It is imperative to get the most out of your plumbing inspection, as it could help you prevent major problems down the road that could cost you lots of money as a homeowner. Plumbing is one of the most important parts of your home, and you want to make sure it is properly maintained.
What Makes up a Good Plumbing Inspection?
When you hire a plumbing professional, you want to do so with confidence. A good plumbing inspection is going to involve checking all plumbing in the entire house, which means investigating anywhere that water runs through. This will include bathrooms, sinks, showers, kitchen sinks, tubs, laundry rooms, and more. We also recommend a sewer water test, or hydrostatic test, before purchasing any house. A sewer and water test can make you aware of any leaks under the slab that could lead to costly emergency plumbing repairs later, after you own it and would be paying for the plumbing repair.
What Else Do You Need To Know About a Plumbing Inspection?
We recommend the following:
- Have a thorough plumbing inspection at least every two years.
- Consider scheduling it in the fall, before cold weather could cause frozen pipes to burst.
- We will advise you on routine maintenance you can do in between inspections, as there are some tips you can do to keep your plumbing healthy
- Garbage disposals can be troublesome — if you have one, we will be sure to inspect it, as they frequently clog up and can cause bigger problems down the road if they are not addressed quickly.
