Plumbing Safety And Maintenance Inspection

Plumbing Safety And Maintenance Inspection

Unlike what most people think, your plumbing needs maintenance. If you have a leaky faucet and don’t get it fixed, it could waste many gallons of water and increase your water bill over time. Your emergency shutoff valve is also important to keep maintained, or it could malfunction and cause a lot of damage. If your emergency shutoff failed when you need it most, it could cost you thousands in home damage. There are many other plumbing issues that could go wrong and cost you a lot of money that you could have prevented by calling a plumber and having them do a maintenance inspection.

Maintenance Inspections Include

  • Dye Testing of Toilets: Dye testing helps determine if any of the toilets in your home have any leaks.

  • Check All Exposed Hot & Cold Water Supply Lines: Checking all supply lines helps to tell if any of them need to be replaced. Supply lines can deteriorate and eventually rupture, causing a lot of damage if not taken care of as soon as possible.

  • Check All Sink Piping: The traps in your sink piping can also become corroded and deteriorate if not maintained and replaced as needed.

  • Check All Fixture Drains: If your fixture drains are not able to freely run, they will become clogged, causing water to back up.

  • Check All Outside Faucets for Leaks: Leaks can be very costly if left unrepaired.

  • Check All Washing Machine Hoses: Hoses deteriorate with age and can rupture, causing damage.

  • Check All Emergency Water Shutoffs For Proper Operation and Tag All Emergency Shut Offs: If the shutoff is not working it can cause bigger problems if used for an emergency, because it can malfunction. Tagging valves that don’t work can save you money and helps prevent damage.
