The 5 Levels of Plumbing Performance

Some people have a misconception that plumbing systems either “work” or they “don’t work.” While it might seem that simple from where you’re standing when you only see the bathroom or kitchen aspect of a plumbing system, it’s more complicated than that. When you look at how things work underneath the drains and appliances, there are many different levels of plumbing operation.

How is your plumbing in Montclair? Is it passable? Or perhaps you’re in a new home with sparkling new appliances that don’t need any help?

Our team specializes in plumbing care to the point of knowing all the ins and outs of your waterways. Regardless of the condition, your plumbing system is in, or how little you think you need our help, the truth is that we can help you assess the situation. Take a look at the different levels of plumbing performance and let us know if you need help.

Level 1: It’s Just Not Working at All

If your plumbing system is falling apart, or you’ve just bought a home where the pipes are barely even workable, then you’ve got a lot of work ahead of you. Our team provides comprehensive plumbing services for homes that really need them, so you don’t have to fret too much. This much plumbing work can sound like a scary thing to deal with, but with the right professional on your side, it’s hardly a problem at all.

Level 2: It’s Working Alright But It Needs a Lot of Work

We often see this level of plumbing performance in older homes that haven’t been maintained very much. Over time, pipes can start to corrode, leak, and fall apart to the point of showing serious signs of wear and tear. Sure, it might still work, but that’s no excuse to stave off the repairs that you might need soon. You could even benefit from some repiping or whole plumbing replacement services we offer.

Level 3: It’s Okay

Drains and toilets can clog every now and then, and pipe leaks might occur semi-regularly, but your plumbing system works well. This is a solid foundation to work from if you’re nervous about the condition of your plumbing system. As long as it works well enough, we can focus on making targeted plumbing repairs or repiping jobs so that your system runs better in the future.

Level 4: Only a Few Minor Problems

This is good. It’s not perfect, but it’s absolutely a great place for your plumbing system to be. Keep this condition as good as it is by scheduling plumbing maintenance, getting your drains and pipes cleaned by professionals, and upgrading your system with a garbage disposal.

Level 5: It’s Perfect or Brand New

Awesome! If you’re here because you follow our blog, or you’re just here because you’re nervous about your new plumbing system, we completely understand. Why not give us a call and schedule maintenance, or form a relationship with our team? We’ll be there when your new and shiny plumbing system starts faltering, and our experience is worth every penny.
