Plumbing Maintenance | Call Dixie

Is there anything in your business, office building, or factory that is ignored more than the plumbing system? In our opinion, the answer is no UNTIL there’s a plumbing problem. Then everyone wants to know what went wrong.

Out of sight, out of mind

Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air understands how it happens. A properly installed plumbing system should give years of reliable service to the point you forget it’s even there. After all, most of the pipes, fixtures, and drains are pretty much hidden. But make no mistake, your plumbing is subject to wear and tear and does deteriorate over time. When a breakdown does happen, it can cause direct damage that is expensive to repair. More importantly it can shut you down until the problem is fixed and the damage repaired. The lost income is often significantly more expensive than the damage and repairs.

Routine maintenance & inspections

Dixie is here to tell you the best way to prevent damaging plumbing problems is routine maintenance and inspections by one of our licensed plumbers. We pride ourselves on our training and expertise in commercial and industrial plumbing systems. Our attention to detail during plumbing maintenance can mean catching small problems before they become big problems. We back up our work with a satisfaction guarantee.

Benefits of professional maintenance

Yes, we will look for potential problems, but we can also improve the efficiency of your plumbing system. Corroded faucets and fixtures can reduce water flow. We will also look closely for any evidence of costly water leaks. In a commercial setting there can be dozens of fixtures and toilets. Two or three leaking toilets could be affecting your business’s bottom line to the tune of thousands of dollars a year. Besides that, wasting water just isn’t cool in an environmental sense.

Darn those drains

Nothing can ruin your day faster than a backed-up drain. If it’s in a bathroom sink, it’s a minor annoyance. If it’s a toilet, it’s a problem. If it’s in the sewage pipe carrying wastewater for the entire building, it could be disastrous. During an inspection we can often spot the symptoms of a slow or clogged drain. In the case of a sewer pipe we have a hydro-jetter which uses high-pressure streams of water to not only remove the blockage but cleans the pipes as well. Dixie can then inspect drainpipes with a video camera to locate any other blockages, bellies, or breaks in the line.

Longevity is cool

Finally, plumbing maintenance can slow down the wear and tear process we referenced earlier. The result for your company or business is a plumbing system that lasts longer when compared to systems that have been neglected.
