across the state, 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. We know that some problems just can’t wait, which is why we always have someone on deck to come and help. Our emergency services cover everything from gas leaks, to burst pipes, blocked tanks or drains, and anything else you might need looked after.
Tap Doctor WA provides Home Health and Safety Checks for customers across Perth and Western Australia, because it’s smarter to take steps towards prevention rather than deal with problems when they (possibly literally!) blow up. Our 24-hour emergency services can also help those who are a little past the regular checks, and are dealing with a bigger problem. Your safety is our priority, and our team of expert plumbers know that your needs might go beyond a leaking tap or a blocked toilet. Get in touch today to book in a Safety Check for your home, or contact our emergency plumbing team to get someone out to you as soon as possible.
