Plumbing problems are inevitable. It’s easy to maintain your system when you are the only one using it, but more difficult when you are relying on the behavior of tenants. Luckily, by partnering with them, many major problems can be avoided. These five tips will have everyone working together to keep your systems in tip-top shape.

  • The best way to prevent a catastrophe is with prevention. Create a regular maintenance schedule and inform tenants they need to make themselves available to the plumber. 
  • If tenants can’t reach you, make sure they know who to contact in case of an emergency.
  • Educate your tenants about the basics of plumbing. Teach them the early warning signs of major plumbing problems. While you’re at it, create an easy to share document that details important information, like items that should not go down your garbage disposal or down the drain.
  • Empower them to take action. Label your property’s water valve shut-off, so tenants can easily locate it and shut it off. 
  • Provide them with a plumbing kit that includes basic essentials like a plunger, a wrench, pliers, and hair screens for the bathroom. This relatively inexpensive kit could save you a small fortune in plumbing headaches.
