A plumbing inspection is a key part of routine maintenance. A plumbing inspection done by an experienced plumber will help keep the system in good shape and reduce the risk of plumbing emergencies that could require expensive repairs. 

What to Expect During a Plumbing Inspection

During a plumbing inspection, a plumber will evaluate the following components:

  • Plumbing Fixture

A Roger The Plumber professional will inspect every sink, toilet, tub, shower, and faucet in the home. He will look for signs of leaks and wear and tear, and make sure each fixture is working properly and efficiently. The plumber will make recommendations for repairs to address potential issues.

  • Supply Lines

The supply lines bring water to each fixture. The plumber will ensure the lines are free of cracks and tighten any loose connections.

  • Drain and Sewer Lines

The drain lines carry wastewater to the main sewer line, which then carries the wastewater out of the home and into the septic system. Our plumber will use drain cameras to check for clogs and blockages, and recommend cleaning the drain lines for greater efficiency. We will always provide an estimate before doing any cleaning or repair work.

  • Vents

The vents will be examined to make sure there is nothing obstructing them. Vents allow sewer gasses to escape the home.

  • Water Heater

A water heater needs to be emptied and cleared out at least once a year to remove any mineral buildup. If it’s been a while since your water heater was cleaned, the plumber will take care of this for you.

  • Water Pressure

Issues with water pressure may be caused by a range of underlying factors. The plumber will examine areas with low water pressure and recommend adjustments or repairs.

  • Sump Pump

A sump pump protects the home from water damage by moving water out of a pit or tank and away from the home. The plumber will test the sump pump to make sure it’s working properly.

The Benefits of a Plumbing Inspection

An annual plumbing inspection will help homeowners identify hidden issues that could cause serious problems in the future. In addition, an inspection will allow homeowners to prepare and plan for future repairs. A routine inspection will also help reduce plumbing expenses by repairing small issues before they turn into emergencies.
