The Benefits of a House Plumbing Inspection

Your home’s plumbing system is out of sight, out of mind… until something breaks or leaks and causes a water disaster in the middle of the night.

Don’t take your plumbing for granted. A whole-house plumbing inspection is the best way to prevent a sewer backup, broken water heater, or other unexpected and costly plumbing issues. 

What Is a Plumbing Inspection?

During a plumbing inspection, a plumbing professional closely examines every area of your home where a plumbing problem could possibly arise. This process includes:

  • Testing emergency shut-off valves
  • Checking water pressure and pipe connections
  • Inspecting sinks, showers, and toilets
  • Assessing fixtures, supply lines, and drains for water flow
  • Checking the water filtration system

This type of comprehensive inspection offers many benefits when performed each year. 

Improve Water Flow

Leaks, mineral buildup, and clogs gradually slow water flow to a dribble. Regular plumbing inspections catch problems and blockages before they become major problems. The work performed during an inspection can help keep your pipes, drains, and faucets flowing smoothly. 

Extend Life of Plumbing System

Plumbing needs ongoing maintenance and care, just like your vehicle or HVAC unit. Without regular care and attention, your plumbing system will falter and break. Regular plumbing inspections help keep your plumbing and fixtures functioning smoothly for years longer. This saves you time, money, and stress. 

Reduce Water Bills

Nobody wants to pay more for a utility bill than they have to! But if you’ve been neglecting plumbing maintenance, leaks and other issues are probably adding to your monthly bills. Fortunately, it’s easy for a plumbing inspection to identify likely sources of water waste, including an inefficient water heater and leaks, and resolve them before they hit your wallet.
