A drip here and there may seem innocent, but leaks aren’t always visible to the naked eye. Start with bathrooms and explore larger building systems. Below are listed some of what Liberty Group can manage for you!
* Inspect all piping and drains at least annually; investigate any leaks or unusual noises.
* Water booster and circulation pump systems require bearing lubrication at least annually; inspection of couplings and checks for any leaks.
* Water heaters and boilers should be fire-tested periodically and inspected to adjust the flue draft and combustion air input to optimize efficiency.
* Remote drinking water chillers/water fountains need condenser fan motor bearings lubricated annually. Checks need to be made of all contacts for wear and pitting, and system control tests should be run. Refrigerant should be leveled according to manufacturer instructions. Draining and replacement of oil in the compressor oil reservoir, including filters, strainers, and traps should also be done.
* Sump and sewage pumps typically are replaced on an as-needed basis but should also be tested or checked for functionality. Exposed pumps should always be lubricated on an annual basis.
* Fixtures need checked, particularly those in public restrooms as they often withstand heavy use and abuse through regular use. Checking for leaks regularly and following the manufacturer’s recommendations on how often to replace internal workings such as flappers, cartridges and diaphragms will ensure you are preventing a water damage situation.
