We all find that the quality of the water varies greatly in our travels, and it’s essential that we do as much as possible to prevent illness. Just imagine drinking water contaminated with lead, cadmium, zinc, chromium and more – all because of your old hoses or taps haven’t been maintained or replaced.
Your gas and water pipes, fittings, fixtures, pumps and heaters age like every other component of your RV, and therefore, they need regular maintenance. Regular maintenance can help to save you money long-term by catching problems early, and prolonging the service life of each part.
It is recommended to have your RV plumbing serviced every 6 months to 12 months. High water hardness in states like WA and SA can affect items like your taps, valves and especially the anode in your hot water unit. If you are travelling in an area with high water hardness, it is recommended that you flush your tanks regularly and service your plumbing more regularly.
Fresh water tanks should be drained, flushed and treated when you get home from each trip, or every 6 months. It is recommended to flush and treat your tanks if you suspect you have picked up contaminated water to prevent algae growing in your tanks.
If you’re experiencing a specific issue or require service contracting, one of our qualified professionals would be more than happy to assess your requirements and develop a customised service strategy designed to serve your needs on an ongoing basis.
