Plumbing Inspections in Houston, TX

Plumbing Inspection Services in Houston, TX
A plumbing inspection allows our technicians to assess the cause of minor symptoms and find small issues to fix before bigger problems occur. Therefore, you should consider scheduling an inspection every year. It can determine if your building is up to code or even uncover issues whether you’re planning on selling your home or purchasing one. During an inspection, our skilled plumbing contractors follow a checklist to determine the condition of pipework, fixtures, and water-using appliances.
The Plumbing Inspection Process

Before scheduling an inspection, there are ways to prepare for it. We encourage you to assess how your plumbing is working. Even though you don’t have the access a professional does, you can note any symptoms and point a technician to potential trouble spots. Higher water bills often indicate an issue with your plumbing, so should be mentioned to an inspector.

During a plumbing inspection, the technician will look at the following:

  • Drains and supply lines
  • Existing plumbing fixtures
  • Sinks, toilets, and showers/bathtubs
  • Bathroom/kitchen/laundry room drainage and venting systems
  • The water heater and tank
  • Sump pump discharge
  • Under sink traps
  • Shut-off valves
  • Above-ground/exposed plumbing
  • Water filtration systems

In some cases, the technician will use an inspection camera to check on drains and sewer pipes. It can help find blockages, cracks, misalignments, tree roots, and other issues that need to be fixed immediately.

All findings will be documented, along with any adjustments or small repairs the contractor has made. The plumber should also explain to you what they found in a way you can understand. They may provide repair or service recommendations. It’s then up to you as to whether to heed their advice.

What We Look for During an Inspection

A plumbing inspection allows us to look for many types of issues. Our most common findings include:

Leaks and Drips

Even the smallest leak, including a dripping faucet, can waste hundreds of gallons in a year. Most plumbing leaks foreshadow bigger problems. A worn gasket, crack, or loose connection can turn into a broken pipe and torrent of water throughout your home.

Clogged Drains and Pipes

If your drains keep clogging up, it will put a strain on your pipes. There’s likely a deeper issue that only a plumber can address. We’ll find it during an inspection and make sure the problem is fixed permanently.

Water Pressure Problems

Reduced water pressure can be due to a blockage, leak, or malfunctioning plumbing component. If the water pressure is higher than normal, it can cause significant damage. Our plumbing inspectors can adjust water pressure and determine reasons for any changes.

Malfunctioning Fixtures

If a sink, tub, toilet, or other plumbing fixture isn’t working the way it should, a plumber knows how to inspect the unit, its connections, and the pipes serving it to find the root cause of any issues.

Old and Worn-Out Piping Systems

If you live in an older home, the pipes may be corroded and deteriorated to the point of failure. Worn pipes can leach potentially dangerous materials into the water supply. We check and replace old and worn-out piping systems to improve the function and safety of your home.
