Here are the top plumbing upgrades for your home

Even if your home's plumbing system is relatively new or in good condition, there are still some upgrades you can make to improve its efficiency, effectiveness, and overall look. Plumbing upgrades are especially important if you are considering selling your home in the near future or experiencing frequent plumbing problems in an older home. Whatever the reason you may be considering plumbing upgrades for your home, here are our four recommendations. The pros at L.D. Smith Plumbing can inspect your home to help you determine what plumbing upgrades should be a priority.

Replace older pipes with modern copper piping. Copper one of the most durable materials available for plumbing systems, but it's also resistant to corrosion and chemical reactions. This ensures that your plumbing system will continue to function properly for many years to come.

Install a backflow preventer on your home’s main water line. Backflow preventers are designed to stop contaminated water from flowing back into the home’s drinking water supply, helping protect you and your family from potential contamination.

Install water-saving fixtures such as low-flow toilets or faucets. These fixtures use less water, which can help you save money on your monthly utility bills. Additionally, installing these fixtures may even qualify you for certain tax credits and rebates in certain areas.

Install a tankless water heater. A tankless water heater can be a game-changer in your home. Not only does it provide endless hot water, it is energy efficient and some include smart technology to customize your hot water experience.

In addition to the above improvements, it's important to make sure that you're regularly conducting basic maintenance on your plumbing system. This means checking for any leaks or repairs that need to be made, as well as flushing out the system on a regular basis. By doing this, you can help ensure that your plumbing system will remain in good condition and running properly for years to come. L.D. Smith Plumbing offers a Plumbing Protection Plan to help you avoid costly repairs and potentially save money.

The official start of summer is weeks away, but our plumbing experts are already busy meeting customer demand for popular seasonal projects. Here are our most requested plumbing appointments during the summer. Do any of these sound familiar in your home?
  1. Extra outside faucets - This one is very popular for customers with gardens and landscaping projects who desire to have a faucet near their work area to avoid dragging a hose across the yard. Check out our deal on outside faucets here.
  2. Drain cleaning and sewer line replacement - Tree roots get thirsty so they prey on the old underground drain lines when the weather warms up. Drain cleaning and sewer line replacement in Indianapolis is very common this time of year as customers call us about foul smells or clogged drains.
  3. Remodel projects - Summer is the best time for major home projects and, often, remodeling work includes plumbing. 
  4. Gas lines - Summer means cookouts. We receive frequent calls during the season to install additional gas lines. 
  5. Irrigation systems - Customers call us to connect irrigation systems to city water.
