School is out here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Less stress. Slower schedules. Having some fun on the beaches. But even though school is officially on break, it doesn’t hurt to get a little education on your plumbing system. There’s nothing more stressful than an unexpected plumbing problem. Summer is the best time to learn a little more on keeping this important system in tip-top shape before the hustle of Fall.
These ABCs of your plumbing system help you stay alert to potential problems
and prevent many issues.
A: A thorough inspection of your plumbing system is a must.
Out of all your home’s systems, the plumbing system is the one that can save-or cost-you the most money and inconvenience. Try going about your daily routine without a working toilet. Or a functioning shower or tub. Take the time to perform a thorough inspection of your interior and exterior plumbing. Carry a pen, paper, make notes and return to the scene with our experts for repairs.
Plumbing problems are stressful. And expensive. Many can be prevented by taking note of the following ABCs of your plumbing system.
B: Backed up drains need professional attention.
Pesky backed up drains occur in the bathrooms, kitchen, mudrooms and any other area of regular use. Many homeowners live with backed up drains for weeks or months. A slow drain becomes the norm. There are many reasons for backed up drains. From hair clogs to debris to lime. The causes behind yours could be any number of things. But a backed up drain can cause further damage to your overall plumbing system. Remember, the home’s plumbing system intersects in different areas of your home. One area impacts another. Before you know it you could be dealing with a full-on plumbing crisis costing thousands of dollars, all from a backed up drain. Be homeowner smart and protect your investment by professionally addressing backed up drains.
C: Clean your plumbing system.
Keeping your plumbing system clean should be a regular task as a home or business owner. Keeping drains free of debris keeps them running efficiently and prevents further damage. Cleaning your hot water heater has many benefits, too. Especially when you consider that it’s one of the most important items in your plumbing system. Hot water heaters need a good flush and drain at least once a year.
Here are 5 top reasons your home or business hot water heater needs a
routine flush and drain.

I called the number and had to leave a message. Within 10 minutes someone called me back. They came out within a few hours and fixed my drain. Clay, my technician, was professional, and knowledgeable with a great attitude (especially on a hot Friday afternoon)! Fixed my problem in no time. Their service is outstanding. And prices are reasonable for the area. I would definitely use them again!
Stephanie Mellott First of all, they were ON TIME. In fact, the first visit was early! A slab leak is scary, but within the week, I was scheduled for repair. It took a matter of hours. All of the plumbers were polite and worked quickly and cleanly. When the contractor came to assess the damage to the house, he was so impressed by the lack of damage to my home that he asked me for the name of ASAP twice! Highly recommend this company and their services.
As a property manager I have used ASAP Plumbing for the last 3yrs to service our 300+ rental properties throughout the Charleston area.
