More and more homeowners and business owners are prioritizing annual plumbing inspections. Wear and tear are expected, and keeping up with a regular maintenance plan offers many benefits. But first, what exactly is a plumbing inspection? What will our plumbers check for during the inspection?
The plumbing inspector will go room by room, systematically ensuring all plumbing systems work and are leak-free (including all sinks, toilets, bathtubs and outdoor spigots). The plumbing inspector will thoroughly check for evidence of water leaks, as water leaks can lead to bigger problems, such as damage to the foundation of the home. He or she will also check any installed systems, such as a garbage disposal or sump pump, to make sure they are in good working order.
Here are the top 3 reasons many of our clients are having us perform an Annual Plumbing Inspection:
- Safety / Peace of Mind
One of the biggest safety concerns clients have as it relates to plumbing is ensuring there is no unknown leaks that are causing mold-growth. Keeping your home/office mold-free is a must to ensure the safety and health of the people living/working there.
Another safety concern is with plumbing systems, such as water heaters, as they can become a hazard if they’re not properly maintained. We’re talking more than just water leaks here. It’s vital to ensure all combustion products are exiting your home as they should be, as there is the potential for carbon monoxide leaks or even explosions.
It’s a great feeling to have the peace of mind knowing your plumbing systems are all functioning safely and as they should.
- Avoid Future Problems
You may think your home is leak free, but did you know that there are many silent killers? For example, you may have a leak that is going undetected because there is no visible evidence. It’s important to have a professional carefully investigate, because as you know, small leaks can turn into big problems.
Aside from leaks, many homeowners don’t give much thought to build-up or rust on pipes, sediment inside of hot water heaters, or slowly draining toilet bowls, until there is a complete stoppage or obvious issue. Plumbing inspections bring attention to these issues that are many times overlooked.
- Avoid Costly Repairs
Believe it or not, the cost of an annual plumbing inspection is only just a drop in the bucket compared to the cost of fixing much bigger issues. Early detection of problems, such as leaks, could save you thousands of dollars in replacement and repair costs (think of the cost and headache of replacing floors, ceilings, drywall, etc.).
