Preventive maintenance is always a good practice, especially when it comes to your plumbing system. An inspector can not only unveil hidden leaks but also bring up problems leading to water waste.
According to R.A. Biel Plumbing and Heating, these are the things you can expect during an annual plumbing inspection:
Identifying Issues Other Than Leaks
A plumbing inspection is not just a process of collecting evidence to back a drain and sewer repair; it’s also an opportunity to highlight non-leakage issues that can be just as problematic which you may have chosen to ignore.
A good case in point is running toilets. They obviously waste a ton of water 24/7, which can inflate your overall water bill by hundreds of dollars. Another example is extreme water pressure. Low water pressure may be indicative of underground water line leakage, while high water pressure can be damaging to plumbing fixtures.
Exploring Pipes for Clogs
Experienced plumbing and heating repair experts like R.A. Biel Plumbing and Heating use advanced cameras to discover waste buildup. Many of us are unaware that such a problem exists until the clog begins to inconvenience us. Early detection leads to swift action, allowing a qualified plumber to remove any unwanted substances from the pipes before they can cause headaches.
If your water-using appliances are rather old, it may be time to replace them. Outdated washing machines and dishwashers, among others, are costly to operate and maintain. Any efficient replacement is worth the expense.
Spotting Code Violations
Scheduling a plumbing and air conditioning repair does not necessarily bring your existing systems up to code. Building regulations may change from time to time, and it’s imperative to stay in compliance with them. Trustworthy inspectors are professionals familiar with the latest building codes and capable of determining violations.
