Whole-House Plumbing Inspections

A dripping toilet or faucet is only a minor annoyance until you see your water bill. A backup sump pump doesn’t even warrant a thought until the power goes out in a rainstorm and your basement floods. You take your water heater for granted until you walk into the shower and are greeted by a torrent of ice-cold water. This list goes on and on. These problems and more can be avoided simply by having an annual home plumbing inspection.

Benefits of a Home Plumbing Inspection

Save money

  • Taking care of small problems like leaking faucets or running toilets can have a major impact on your water bills.
  • Small problems can be inexpensive to repair; once they become bigger problems, they can become much more expensive.
  • Those big problems – such as flooding – not only cost more money to fix but can cause extensive and expensive damage to your home and possessions.

Improve health

  • If the water in your house is not clean, it can lead to all sorts of health problems.

Peace of mind

  • An inspection of your home’s plumbing system leaves you with one less thing to worry about.

What to Expect from a Whole-House Plumbing Inspection

 Your whole-house plumbing inspection should include the following:

  • Examining fixtures, supply lines, and drains for water flow problems
  • Inspecting bathroom sinks, showers, and toilets
  • Inspecting your water heater
  • Checking water pressure and pipe connections
  • Testing emergency shut-off valves
  • Applying drain maintainer to all drains
  • Inspecting washing machine hoses for leaks, splits, and loose connections
  • Checking sump pumps and battery back-ups
  • Inspecting whole-house water filtration systems
