Why Plumbing Inspections Are Important
Maintaining your home or commercial plumbing is essential to efficient operation. Some customers don’t know why we recommend regular plumbing inspections, but they mean the difference between receiving simple plumbing maintenance and requiring an expensive plumbing repair. Let us answer some common questions regarding inspections to help you better understand why they’re an integral part of your home or facility maintenance.
What is a Plumbing Inspection?
During an inspection, a licensed professional from Waldman Plumbing & Heating will examine your plumbing system. This examination will cover pipes, drainage both indoors and out, fixtures & appliances (like your water heater), and waste systems.
What is the Inspector Looking for During an Inspection?
The main focus is potential leak detection, assessing drainage systems for clogs and corrosion, determining the water heater meets operational standards, checking pipe insulation, and ensuring the water meter is functioning properly. We will also inspect your sewer system using state of the art video inspection.
How Often Do I Need an Inspection?
Waldman Plumbing & Heating offers service agreements and annual inspection plans to ensure your plumbing system is properly maintained. If we find any problems during our inspection, we may be able to conveniently fix them in the same visit.
What Happens After the Inspection?
Our inspection should be followed by routine maintenance and cleaning. This can include repairing leaky faucets or running toilets, cleaning garbage disposals, and flushing plumbing traps to remove debris.
Properly maintaining plumbing is a vital part of standard home or facility care. Having a pipe burst or a drain back up can cause problems requiring costly repair. The repair often involves more than just your plumbing system, since drywall and flooring commonly require replacement due to water damage. You can ensure your home is protected by scheduling regular maintenance and inspections with a Boston plumber to keep your system operating efficiently. If you have any more questions, or would like to schedule an inspection, please call Waldman Plumbing at (781) 780-3184 to speak with one of our technicians.
