The plumbing system for your home is more than just a collection of pipes that supply water to and around your house. Rubber gaskets and hoses are necessary to prevent leaks from plumbing pipes. If they aren’t used or maintained properly, rubber parts in your home’s plumbing system can crack and leak over time.

Leakage and water damage can be caused by cracked plumbing seals. However, professional Long Beach plumbers can help you maintain your plumbing system.

Tips On Preventing Dried, Cracked Seals and Dry Rot

Your sink and shower gaskets won’t last forever. It is important to inspect them for damage and have them replaced as necessary. This will help prevent plumbing leaks and water damage.

You don’t want to know what you don’t know, especially when it comes plumbing maintenance. So make sure you regularly inspect your plumbing seals.

Rubber gaskets and rubber hoses can be preserved by keeping them moist. Dry rot and cracking can be caused by not exposing them to water. Once dry rot has set in, it is very difficult to reverse.

You should turn the faucet on for a few seconds every day if you have a bathroom that isn’t used often, such as a guest bathroom or a basement sink that’s used only occasionally. This will make sure that the gaskets are properly lubricated. This simple and quick step will save you time and money from plumbing leaks.

The base of your toilet is a common place where rubber seals can leak. It is possible that the seal has failed. If this happens, you will want to call us immediately to prevent further water damage to your flooring beneath your toilet.
