Basic Checks That are Carried Out In a Plumbing Inspection
Plumbing systems installed properly last long provided they are inspected regularly by experienced professionals. An annual inspection goes a long way in extending the life of your plumbing system, offsetting the high costs of emergency repairs, and helping you stay on top of your property maintenance.
At SPS Eastern Suburbs we also recommend that you inspect the plumbing system of any property you intend to buy to avoid frustrating surprises. Inspection processes differ from company to company. But here’s what you can expect from most plumbers in Sydney:
1. Visual Inspection
The purpose of a visual inspection is to identify any visible signs of problems in the plumbing system and suggest remedial action to keep it healthy and running smoothly. It involves a visual walkthrough to check the condition of joints, seams, and noticeable signs of plumbing problems. The plumber will check if there are dripping faucets, a leak and water damage, cracks in pipes, etc. Regular inspections generally exclude hard-to-access areas. However, if a client feels the need for a thorough inspection, the professional will be happy to discuss the details.
2. Toilets Checks
People overlook any plumbing problems with toilets, and experienced plumbers know it. That is why the plumbers inspect the toilet system carefully. If they detect any signs such as lack of correct drainage, running water in the toilet bowl and even stains around its base, they suggest necessary repairs. They inform the clients of the importance of repairing toilets immediately and offer solutions.
3. Drainage System Checks
During an inspection, the professionals always check the drains because flooding in sinks, and shower area is a common complaint. The check involves pouring water in various places where water collects such as the kitchen sink, bathtubs, etc. If water drains very slowly, then the problem is noted, and the experts suggest a solution for repair.
Cross-connections in a plumbing system do sometimes happen and are dangerous because the potable water becomes contaminated by drainage water or some other source. Inspectors check whether the individual lines are intact and that there are no cross-connections.
Inspectors are experienced in detecting issues in various plumbing installations and features. They ensure that the plumbing system as a whole is sound and free of any problems. For any additional information, call us, and we will answer all your queries.
