Here are some simple things you can do to improve the efficiency of your basement plumbing. Don’t forget to do regular maintenance checks of the mechnicals in your basement.
•To prevent sewer gas issues, which typically stem from basement floor drains, occasionally pour a bucket of water down the drain to keep the trap seal full.
•Check your water meter when no water is being used, note the reading and check it 8-10 hours later. If the meter has moved, it may be due to an undetected leak within your home.
•If you are experiencing water hammer noises, you can install shock absorbers, which will absorb the vibrations in water lines.
•Check your washing machine hoses for abnormalities, if there is a bulge, leak or weak spot you should most definitely consider replacement.
•Your septic tank should be inspected and pumped every 3-5 years, which ultimately should save you from a costly filter field replacement.
