When moving into a new house, it’s essential to do a home inspection which often includes a plumbing inspection too.
But, what about when you’ve settled in your home, a year or so? Is a plumbing inspection still necessary?
We would say a strong yes.
Plumbing systems are vital components of the home and they are always in use. Because of this, they need a little bit more care to prevent issues such as water damages and drainage problems that may be otherwise costly to repair.
An inspection is a preventive measure to help identify potential plumbing issues before they become a significant problem.
What does a plumbing inspection checklist contain?
The inspection usually involves a thorough examination of your entire plumbing system. That includes the drains, water heaters, pipes, and valves.
The inspector will check for:
- Any signs of leaks
- If the toilet is flushing well
- Signs of clogged drains
- Signs of corrosion
- Drainage problems
- Signs of water damage
- Improper fittings
- Inspection of the sewer lines and underground drains
- Checking the filtration system
- And much more
