An annual plumbing check is a great way to keep plumbing repair costs to a minimum by catching small problems before they become big expensive disasters.
A home’s plumbing system can wreak havoc if it fails. Normally, most plumbing problems don’t happen all at once. They start small and slowly grow over time. Catching problems early is precisely why the check is so important. So what is a plumbing check? Well let’s review some of the things it includes.
First, we’ll check the overall condition of your home’s water and drain system. Our experts know where to look and what to look for. We’ll also look at your water heater to make sure there are no leaks and to check the water pressure and inspect the venting system to make sure it’s properly attached and in good working order. Carbon monoxide is a byproduct of combustion and faulty venting could introduce these dangerous gases into your living space.
Plumbing checks also include faucets and sinks, toilets, garbage disposals, septic systems and more. A big part of the check is what you can’t see. Using video technology our techs can look into your sewer pipe deep underground to make sure there’s no root infiltration which could lead to damaged sewer lines. One common cause of blocked sewer lines is tree roots. Roots are attracted by the nutrients in the pipe and can quickly grow into the pipe, causing a sewer line backup.
