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

Hidden Damage

Unfortunately, plumbing issues are often only brought to our attention when it’s too late. Hidden behind a wall, potential problems go unnoticed and rarely cross our minds. Without regular plumbing inspections, what was a potential issue is now an actual reality.

Saving Time & Money

Whether it’s not being able to use a sink or having to turn your water off, it’s an inconvenience that could have easily been avoided. Preventative plumbing maintenance means quick touch-ups on your plumbing system and money left in your pocket that would’ve been spent on repairs.

Main Sewer Line

The main sewer line is central to your home’s plumbing system, connecting your home to the city’s sewer. Asking if there is an issue with the mainline is essential because it can be costly to fix the longer it’s left. Luckily, our team at Five Star is equipped with a fiber-optic camera. This footage can be reviewed onsite, diagnosing the issue sooner rather than later.

Pipe Conditions

Ask your plumber about your plumbing system and its components. What condition are they in? Could they benefit from a drain cleaning? Is there evidence of corrosion? This is a fundamental question to ask as pipe corrosion is common in older homes, a serious issue caused by outdated materials and daily use over an extended period. Inspections would identify the corrosion before it becomes severe.

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.
