A house, business, apartment, or even a factory contains millions of moving parts that are sometimes easy to forget or overlook… until they break down. If you want to make sure things continue to run smoothly, staying on top of all your home’s systems will ensure they work properly and will save you money from costly breakdowns.
Plumbing inspections are the best way to stay safe and comfortable all year long along with adding a home maintenance plan or schedule to prevent issues and fix problems.
Why Plumbing Inspections Are Important
Having a professional inspection is always better than attempting to perform one yourself. A plumber’s experience and expertise are crucial to detecting issues you could miss, and they can worry about things you probably don’t understand or don’t want to deal with.
Checking pipes under the house, dealing with annoying toilet flappers and slow-draining sinks test outdoor pipes for insulation, and many other aspects of an inspection by a licensed professional are a guarantee that everything is running smoothly. If the inspection is taking place in a factory or business, it will provide reliable proof that everything is working properly.
Top to bottom, a quality inspection can save quite a headache.
What to Expect
Professional quality plumbing inspections will include checking anywhere water runs through your house. This includes sinks, toilets, tubs, lines, pipes, septic tank, etc. It will also include the outside of your house where there are pipes and hydrants.
Some parts of the system will get a bit more attention such as toilets and water heaters. A thorough inspection is required to check water levels, flappers, and filler mechanisms. Water heaters will receive water temperature checks and have pressure relief valves and pipes tested before being flushed.
What to Do In Between Inspections
The best advice is to constantly run a maintenance program that fits your needs. Also, call a professional as soon as you see any leaks, blockages, clogs, or any other abnormal situations. Water can be a very destructive force and any problems related to it should be addressed quickly.
Prevention is always the best practice. Insulate exterior pipes, understand that fixtures, washers, and sealers all have a lifespan. If you haven’t performed any updates in your house, stay on the lookout for small leaks that may start to develop, and start planning now about what you might do in case something does break down.
