Ever since ancient civilizations, like the Greeks, Romans, Persians, Indian, and Chinese, grew in size, plumbing became an integral part of their infrastructure. It provided the need to separate drinking water from waste. And since ancient times, plumbing has evolved–improved–as many inventions typically do as time goes by. This is, in part, thanks to regulations and laws enforcing them; expectations that would have been a PR disaster for Rome if the same laws and regulations were around. However, regardless of how more advanced plumbing is, plumbing has yet evolved to repair itself. Until then, we rely on plumbing services that professionals are certified to fix.
Here is the rub: letting a leak go because you do not want to pay for plumbing services is only going to hurt you more in the end. Let us put it this way, any average home you choose is probably leaking 10,000 gallons of water every single year. To put that into context, an average load of laundry is using about 37 gal
Plumbing is one of the essential functions of any modern home, and without an efficient, working system, a household may rack up huge water bills due to leaking water, and leaked water can damage drywall and delicate electrical components in the home. And an older plumbing system may need replacement as a matter of course, since newer pipes and nozzles will be much less prone to damage, rust, leaks, and more, and the newer system may be also more water efficient to meet current standards of saving water as part of the “go green” initiative. Sometimes, maintenance on a plumbing system means fixing a leak or replacing rusted out pipes, and professional drain cleaning is another service that can be called upon, not to mention fixing a water heater leak or using a sewer snake to find the source of clogs.
