What Checks Are Part Of Plumbing Inspections?

Good quality plumbing systems are built to provide years of service. But these fittings and installations see regular use. This use causes excessive wear and tear, and sometimes you may notice that specific systems aren’t functioning as they should.

If you are either buying or selling a home, you need to be sure that the plumbing installations are in good condition. In all of these instances, it is in your best interests to get a plumbing inspection done. We at SPS Plumbers offer a wide variety of plumbing services and also provide plumbing inspection solutions.

Standard Plumbing Inspections

It would save you a significant amount of trouble and money down the track. Every plumbing company follows specific plumbing processes, but there are certain standard checks they follow. Here is a look at them:

  • Visual Inspection- Most plumbing professionals will first conduct a visual inspection and will look for signs of leakages such as seepage or water damage. They will inspect the taps, faucets, and showers for leaks. The experts will also check all the accessible and visible pipes for signs of damage.

This inspection is quite comprehensive. Regular inspections typically don’t include looking at difficult-to-access features of your plumbing system. If you need a more detailed review, you’d have to discuss it with the plumbing company.

  • Drainage System- The plumbers will also check the drains. They will pour large amounts of water into the sinks, showers, and tubs to see at what speed the water drains from them. If they notice a slowdown in the drainage, they will inform you about it.
  • Toilet Inspections– Problems with toilets tend to be ignored. A credible plumber knows  what to look for and will inspect every aspect of the toilets thoroughly. They will look for signs such as water running in the toilet bowl, stains around the toilet bases, and poor drainage.
  • Sewer Backflow- Sometimes drain blockages can cause backflow problems on your property. The household water can become contaminated with sewer waste, and the latter can come into the kitchen or bathrooms.
