Plumbing Inspection for New Homeowners

Plumbing Inspections

Plumbing is one of those things that most people take for granted. Once we turn on the faucet or flush the toilet, we just assume because it goes down that everything must be okay. Sometimes that might not be the case and before you know it, you might find yourself in the midst of a huge issue that seems “out of the blue”, when really it was just an unknown problem. The best way to prevent this from happening is to have a plumbing inspection for your home. 

Why You Need Your Home Inspected:

Having your home inspected by a plumbing professional is very beneficial. Plumbing issues can be costly and having your home checked for potential problems before they become major issues is the smartest thing a new homeowner can do to save money in the long run. During an inspection, your plumbing gets a full evaluation and care that it needs to be efficient and longer lasting. 
A plumbing inspector will check all of the pipes in your home for leaks- which is a common source of woes that is not only expensive to fix but makes your water bill higher than it needs to be. Finding and fixing these leaks saves you money in the long run. Water pressure and thermal expansion tanks are also inspected to make sure levels are correct and working properly to keep your plumbing system from failing. When water pressure levels are off it can lead to damage by putting too much of a demand on your plumbing and when thermal expansion tanks aren’t working properly, again it can put too much of a demand on your plumbing and lead to failure. Of course, toilets are also checked, as well as relief tanks because the water heater can burst if it is not working properly.
Plumbing professionals provide you with information on what works, what does not and what you might want to consider upgrading. And if health and safety is your top priority, you can expect a plumbing inspection to ensure those two things. Don’t wait to get your home inspected!
