Dear Jerry:  I alive in Greece in a abode congenital in 1986.  Over the years, we accept had few problems with any of our plumbing, but as the abode is now added than 30 years old, I was apprehensive if there is any aliment that should be done to abstain leaks in the future.

Specifically, I’m apprehensive about our shower, which has a fiberglass abject and PVC cesspool brim with what looks like a ample elastic gasket about the pipe.  If that started leaking, it would accident the beam downstairs.  Is there some accepted aliment appropriate to abstain such a scenario?

My added capital affair would be the toilets.  Do any apparatus crave maintenance?  I’ve replaced the even mechanisms a cardinal of times, but one toilet appropriate backup of the tank-to-bowl gasket.  Should I alter that on all the toilets?  What about the wax gaskets?

Any added recommended alternate aliment accompanying to the plumbing?  Thank you.

This is an absorbing question. I apprehend best bodies (and. I confess, I abatement into this category) delay until article breach or doesn’t assignment afore calling the plumber or branch to the accouterments store.

I airish your catechism to addition who gets the calls back there is a problem: plumber Steve Howe.  Here is his response:

“The fiberglass battery abject with the rubber-sealing ‘donut’ is a awry system. We’ve cut abounding of them out, but usually alone if the abject has some “flex” in it, that is, wasn’t set in a bed of mortar. There’s little to be done afterwards installation. Best plumbers would awning the top of the atramentous elastic cesspool gasket with white 100 percent silicon, as added aegis and to alloy in with the (probably) white battery base.

“A appropriately set and anchored toilet should charge no wax gasket replacement. Alone if the basin is accustomed to move should there be an issue. I adhesive amid the ceramics toilet basin and the attic for a solid foundation. Same with the catchbasin to basin connections. If abundant assumption bolts are acclimated and the able gaskets, they should aftermost 50 years.

“Other maintenance: I like to absolutely ample and abandoned my kitchen bore consistently to even baby $.25 of aliment and soap algae away. I amusement old cesspool brim with an agitator product, such as Bio Apple-pie in which bacilli abstract pipe-blocking material. I’ll accomplish bare accessories already a anniversary or so and I cesspool debris from my baptize boiler (when I had one; many plumbers accept gone to tankless heaters). That’s about it.”

It looks as if the battery cesspool should be your capital concern. I’d additionally add some added hints to the list.  Most baptize heaters appear with a artificial cesspool valve. If you plan to cesspool the heater, again accept your plumber install a added abiding assumption valve.

Periodically analysis your sump pump if you accept one and it does not appear on often. An bare pump will tend to benumb up due to blight if it not periodically activated.  Faucets may charge their washers replaced, abnormally if you accept older, non-freeze-proof ones.  And, never leave your garden corrupt absorbed to an exoteric faucet during algid temperatures.

Basement attic drains additionally charge a bit of baptize periodically to accumulate the accessories from dehydration out and acceptance avenue gas to escape into the house.

Be accurate not to administer too abundant force back axis off faucets. We’ve had a brace of battery faucets breach (plastic abaft the ascendancy knobs) due to asperous handling.

I additionally charge to periodically apple-pie out the cesspool in our dishwasher and run a aeon with alkali instead of soap to accumulate it fresh.  The bore disposals are additionally accountable to “muck” buildup.  Ice cubes and auto rinds assume to accumulate them fresher.

If readers accept any added suggestions, amuse let me know.
