The Importance Of Keeping Your Sydney Plumbing System Maintained

Sometimes your plumbing system can kind of fall to the back of your mind and keeping it maintained and checking that it’s all working well can slowly slide further and further down the to-do list when there isn’t any active or obvious issues like a leak or blockage. Unfortunately, this is something that can end up causing major issues. Your plumbing system, like most things gets old and worn out over time, and since our plumbing is working all of the time and is such a crucial part of our day-to-day lives it definitely needs to be well maintained. 

There can be so many negative side effects to allowing your plumbing system to age without taking the necessary care for it including;

  • Growth of Mould & Other Bacteria

With aging, unmaintained plumbing systems, come things like cracks which can allow for moisture and dampness to accumulate in areas of your home and plumbing system where they shouldn’t. This dampness creates ideal conditions for mould, mildew, and other bacteria to grow and thrive. This can not only add to the damage already caused in your plumbing system, but can also pose a risk to the health of you and your family.

  • Contamination of The Water Supply

Cracks and holes in your water pipes can lead to different contaminants getting into your water supply. As you can imagine this can cause many issues in the long term and it’s important to avoid this. This can be a serious problem and is quite common in homes with older plumbing systems. 

  • Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure can truly be one of the most disappointing things. Especially if it happens out of nowhere and you aren’t used to it. Low water pressure or flow can affect your plumbing system in major ways beyond just causing a disappointing shower. All of the appliances within your plumbing system rely on a reliable and full water flow in order to run to their full ability.

  • Higher Than Normal Water Bills

One of the most obvious things that can come from old, plumbing systems is leaks. Leaks can occur in even the smallest of ways that may be undetectable to you within your home. Just because you can’t see the leak, however, they’re still there. Leaks can end up costing you extreme amounts of money in your water bill and sometimes this rise of a water bill may be the first sign of a leak.


All of these issues that come along with an aging, poorly maintained plumbing system are each serious in their own ways. We want to help you to avoid it getting to this point, or to repair any damage that’s already been done. If there is damage that you suspect or have already seen then it’s important that you get booked in right away so that our expert plumbers can get the issues fixed for you. 

If you haven’t actually noticed any of these issues, that doesn’t mean you aren’t at risk. Unfortunately, most of the time we may not even realise just how old our plumbing system is until it’s too late. With our technology and expertise, we can come out and inspect your plumbing issue to make sure it is well-maintained and will be working in top shape for years to come. One of the best options for rejuvenating your pipes and drains is pipe relining. This is a great way to repair, or give a new life to your plumbing to make sure it stays in working order for years to come with no issues.
