Benefits of a Home Plumbing Inspection
Sure, there are plenty of things you can live without. Like your old 8-track player, you refuse to part with, 25 pairs of shoes when maybe 24 would do just as nicely, or an old-fashioned ringer washing machine.
But we’re betting there are other things on your list you THINK you can live without, but that either or eventually will catch up with you and make you sorry you waited so long. Waiting too long for a dental check-up and cleaning is one of those, as that creates an open door for cavities or gum disease. Here’s another biggie that you also might recognize from experience: waiting too long to have your home plumbing inspected by a professional.
What makes that so vitally important to your family’s ongoing comfort, convenience, and even your safety? For starters, plumbing fixtures and systems are mechanical objects that don’t last forever. Which is another way of saying they are built to eventually fail? But with regular inspections, your equipment will last longer, you’ll have fewer repairs to deal with and lower repair costs, and yes, we can even enhance your family’s safety.
Here are a few examples of what an Arnold & Sons Plumbing inspection includes:
- Check all exposed pipes for even pinhole cracks that can eventually expand and become costlier to repair…not to mention all the water that’s being wasted in the meantime.
- Check for signs of hidden water leaks that could cause structural damage to your home and even ignite an electrical fire.
- Check connections to water using appliances such as the dishwasher, refrigerator, and washing machine to ensure you don’t come home one day to an indoor pool.
- Inspect drains and toilets to ensure proper, unobstructed drainage.
- Inspect your water heater to ensure peak working harder and ultimate safety. That includes inspecting the wiring to guard against an electrical fire. We also inspect for potential gas or carbon monoxide leaks.
Has it been a year or longer since your last whole-house plumbing inspection? If so, we recommend that you don’t live without it any longer so we can provide the kind of professional results and added peace of mind our customers have grown to rely on.
