Whole-House Plumbing Inspections

- Date: February 18, 2021
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
- 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.
- 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.
