Plumbing Inspections

Plumbing systems are essential to your home, so they can disrupt everyone’s routines when things go wrong. Routine plumbing inspections can help catch minor problems before they worsen. Making these appointments can save you stress, anxiety, and money in the long run.

Curious about our plumbing inspections and how they work? Here’s everything you need to know.

When to Get a Plumbing Inspection

If your plumbing system is less than forty years old, we recommend getting a home plumbing inspection every two years.

If your plumbing system has been around for over fifty years, you should get an annual inspection because older plumbing systems are more prone to issues. Frequent plumbing inspections can help even the oldest systems stay in good working condition.

You should also schedule an inspection if you have any issues with your plumbing. No concern is too minor, so even if you’re unsure about something, it’s best to have a professional examine it.

What Inspections Include

Typical plumbing inspections include a thorough checkup of the water sources in your home.

During a residential plumbing inspection, our plumbers will search for leaks, blockages, and any other potential issues in the following areas:

  • Bathroom faucets, fixtures, and drains
  • Shower faucets, fixtures, and drains
  • Bathtub faucets, fixtures, and drains
  • Toilets
  • Water heaters
  • Dishwashers
  • Washing machines
  • Garbage disposals
  • Spigots

If our plumber comes across any issues, they will inform you and help determine your next course of action.

Why Plumbing Inspections Are Essential

Routine plumbing inspections are necessary to ensure that your home’s plumbing is in top shape.

There are many plumbing issues that the average person may overlook. What seems like minor plumbing problems to the average person might be a more significant concern to a professional.

Most components of your home’s plumbing are in the walls or otherwise out of sight, so many homeowners overlook plumbing issues early on.

When most homeowners notice an issue with their home’s plumbing, it’s after the problem has gotten worse. Smoak’s trained plumbing professionals can help determine an issue in your plumbing system before it gets out of hand.

Getting routine plumbing inspections can also save you money in the long run. Many plumbing issues can cause severe damage to your home and can damage your walls and floors. They can even promote the growth of fungus and bacteria. But when you get a routine plumbing inspection, you can prevent leaks and other issues before they cause damage.

Most importantly, plumbing inspections can help you get peace of mind that what you’re doing is best for your property. The quality of your property matters, and inspections are an important way to keep things operating smoothly.
