Importance of a Plumbing Inspection

When you move into your home, it is important that you have the plumbing inspected before you settle in for the long haul. It only tales one leaky fixture to cause significant damage, causing you to have to hire a professional to make all those repairs as well as getting all the damage belongings replaced. Here are just a few of the reasons to properly understand the importance of a plumbing inspection for new owners.

When the home was first built, many of those pipes and connections were made while the framework was in place. This allowed the contractors to come in and quickly button up all loose ends before the insulation and sheet rock were put in place. Once the surrounding walls went up, it becomes a challenge for the homeowner to visually detect any signs of leaks. A plumbing professional can come in your home and do pressure testing of certain locations without having to tear apart the walls. If the test reveal a problem, the technician can isolate the location of the leak and make that repair quickly.

Connections to water supplies need to be perfectly sealed or water can easily escape. A small drip under a toilet, shower, or sink, over the course of months could cause significant damage. Water always travels to the lowest point before it drips on the location below. You may see a water spot in the ceiling above that could be a result of a leaking toilet that is several feet in the opposite direction. The leaking water travels along beams until it can not travel any further, then dripping and causing significant damage. A plumbing professional will be able to isolate the cause of the leak and make that repair before your ceiling comes crashing down on the floor below.

A plumbing inspection is much less expensive than paying a professional to come out in the middle of the night to repair a plumbing emergency. Many times the plumbing experts will be able to identify a problem long before it turns into a plumbing emergency. If the inspection reveals a small leak or damage to a pipe connecting to the hot water heater, they can make that repair in a timely manner and eliminate it from becoming a problem down the road. The plumbing inspection will make your home safer and give you piece of mind that your entire system is running perfectly.
