What Happens During a Plumbing Inspection?

A plumbing inspection is a comprehensive process aimed at evaluating the condition and functionality of your plumbing system. Here's an overview of the steps we take to ensure a thorough assessment:

  • Visual Inspection: We begin with a visual examination of the entire plumbing system, looking for any visible signs of wear, corrosion, or leaks.

  • Water Pressure Check: Proper water pressure is crucial for the efficient operation of your plumbing. We assess water pressure throughout the system to identify any irregularities.

  • Drainage Inspection: We inspect drains for clogs and ensure proper drainage. This includes sinks, showers, and other fixtures. Sewer camera inspections are also performed to inspect the main drain line.

  • Appliance Inspection: We examine plumbing-related appliances, such as water heaters, water filtration systems, sump pumps, and dishwashers, to ensure they are in good working condition.

  • Pipe Assessment: Our experts assess the condition of pipes, checking for corrosion, rust, or any other signs of deterioration.

To ensure the optimal functionality and safety of your plumbing system, several factors must be in good working order. A passing plumbing inspection typically means the following:

  • All fixtures are in good working order.

  • The home has unobstructed drains and efficient water drainage.

  • All plumbing-related appliances operate as intended.

Protect Your Plumbing by Detecting Issues Early

Investing in regular plumbing inspections is an investment in the longevity and efficiency of your plumbing system. By detecting issues early on, you can avoid more extensive and costly plumbing repair calls down the line. Here's how our plumbing inspection services help you protect your plumbing:

  • Early detection allows for timely repairs, preventing minor issues from escalating into major problems that could lead to costly repairs or replacements.

  • Hidden leaks can cause water damage that may go unnoticed until it's severe. Our inspection services identify and address leaks before they result in structural damage.

  • Detecting issues with gas lines or water heaters ensures the safety of your household by preventing potential hazards such as gas leaks or scalding accidents.

  • Regular inspections and maintenance contribute to the longevity of your plumbing system, minimizing the need for premature replacements.

Home Inspections vs. Plumbing Inspections

When it comes to inspecting a home, not all assessments are created equal. Home inspections, while comprehensive in assessing the overall condition of a property, often fall short when it comes to plumbing. A general home inspector may conduct a visual check for leaks and verify that water runs, toilets flush, and drains flow, but these professionals typically lack the specialized knowledge to assess the plumbing system thoroughly.

Our dedicated plumbing inspection services go beyond the scope of a standard home inspection. Our trained professionals specialize in plumbing systems, possessing the expertise to identify potential problems that may escape the notice of a general home inspector. Plumbing issues can be elusive, and without a focused examination, they may remain undetected until they escalate into significant concerns.

Home inspectors generally focus on the visible aspects of a property, leaving the intricate details of plumbing to specialists. Unlike home inspectors, our plumbing experts are well-versed in local building codes and regulations, ensuring that your plumbing not only meets but exceeds the necessary standards. This dedication to code compliance sets our plumbing inspection services apart, guaranteeing the integrity and safety of your plumbing system.

Plumbing Top Out Inspections

Another type of plumbing inspection is a top-out inspection. This specialized assessment occurs during the construction or renovation phase of a building, focusing on the installation of plumbing lines before walls and ceilings are closed up.

Top-out inspections are conducted when the rough plumbing, including supply lines, drain lines, and vents, is in place but exposed. This allows our experts to ensure that all components are correctly installed and comply with building codes.
