What is a Whole-Home Plumbing Inspection?

A whole home plumbing inspection is a comprehensive evaluation of the plumbing system and components in a house. This type of inspection should be conducted by a licensed plumber and can include the following key components:

Water Heater Inspection

The type of water heater system will be notified (tank, tankless, gas, electric, etc), and the condition of integral parts of the system will be documented for you. Some water heater inspection items include:

  • Anode rod
  • Emergency water and gas shutoff
  • Burner and pilot assembly condition
  • Temperature and pressure valve
  • Drain valve
  • Exterior condition of water heater
  • Expansion tank
  • Circulating pump

Bathroom Systems & Fixtures

Our plumbers will inspect your toilets, sinks, and bathtubs and showers and address any concerns you may have. These bathroom inspection items include:

  • Toilets: tank components, flush power, bowl cleanse, emergency stop and supply, and toilet attachment to the floor
  • Sinks: faucet condition, emergency shutoff and supply, drain assembly condition, and sink trap and drain function
  • Tubs and Showers: faucet and shower head condition, tub/shower drain flow, tub spout condition, tub waste and overflow

 

Kitchen Systems & Fixtures

The plumbing inspection continues in the kitchen. Your inspection in the kitchen can include any and all of the following:

  • Faucet and sink condition
  • Drain piping
  • Emergency water shutoff and supply
  • Garbage disposal condition
  • Dishwasher shutoff, supply, and drain
  • Refrigerator water connection
  • Water filter condition
  • Speed to hot water delivery

 

Laundry Room Inspection

A laundry room plumbing inspection helps to identify potential problems early, ensuring that your laundry room operates efficiently and safely, and preventing water damage or other plumbing-related issues. Some of the items inspected include:

  • Faucet condition
  • Emergency shutoff and supply
  • Sink trap and drain
  • Drain flow
  • Washing machine valves
  • Washing machine hoses
  • Washing machine drain
  • Gas connection to dryer
  • Dryer vent

Water Quality Testing

An assessment will be conducted to evaluate the safety and suitability of water for consumption and use. These tests can be performed on drinking water from various sources, such as municipal supplies, wells, and other water systems. Here are the key components and steps involved in a typical water quality test:

  • Grains of hardness
  • Hardness level
  • Existing water softener condition
  • Existing carbon filter condition
  • Iron levels
  • Sulfur levels (‘rotten egg smell’)

Water Lines Inspection

It’s important to have your water lines checked at to ensure that everything is functioning correctly and to identify potential problems before they become major issues. Key water line inspection items include:

  • Overall assessment of house pipe condition
  • Visible signs of corrosion, leaks, or damage on all exposed pipes and fittings
  • Check outdoor spigots for leaks or damage
  • Inspect anti-siphon device on hose bibs (to prevent backflow)

 

Sump Pump Inspection

Another important home plumbing system, a sump pump functions to prevent flooding by automatically removing accumulated water and directing it away from the home. When inspecting your sump pump, our plumber may check the following:

  • Pump valve
  • High water alarm
  • Battery back-up charge
  • Discharge piping
  • Drain flow
  • Overall sump pump condition

Why Should I Get A Plumbing Inspection?

Overall, a whole home plumbing inspection aims to identify potential problems before they become major issues, ensure the plumbing system is operating efficiently, and provide peace of mind to homeowners. A home plumbing inspection is a good idea for several reasons:

  1. Early Detection of Issues: Identifies potential problems such as leaks, corrosion, or blockages before they become major issues, preventing costly repairs.
  2. Prevent Water Damage: Helps prevent water damage to your home by ensuring all plumbing components are in good condition and functioning properly.
  3. Health and Safety: Ensures the quality and safety of your water supply by checking for contaminants or hazards like mold and mildew.
  4. Efficiency and Performance: Improves the efficiency of your plumbing system, potentially lowering water bills and ensuring appliances run smoothly.
  5. Compliance: Ensures that your plumbing system meets local building codes and regulations.
  6. Home Value: Maintains or increases the value of your home by ensuring a well-maintained plumbing system, which can be a key selling point for potential buyers.
