When it comes to the smooth running of your plumbing operations, prevention is the key to avoiding unexpected issues and costly repairs. At Eveready Plumbing – Canberra’s trusted plumbing professionals, we understand the importance of regular plumbing preventative maintenance. In this blog, we’ll explain why routine plumbing maintenance is crucial to ensuring your business or organisation’s plumbing functions efficiently.

Sewer Drainage System

Preventative Maintenance - Eveready’s Guide to Our Scheduled Commercial Plumbing Service

Neglecting regular maintenance for your sewer drainage system can lead to issues such as blockages, leaks, and unpleasant odours. Without proper care, these problems can escalate into more serious problems.

Monthly Preventative Maintenance

  • Conduct visual checks on all outlets and openings for damage.
  • Ensure proper flow
  • Look out for surcharges.

Annual Preventative Maintenance

  • Lift all manhole covers to check for correct flows.
  • Arrange for sewer drain camera surveys and reporting.
  • Clean the neutralising chamber.

Stormwater Drainage System

Ignoring routine checks for your stormwater drainage system may lead to clogged sumps, damaged grates, and potential flooding during heavy rains. Timely monthly inspections and annual maintenance are essential to prevent these issues and ensure effective drainage.

Monthly Preventative Maintenance

  • Visually inspect all sumps and outlets.
  • Confirm the integrity and security of all grates.
  • Identify any surcharges in sumps.

Annual Preventative Maintenance

  • Lift manhole covers to verify correct flows.
  • Thoroughly clean sumps of silt and debris.

Cold Water Service

Overlooking maintenance for your commercial cold water system can result in leaks, reduced water pressure, and malfunctioning fixtures. Regular annual inspections help detect and address these issues, ensuring a reliable and efficient cold water supply for your business or organisation.

Annual Maintenance

  • Scrutinise all pipe work for leaks and damages.
  • Check water connections to basin tapware.
  • Verify connections to sink tapware.
  • Inspect water connections to toilet suites.
  • Examine all tapware for leaking seals and tap washers.
  • Check test and report to Actew all testable dual check valves and RPZD valves.

Hot Water Service

Failure to maintain your commercial hot water system can lead to temperature inconsistencies, pressure problems, and potential system failures. Regular monthly checks are essential to prevent these issues and ensure a dependable hot water supply for your business or organisation.

Monthly Preventative Maintenance

  • Visually inspect the hot water system within the plant room.
  • Confirm the proper operation of pressure relief valves on the hot water system.

Neglecting regular maintenance of backflow protection and tempering valves can pose water contamination risks and unsafe temperature fluctuations. Without proper servicing, backflow protection devices may fail to prevent the reverse flow of contaminated water, while tempering valves can result in excessively hot or cold water temperatures, jeopardising user safety and water quality.

Fire Hose Reels

Failing to perform routine maintenance on commercial fire hose reels can lead to critical issues such as blocked valves, damaged hoses, and ineffective firefighting capabilities. In the absence of regular checks and maintenance, these vital firefighting tools may not function correctly during emergencies, potentially compromising the safety of your business or organisation and its occupants.
