Points of Inspection

To some extent, every plumbing system is unique, and some are one-of-a-kind. However, because they are usually all complex, there are many things that need to be looked at during an inspection. If you have a plumbing inspection, the following list explains a few of the things that need to be examined:

Basins, Sinks & Faucets

Faucets, sinks, bathtubs, toilets, and other standard plumbing fixtures can become plumbing problems in your home. Simple things like a leaky faucet could be an issue, even if it just results in a lot of wasted water and increased expenses.

Exposed Pipes and the Overall Plumbing System

We visually inspect exposed areas of your overall plumbing system to check for any damage or to find potential problems.

Washers, Hot Water Heaters, and Other Appliances

There is a wide range of problems that can cause issues with appliances that are hooked up to the plumbing system or that use water. If these appliances are not installed properly or if they malfunction, a leak can develop and cause water damage in your home or business. We look over all pipes, hoses, drains, and valves. We also check the emergency water shut-off valve as well.

All Other Pipes

It’s not just the items that are easy to see that can cause problems. For example, distribution pipes and other home plumbing pipes need to be checked thoroughly during an inspection to catch any potential issues.

4 Reasons Why Plumbing Inspections are Important

They Help You Make Better Home-Buying Decisions

Many first-time homebuyers fail to have plumbing inspections performed by expert plumbers before purchasing a home. Once the house or business is purchased, existing plumbing problems become a problem for the new owner. This could end up being another considerable expense requiring expert plumbing repairs or plumbing services for pipework problems, drainage problems, septic system problems, faucet problems, sink problems, or other types of water problems or flooding problems in your home.

They Help You Uncover Drain Blockages

Drain blockage often develops over time. If drain clogging is developing slowly, most people don’t notice it until they can hardly use their sink, shower or tub without it overflowing. In addition to the slow drainage, a clogged up drain tends to give off odors and smells that tend to be unpleasant. In any case, this can be taken care of as part of regular plumbing inspections by expert plumbers like Five Star Dayton Plumbing.

They’re a Part of Regular Maintenance

Households require upkeep, tune-ups, and other types of preventative maintenance — just like automobiles. If you don’t inspect your car or truck regularly and repair things going wrong, it will not be reliable. The same goes for a house’s plumbing; if you check your plumbing system, you can avoid emergencies such as leaks, and you might even be able to lower your energy bills.

They Help You Find Potential Problems

If your home has any structural damage, there are all sorts of problems that could be present, including issues with the home’s plumbing. Unfortunately, some of these issues may not be noticeable immediately, and this means that even after you believe all problems have been repaired, you could have a plumbing emergency and a significant expense down the line.

Plumbing Inspection FAQ

How do plumbers find water leaks?

There are special acoustic listening tools plumbers use to discover leaks. Devices like listening discs and ground microphones allow plumbers to listen for any escaping water dripping through pipes or even a layer of cement.

How do I know if there's a leak in my sanitary sewer line?

The positive news is that a sewer line leak will not drive up your water bill; the bad news is this makes it harder to tell when your sewer line needs repair. A broken sewer line may result in the rapid growth of grass and weeds on your lawn or a moist patch. There may also be a strange smell around your property, and you may start spotting rodents and pests. If a sinkhole has suddenly appeared near your property, that may also be the result of a broken sewer line.

What are the most common plumbing problems?

Plumbing problems are bound to happen. Even in newer homes, clogged drains or a water leak can show when you least expect it. Whether you’re living through the repairs or an older home, or just purchasing a new home and want to be prepared, these are the most common plumbing problems: clogged toilet jammed garbage disposal, clogged bath or shower drain, leaky pipes, running toilet, slow draining sink, water heater repair, low water pressure.
