Plumbing Tips: Be Proactive, Not Reactive

Chalk drawing - Reactive or proactiveWhen we sat down with our owner and president of the PHCC of California, Mike Barker, one question we asked him was, “If you can give a homeowner one piece of plumbing advice, what would it be?” His answer? Be proactive, not reactive.

One of the biggest reasons for plumbing emergencies is lack of maintenance on fixtures and appliances. Scheduling routine appointments with your plumber to inspect and prevent issues with your system is the best way to be proactive with your plumbing, instead of reacting to unexpected damage with an emergency call to your plumber.
