What is our plumber looking for in a Home Plumbing Inspection?

Leaks in Pipes, Connections, and Fixtures

Age of the Pipes and Their Materials

Plumbing Pipes Inspection

It is advisable to replace or reline pipes that are 60 years or older. If they are cast iron, then corrosion is a major issue that can be easily repaired with relining.

Water Pressure

Water Pressure Plumbing Inspection

Home plumbing fixtures are designed to operate under 80 psi. When incoming pressure is above 80 psi, there is a risk of blowing out washers, creating leaks, or wasting water. In the case of low water pressure, our plumbers can determine the cause and recommend remedies. Most homeowners take good water pressure for granted until they start a much needed shower only to feel a trickle of water. Yep, that’s due to low water pressure. Excessive high pressure, on the other hand, can stress to plumbing joints, supply lines, and faucets, and cause damage throughout the entire plumbing system. This illustration shows examples of water pressure flow.

Laundry Supply Lines

Laundry Supply Lines Plumbing Inspection

Failure in supply lines to washing machines is the #1 insurance claim. The black rubber hose used by most washers can begin to bubble and eventually burst after several years of constant pressure. That failure can happen at any time, usually when the homeowner is away. To avoid such surprises, our plumbers replace the black supply line with a stainless steel braided supply line.

Toilets
